The charted country world belongs to Kacey Musgraves whose third LP ‘Golden Hour’ swept the “Album of the Year” award during the most recent CMA Awards. Kacey was selected as the only female artist among the nominees, which also included Keith Urban (Graffiti U), Thomas Rhett (Life Changes), Dierks Bentley (The Mountain) and Chris Stapleton (From A Room, Vol. 2).
So what did Cody Alan dig up that could make this country queen blush? Cody discovered an album that Kacey Musgraves recorded at 12 or 13 years old.
It was a treasure that he has held onto since his days of hosting radio shows in Dallas, and he couldn’t wait to get the inside scoop during his interview with the “High Horse" singer.
“Was this your first ever project?” asked Cody.
“No girl that was my 2nd…3rd studio album,” Kacey replies.
Kacey recorded ‘One Good Cowboy’ while growing up in Texas. Even at the tender age of 13, Kacey was a studio pro, making this her 3rd studio recording. Her mother acted as creative director for her projects and would help her with photoshoots and the creative design for her album.
“She designed the cover.” Kacey tossed the cover back and forth searching it with her eyes and smiling. “She hid a little butterfly, a fake, she put a butterfly in there. And that’s just weird considering that the song "Butterflies," like, means a lot to me and it’s become kind of a thing for me.”
During the interview, Kacey revisited the good, the bad, and the ugly of her youthful musical upbringing. The only “ugly” part, which is debatable, is Kacey’s finely plucked youthful eyebrows. Her vocals, lyrical ability, and high Texas fashion are still very much on point.
