If you haven’t memorized the lyrics to at least half of the incredible new songs by Kacey Musgraves, you’re late to the party. The 24-year-old is making success look easy these days with the release of her new album, “Same Trailer Different Park,” and one hell of a television performance on TODAY yesterday on NBC. The album, co-produced by Musgraves herself, and friends Shane McAnally and Luke Laird is getting buzz from all major outlets. Rolling Stone gave it their full approval with a 4 out of 4 star rating saying, “the album showcases a songwriting voice you won’t hear anywhere else in pop: young, female, downwardly mobile, fiercely witty.” If that kind of response wasn’t exciting enough for the young star, this past Sunday she was also the focus of The New York Times profile “With a Rebel Twang.” Seriously, if you haven’t listened to this album yet you need to go RIGHT NOW and download it on iTunes. Be sure look for Musgraves at the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM) in Vegas on April 7th in categories Female Vocalist of the Year and Video of the Year (Artist & Producer). Oh and you can also catch her on her way to the TOP touring all summer long with Kenny and Eric Church.
