Country cutie Kacey Musgraves shocked Grammy viewers when she won Country Song of the Year and Best Country Album, leaving country’s reigning queen Taylor Swift empty-handed. Is it time for Taylor to hand over the crown?
25-year-old Kacey Musgraves is officially giving Taylor Swift a run for her money! The now two-time Grammy Award winner seemingly came out of nowhere to steal the nation’s hearts during the Jan. 26 show, and we couldn’t be more obsessed!
Kacey Musgraves: The New Taylor Swift
Kacey is definitely having the year of her life — the gorgeous brunette’s first major studio album (she self-released three others before appearing on the USA Network’s Nashville Star in 2007) Same Trailer Different Park was a massive hit in the country world; earning her four Grammy Award nods.
Kacey tied Taylor and Lorde for the most nominations received by a woman in 2014, and she totally stunned us when she won the two biggest country awards of the night! Same Trailer Different Park earned the Country Album of the Year album, while its hit single “Merry Go ‘Round” won Best Country Song. Pretty impressive for a relative unknown, no?
Kacey also performed her hit “Follow Your Arrow” during the Jan. 26 show — in front of an audience filled with music’s biggest celebs, not to mention the millions of viewers at home — and she totally wowed the audience with her smooth vocals and light-up cowboy boots.
Needless to say America was smitten, and even celebs like Katy Perry are starting to take notice! Katy invited Kacey to open up her 2014 US tour, which will expose Kacey to thousands upon thousands of adoring Katy fans from New York to California! This will be a huge opportunity for Kacey, and we certainly think that the gorgeous young star will start showing up on magazine covers and the top of the iTunes chart in no times!
I’m so happy @KaceyMusgraves is going on tour with me. I want a pair of my own light up boots! 🌵
