Kacey Musgraves is the bold, sharp-shooting lyricist possessing a sweet voice, eccentric personality and a penchant of capturing real life in her songs. With two Grammy Awards under her proverbial belt, the singer-songwriter hopes to revive country music, which is currently steeped in party and and dirty road anthems, and she has done so through reaching as many fans as possible. That's why you'll find her out on the road this summer with Alison Krauss, Willie Nelson and Katy Perry (on the Prismatic World Tour in August).
Musgraves will find a new audience this Thursday (June 12), too, when she takes the stage on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The Reigning CMA New Artist Of The Year will perform a song called "The Trailer Song," which is not featured on her Mercury Records debut Same Trailer Different Park. The song, a Musgraves co-write, shares a similar tone to such songs as "Follow Your Arrow" and her debut Top 10 single "Merry Go 'Round," a charming, tongue-in-cheek perspective on social issues. "There's nothing to see here, so go back to your trailer," she coos on the songs tender chorus.
On Friday (June 13), Musgraves and Perry will be featured on CMT Crossroads, an episodic musical venture pairing vastly different artists from vastly different genres for an evening of fun. Previously recorded, the two singers will trade off on each others' songs, from Perry's "Roar" and "Teenage Dream" to Musgraves' own catalog. The event airs on CMT at 10/9c.
Most recently, Musgraves proved to be a showstopper at the 2014 CMT Music Awards, performing an Alan Jackson tribute alongside Lee Ann Womack. The two females performed Jackon's hit "Livin' On Love," while images of Jackson's 25-year career in videos played in the background. Carrie Underwood was also on hand to introduce the special moment. Later, Jackson was handed the first-ever CMT Impact Award, chronicling his long legacy in the industry.
