Golden, Texas native Kacey Musgraves released a number of independent albums before placing seventh on the USA talent show "Nashville Star." It still took a few years for Musgraves to get her big break, but when the time came, Musgraves made the best of her opportunity. The singer signed with Mercury Nashville in 2012. Musgraves' first two albums have both topped the Country charts in the United States and the UK and landed in the Top 5 of the Billboard 200. Kacey's first single, "Merry Go 'Round" was certified platinum and was the first of five Top 40 Country hits. You can check out "Dime Store Cowgirl" from her latest album, 2015's Pageant Material, in the featured video above.
Kacey Musgraves' rise to country music fame has garnered her a number of awards. After the success of her gold-selling 2013 major label debut Same Trailer Different Park, Musgraves was nominated sixteen major awards, although she only took home the Country Music Association "New Artist of the Year" Award. In 2014, she was nominated for nineteen more awards. The singer and songwriter took home Grammy Awards for "Best Country Song" and "Best Country Album," two Academy of Country Music Awards for "Album of the Year" as both artist and producer, and the Country Music Association Award for "Song of the Year." In 2015, she was nominated for three awards, but she came away empty. Although 2016 is only about one-third over, Musgraves has already won the CMA's "International Achievement Award" and been nominated for a Grammy and two ACM Awards.
Musgraves has also earned a reputation as one of Country music's top songwriters. The talented composer started writing songs at the age of eight. She has gone on to pen songs for Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, Gretchen Wilson, Deana Carter, and others. She also contributed five songs to the hit ABC show "Nashville," which is about the rising and falling stars of feuding country singers in the series' title city.
