In 2013 she was a breakout country music star and now at the beginning of 2019 she has released a couple more albums that continue to show Kacey Musgraves’ potential. Once again she demonstrates that she is willing to take the lead in the formation of this generation’s country music. With her big hair and wit she proves herself more than up to the task. It is a country music that still pays reverence to its roots but also caters to the mainstream. And that is a-okay.
30-year-old Kacey Musgraves comes from Texas and has embarked on a career that many a girl from her part of the world has dreamed of. Kacey Musgraves has released her first country music album. Her strength is not her voice or her band rather it is something that won’t diminish with age – it is her writing strength. The girl can put a tune together. She writes songs about drugs, waiting tables, friends with benefits and even homosexuality. In other words, her songs are non-traditional. Musgraves sound is anything but. Forging her way down the road already paved out by the likes of Taylor Swift what will set her apart are her witty and intelligent lyrics. She shows that you can be upbeat and vibrant as well as intelligent in a song. Musgraves does not beat around the bush she comes straight to the point. A marriage of commercial and indie.
