Kacey Musgraves Catches Katy Perry’s Eye

Pop Star Praises Country Newcomer in Glamour

This never gets old. When two artists support each other, sing each other’s praises and go public with their mutual admiration, it just warms my heart. Especially when those two artists are women.

It happened with Taylor Swift and Faith Hill. And now it is Kacey Musgraves and Katy Perry’s turn.

Perry penned a story for Glamour magazine about the 10 women who inspire her. Coming in at No. 4? Country’s very own Musgraves.

“Kacey is one of the most unique songwriters I’ve heard in the past decade. She puts into words what the heart feels. (Download ’Merry Go ’Round’ or ’Follow Your Arrow’ to listen.) And she’s not bad on the eyes and has a great sense of humor the whole way through,” Perry wrote.

When Glamour posted the story on Twitter, saying “10 women who have changed @katyperry’s life,” Musgraves replied simply, “And you changed mine.”

Musgraves’ Instagram post about the Perry story added, “Thank you, Katy Perry, for being such a champion of me and ladies of all kinds. Back atchu.”

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
