Universal Music Group Nashville singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves, 24, recently completed recording her debut album and released her first single “Merry Go Round” to radio September 10. The single was greeted with massive critical acclaim (Billboard, Rolling Stone, NY Post) and is currently inside the top 25 on the charts. The album was co-produced by Kacey, Shane McAnally and Luke Laird and is set for release in the spring 2013.
Kacey, a Texas native, began singing publicly at 8-years-old and wrote her first song at 9-years-old. To date, that talent has produced cuts for multi-platinum artists such as Martina McBride and Miranda Lambert. Miranda’s current album includes Kacey’s co-written track “Mama’s Broken Heart” which Rolling Stone Magazine ranked #26 in their “50 Best Singles of 2011” list.
Musical influences range from Loretta Lynn and John Prine to bands like Cake and The Beach Boys. Kacey was honored to open for Willie Nelson last year and recently wrapped opening for Lady Antebellum in Europe and Alison Krauss in the US. She will be featured as a special guest on Little Big Town’s upcoming The Tornado Tour, which launches January 31, 2013 and will also be an opener on Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Nation tour spring/summer of 2013.
