While on Instagram today, I realized how many incredible artists are posting about Kacey’s new album as well. It warmed my heart! See some of our favorites below…
There is nothing more attractive than someone continually striving to master their craft. Allowing your creative output to evolve synonymously with who and where you are in your life is essential to the artist who gives a shit about the quality of their platform. But when surrounded by a popular musical climate that encourages complacency and awards the mediocre, it is truly a brave feat. Ever the does-what-she-fucking-wants creative woman, she knows what’s up. As a comrade, I strongly champion this new wonderful work. And the timing and talent of two very special creators, @tronian and @thesilverseas, was the magic in the wind on this thing. They were wild pilots unafraid to fly over the unknown. I can also say, from periodically stopping by the studio, the love for this project and the patience of @craigalvin was indispensable. I couldn’t be more proud. Kacey Lee you special bird. BUY IT LOVE IT DO MUSHROOMS TO IT.
In an interview with “Entertainment Weekly,” Kacey said the new music would have a “trippy” slant with the music influenced by everyone from the Bee Gees and Neil Young to Sade. We also believe some of the new songs are named “Velvet Elvis”, “Space Cowboy”, “Wonder Woman”, and “Butterflies”. All of these songs are ones she has been implementing into her set list while she’s on the Breakers tour with Little Big Town.
We are also hoping to hear a fan favorite, “Rainbow” make its way onto the new album. Overall, we are so excited to see what 2018 has in store for Kacey and us as her supporters! Let us know what you think in the comments, and be sure to check out this gorgeous new photo of Kacey that she posted on Instagram. We have a large version of it in our gallery for you!

Country music source, Taste of Country just posted an article with their list of the most powerful women in country. Kacey came in at No. 26! Read the full article below:
Kacey Musgraves makes this list of great country women because she was a powerful influencer at a time that one was sorely needed.
The singer found a potent mix of traditional country themes and pop melodies that endeared her to fans of both. Songwriting is her greatest talent, with no disrespect meant to her singing and performance skills. Singles like “Merry Go ‘Round,” “Follow Your Arrow” and “Biscuits” were sharp and catchy, but never shallow. Musgraves’ music is a diversion when it’s played on the radio, which is both why she’s so popular and why she has yet to have that big radio hit.
Dig deeper into her two (so far) studio albums to find what are perhaps her best and most dynamic songs. “Late to the Party” shows a sweeter side to her personality, while “Family Is Family” finds a way to capture an honest love for friends and family. She doesn’t censor — ever — and since her introduction has encouraged listeners to follow their hearts and be who they are, no matter their color or creed. The songs from Pageant Material step away from the small-town malaise she so accurately portrayed on Same Trailer, Different Park. At 24 years old she was an old, wise soul.
Musgraves’ bucking of the system has created space for women in country music to thrive when radio ignores them. Cam and Ashley Monroe live here. Do we have Maren Morris without Musgraves stepping up first? It’s a difficult, but fair question. All thrive as album artists that refuse to sacrifice art for the sake of commercialism. One could say the same thing about many of the artists who top of this list of country music’s most powerful women, which is being revealed one great woman at a time, all month long.
Is Kacey Musgraves the next Miranda Lambert? Here’s to hoping.

Kacey Musgraves is releasing her song “Biscuits” on March 16th! The song will be available to download on iTunes. Check out a new gorgeous photo of Kacey rocking her Biscuits shirt in our gallery.
Texas-native and Nashville-based singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves will be releasing a new single, “Biscuits,” to country radio March 16th. This will be the debut single from her upcoming Mercury Records Nashville sophomore album which follows up GRAMMY “Best Country Album” and ACM “Album Of The Year” winner, Same Trailer Different Park.
“Biscuits” was written by Musgraves, Shane McAnally, and Brandy Clark, and will be available at iTunes March 17th.
“I’m very proud to be kickin’ things off with Biscuits! I think it’s the perfect preview to the record we had SO much fun making,” exclaimed Musgraves. “The sound of this song represents so many of the things I love about country music. And be warned – it may inspire a square dance.”
Musgraves is currently on the road headlining her ‘Same Tour Different Trailer’ tour across the US.
Cool news, guys – Kacey Musgraves and Willie Nelson are planning to do a song together, maybe it’ll be on Kacey’s next album? That would be awesome! Read more below…
Kacey Musgraves has been on tour this month with Willie Nelson and Alison Krauss. And according to a new interview with Nelson in, of all places, CelebStoner, the “Merry Go Round” singer and the country legend are planning to collaborate on a recording project.
“Kacey and I are planning on doing a song together,” Nelson said in the interview, “an old song I wrote called ‘You Sure This Is Where You Want to Be.’ We’re going to do some recording together and that’s going to be cool.”
