Universal Music Group Nashville singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves, 23, recently completed recording her debut album in Nashville, TN and will release her first single "Merry Go Round" to radio September 10. The album was co-produced by Kacey, Shane McAnally and Luke Laird and is set for release in late 2012.
Kacey, a Texas native, began singing publicly at 8-years-old and wrote her first song at 9-years-old. To date, that talent has produced cuts for multi-platinum artists such as Martina McBride and Miranda Lambert. Miranda’s current album includes Kacey’s co-written track "Mama’s Broken Heart" which Rolling Stone Magazine ranked #26 in their "50 Best Singles of 2011" list.
Musical influences range from Loretta Lynn and John Prine to bands like Cake and The Beach Boys. Kacey was honored to open for Willie Nelson last year and recently wrapped opening for Lady Antebellum in Europe and Alison Krauss in the US.
