Country music has seen some new stars step out in the music industry and one of those brilliant stars is Kacey Musgraves. She has been a breath of fresh air for country music and has more or less become the leader of the new genre of country music stars trying to make their mark. Her double Grammy haul and her performance at the most recent Grammy Awards has put her under the spotlight. The stage is now set for her to shine. To cap off a whirlwind last few months, she is now about to hit the road for a memorable tour and her stature today will ensure that Kacey Musgraves tickets are the talk of the town everywhere she goes to perform. It has been a spectacular rise for her and long may it continue.
Kacey Musgraves was into music since a very young age. She started to learn various instruments when she was only eight years old. Kacey then began to perform in the church. A year later, she started to write her own songs, the first of them being Notice Me. Her next step was to go and make her mark in the opry scene. She started to perform almost every weekend and that provided her invaluable insight into what it took to perform in front of a live audience.
First Steps as a Professional Artist
Kacey continued to play through her high school. Then with some funding from her family, she recorded her first album Movin On. She was only seventeen years old. Kacey followed that up by releasing another independent album next year in 2003 titled Wanted: One Good Cowboy.
Nashville Star and Big Label Debut
Kacey Musgraves came out with a self-titled album in 2007 which, like its two predecessors, was released independently as well. Her big break came when she got a chance to compete in the reality singing contest Nashville Star in 2007 as well. Kacey came seventh and what she did on the show brought her to the attention of many.
Kacey started to perform with bigger stars and her hard work paid off when her talents were recognized by Mercury Records who gave Kacey her first recording contract. She hit the studios and released her song Merry Go Round. That was followed by her big label debut album titled Same Trailer Different Park in the year 2012. The track as well as the album turned out to be huge hits to announce Kaceys arrival into mainstream music in some style.
She won the CMA Award in 2013 in the New Artist of the Year Category. Merry Go Round won her a Grammy for Best Country Song whereas Same Trailer Different Park captured her another Grammy in the category of Best Country Album. Kacey Musgraves has joined the league of big stars now. She has had to work hard for it and now that she has reached there, she is going to make the most of it. She owes that to her fans and most importantly to herself.