Nelson wrote the song (with Buddy Emmons) decades ago, and it first appeared on his 1965 album Country Willie – His Own Songs under the title “Are You Sure.” The song also appeared on the stripped-down 2003 collection Crazy: The Demo Sessions.
Musgraves has already gone on record as a big fan of that particular song. In a 2013 Facebook post, she called it “two minutes and 13 seconds of the realest s–t you’ll ever hear. Never gets old.”
Dress rehearsal for “Crossroads,” the June 13 CMT special that pairs the pop star with country newcomer Kacey Musgraves, is an hour away, but all Perry can think about is getting undressed. Recently arrived at her trailer on-site at Sony’s Culver City lot, she slips out of her Jeremy Scott tube-sock dress and into a white bathrobe and flip-flops, clearly unconcerned about who might be watching.
“I’ve seen her naked,” says Perry, 29, motioning to Musgraves.
”A couple of times,” Musgraves, 25, confirms. “And it won’t be the last.”
Further occasions for dressing-room exhibitionism will come in August, when Musgraves joins Perry’s arena tour for 15 dates and the better part of a month. It’s an interesting move for both. Headliners often bestow their validation, and the benefit of exposure, on opening acts they admire. “I always like to introduce great music to the people in the audience,” says Perry. But pop princesses like Perry don’t often pick country newcomers. And while the other acts opening various legs of Perry’s U.S. tour — Capital Cities and Tegan & Sara — make oddball pop music, both have had top 20 hits on the Billboard Hot 100. Musgraves’ “Follow Your Arrow” peaked at No. 60 on the Hot 100 and reached No. 10 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
The contrasts between the two are evident when they take the stage the next night, from head (lime-green shoulder-length choppy cut for Perry, long Loretta Lynn curls for Musgraves) to toe (Manolo Blahniks for Perry, custom-made Old Gringo boots for Musgraves). But so are the commonalities. Both are all-American girls who get away with pushing the boundaries. Perry broke out in 2008 with “I Kissed a Girl”; Musgraves endorsed the same behavior in 2013’s “Follow Your Arrow,” a song about those who find the straight and narrow “a little too straight.”
No doubt in both cases this represents a sensibility shaped by a combination of a conservative background with a moral and artistic restlessness. Perry is the child of evangelical ministers. As for Musgraves, “My parents aren’t crazy conservative,” she says. “They’re actually pretty open-minded. But my grandparents are, and where I’m from, East Texas, is the Bible Belt.” So she can relate to Perry on that score. “It gave us perspective because we both have that. But we both left those worlds.”
”We left those worlds, but we kept our compasses,” Perry adds. (“Awww,” Musgraves interjects.)”I think [Kacey] straddles the line like I straddle the line of appropriateness and still maintaining a sexuality that is healthy and exciting. And it’s not all about that. It’s about sending inspiring and empowering messages and being a think-for-yourself type of woman.” These two freethinkers crossed paths when Musgraves released the first single from “Same Trailer Different Park,” “Merry Go ‘Round,” in September 2012. Perry tweeted her love for it. “I understand that I have a lot of followers on Twitter, and one tweet can go a distance,” she says.
Musgraves felt the effects at a distance — she was crossing a street in Dublin when she glanced at her phone and saw her Twitter following spike. But Perry wasn’t done yet. “Stalked her on the Internet, as I do with everyone,” says Perry, who reached out to bring Musgraves to Los Angeles to work on the early writing sessions for “Prism.” Though those songs didn’t make the record, a partnership was born. Musgraves — along with Sara Bareilles, Ellie Goulding and Tegan & Sara — was part of Perry’s We Can Survive concert, a benefit for young women with breast cancer, at the Hollywood Bowl, in Los Angeles, in October 2013. And the two got in another studio session at the time. “A good song came out of it,” Musgraves told Billboard in December. “I love when brains come together with different colors and influences to throw into the mix. We’re fans of each other, so it works.” The announcement of the “Crossroads” taping followed a few months later.
The stakes are high for Musgraves to leverage her association with Perry into crossover opportunities in radio and touring alike. Although she has played a handful of stadium dates as an opener for Kenny Chesney and just wrapped an arena run with Lady Antebellum, her own draw as a headliner tells a more interesting story. On her most recent club tour, at the end of 2013, she played 800- to 1,000-capacity venues like Detroit’s Saint Andrews Hall and New York’s Bowery Ballroom — rooms more commonly associated with the latest indie-rock craze than a Nashville newbie. Playing to mainstream crowds in the Midwest and Canada could provide the exposure Musgraves needs to go from critical fave to Taylor Swift-like crossover. “It’s an amazing pop look, the stamp of validation in another world for Kacey Musgraves from the queen, Katy,” says Mitch Rose, head of the Los Angeles music department at Creative Artists Agency (CAA), which booked both artists on the tour.
