Emerging from the humble town of Golden, Texas is the up and coming, recent nominee for "New Female Vocalist" from the Academy of Country Music: Kacey Musgraves. Although her roots lie in a small town of only 600, Kacey is anything but a small artist.
At the mere age of 24, the extraordinarily talented and determined Kacey has one self-released album and is releasing her next album, "Same Trailer Different Park" on March 19th, 2013. One of her more popular songs, "Merry Go 'Round" presently ranks at #14 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs list and is starting to spike interest from music lovers of all kinds across the nation.
Kacey not only has a beautiful voice and an exceptional tune to her songs, but her lyrics prove thought-provoking and reveal a type of raw honesty that must be cherished. Kacey's lyrics pull at the heartstrings and unveil the tragic beauty found in life, love, loss and everything in between.
From a small town myself, a personal victim of high school heartbreak, some of her lines in "Merry Go 'Round": "We think the first time's good enough/So, we hold on to high school love/Sayin' we won't end up like our parents" not only ignite a flame in my heart, but personally touch me in a way both captivating and exceptionally unique--as if Kacey Musgraves knows my story herself.
As Kacey's beautiful voice pours into my headphones, her lyrics resonate in my soul and the tune lingers in my ears long after the song is done. Kacey is not only an artist worth listening to, but she is an artist well worth watching as she makes her way into the music world. As Kacey continues to climb the charts, she is definitely leaving a mark in the hearts and souls of all of her listeners. The memorable lines in her hit song, "Merry Go 'Round" ring true with Kacey's herself, "On this broken merry go 'round and 'round and 'round we go/Where it stops nobody knows and it ain't slowin' down." Although Kacey's future is far from predictable, we know her merry go 'round is far from slowing down.
