Singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves, 23, recently signed to Mercury Records and is currently in the studio recording her debut album set for release in 2012. The album will be co-produced by Kacey, Shane McAnally and Luke Laird.
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 include Buck Owens, Loretta Lynn, Ryan Adams, John Prine and Willie Nelson. (And a wide range in-between). Kacey was honored to open for Willie Nelson last year and was just announced as the only opening act on John Mayer’s 2012 US tour.
