Why Country-Pop Star Kacey Musgraves Should Be on Your Radar

From self-releasing albums to appearing on the fifth season of singing show “Nashville Star,” Kacey Musgraves has really made a name for herself capturing the hearts of country music fans—and now she’s advocating for LGBTQ+ communities.

Musgraves is a force and her repertoire of songs including "High Horse" and "Velvet Elvis" have earned her a place on the pop, folk, and international charts.

Her fourth studio album “Golden Hour” was inspired by her marriage to husband Ruston Kelly and debuted at number four on the U.S. Billboard 200.

The singer-songwriter also scored a spot as a guest judge on "RuPaul’s Drag Race." “I feel like I’m a drag queen trapped inside my own body and so to be hanging out with the queens of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and learning their tricks, and getting to spill the tea with them, and just have fun, it was a dream come true,” Musgraves said.

Before becoming the music icon she is today, Musgraves had to two-step her way to the top.

From performing in 10 gallon hats, to dressing up as Hannah Montana for birthday parties, Musgraves has put in work to get to the place she is today.

“We would travel to every little opry in Texas and festival and pretty much anything I could sing at,” she said.

At the age of 12, Musgraves got her first guitar but she says  her western vibe wasn’t always accepted.

“I grew up singing like Western swing music and lookin’ back you know, I mean I definitely appreciate growing up with music like that, but whenever you’re a kid in a high school or middle school and you’re singing Western swing and you’re wearing a 10 gallon hat, and fringe you’re a target.” In 2007, Musgraves competed on “Nashville Star” and placed seventh.

She’s said the show helped her self-reflect as an artist.

Six years later, her debut album “Same Trailer, Different Park,” went Gold, and became a CMA, ACM, and Grammy award-winning artist.

In a personal letter in Billboard, Musgraves opened up about growing up narrow-minded and explained how her small-town life limited her views.

“I love where I came from, but the stance on homosexuality is unfortunately still pretty archaic and behind the facts,” she said.

“Country music has always been a genre built on songs and stories celebrating real life so I took it upon myself to include my own awakening into my music and knew that I would be taking some heat for it.” She credits her fans for her ongoing success.

“So, to my friends in the LGBTQ community: thank you.

While the career stuff is great, it's fleeting.

You changed me as a human.” This video, "Why Country-Pop Star Kacey Musgraves Should Be on Your Radar", first appeared on nowthisnews.com.
