Kacey Lee Musgraves was born August 21, 1988, in Golden, Texas, to Craig and Karen (née Abrams) Musgraves. Craig is the owner of a small printing business, M-Prints Printing, Inc in Mineola, Texas, and Karen Musgraves is an artist. Kacey has stated that she was born six weeks prematurely and only weighed 5 pounds. Kacey has one younger sister, Kelly Christine Sutton (née Musgraves), who is a photographer.  
She began songwriting at the age of 8, when she wrote a song called "Notice Me" for her elementary school graduation. She first learned to play music on the mandolin, then at age 12 started taking guitar lessons from a local musician named John DeFoore, which she later described as "one of the most important things that ever happened to me."
Musgraves first got her start in the country music industry at the age of 18, when she recorded demos to make money. Her mother would take her to local music festivals to sing western swing music. She graduated from Mineola High School in 2006.
Career 2008–2014: Early beginnings and Same Trailer Different Park
Musgraves was discovered professionally in 2008 while living in Austin by producer Monte Robison for his independent record label, Triple Pop. Musgraves' two acoustic recordings for Triple Pop (covers of OneRepublic's "Apologize" and Miley Cyrus' "See You Again") are available on a digital EP released in 2012. “Apologize” (Acoustic Version) charted in the Billboard Hot Singles Chart at #23 on February 15, 2014, and racked up over 31,000,000 streams on Spotify. To commemorate the 10-year anniversary on March 30, 2018, Triple Pop released the “Acoustic Remixed” digital EP which featured newly remixed and remastered versions of the same recordings.
Musgraves joined Lady Antebellum on the European leg of their Own the Night Tour in 2012. She also signed with Mercury Nashville in 2012 and released her solo debut single "Merry Go 'Round". The song is included on her album Same Trailer Different Park, which was produced and co-written by Shane McAnally and Luke Laird and released on March 19, 2013.
Musgraves also co-wrote Miranda Lambert's 2013 single "Mama's Broken Heart". Same Trailer Different Park produced additional hit singles in "Blowin' Smoke" and "Follow Your Arrow". Rolling Stone magazine listed "Follow Your Arrow" at number 39 of their list of 100 Greatest Country Songs of All Time, and said that Musgraves was "one of the loudest symbols of young country musicians embracing progressive values."
"Undermine", a song co-written by Musgraves and Trent Dabbs, was featured in the ABC television series Nashville on October 17, 2012.
Musgraves was nominated for four awards at the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year. Kacey's fourth studio album, Same Trailer Different Park, debuted at number 2, selling 42,000 copies.
Musgraves was also nominated for four Grammy Awards at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, tying Taylor Swift and Lorde for the most nominations received by a woman that year. Those nominations included Best New Artist, Best Country Album (Same Trailer Different Park), and Best Country Song for both "Mama's Broken Heart" and "Merry Go 'Round". "Merry Go 'Round" won the Best Country Song Grammy award, and Same Trailer Different Park won in Best Country Album.
Musgraves joined Katy Perry on the North American leg of her Prismatic World Tour as well as Willie Nelson and Alison Krauss on select dates during their tour. Musgraves provided backing vocals for "Bourbon in Kentucky", the lead single on Dierks Bentley's 2013 album Riser.
Kacey Musgraves at the Grand Ole Opry
In April 2014, Musgraves won the Academy of Country Music award for album of the year for Same Trailer Different Park. In June 2014, she released a new song called The Trailer Song, which she debuted on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
Same Trailer Different Park was certified gold in August 2014 for selling over 500,000 copies. Musgraves' single "Follow Your Arrow" was also certified gold, and "Merry Go Round" was certified platinum.
2015–2017: Pageant Material and A Very Kacey Christmas
Musgraves announced in late August 2014 that she would perform a ten-show headlining tour, dubbed "Same Tour Different Trailer" starting on September 25 and ending on October 19.
In September 2014, Musgraves said that she had begun writing songs for her second major label album, and planned to begin work in earnest with Luke Laird and Shane MacAnally later in the year after her touring schedule finished. "Biscuits," the lead single from the album, was released on March 16, 2015.
Pageant Material, Musgraves' second studio album, was released on June 23, 2015. To support the album, Musgraves performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (June 9, 2015), Late Night with Seth Meyers (June 10, 2015), Good Morning America (June 23, 2015), The View (June 24, 2015), Jimmy Kimmel Live! (September 14, 2015), The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (January 8, 2016), and the Late Late Show with James Corden (April 6, 2016).
Musgraves was featured on a remix of Miguel's single "Waves", which was released on February 26, 2016.
On September 7, 2016, Musgraves announced the release of her first Christmas album, A Very Kacey Christmas. The album, which features eight traditional and four original songs, was released on October 28, 2016, through Mercury Nashville. In support of the album, Musgraves embarked on a Christmas-themed tour, complete with a strings section, an accordion, bass, saxophone, clarinet and backup singers.
In September 2016, Musgraves was selected as one of 30 country music artists to perform on "Forever Country", a mash-up track of Take Me Home, Country Roads, On the Road Again, and I Will Always Love You. The song celebrates 50 years of the CMA Awards and secured Musgraves her first No. 1 country single.
In 2017, Musgraves provided backing vocals on "All the Best", a John Prine cover, for Zac Brown Band's album, Welcome Home. Also in 2017, Musgraves was featured on Outlaw: Celebrating The Music Of Waylon Jennings. Originally recorded for TV, it was later released on CD and DVD. During the broadcast Musgraves performed Jennings' song "The Wurlitzer Prize". Musgraves appeared on the June 21, 2017, episode of Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry to receive a psychic reading and connect with her grandmother, Barbara Taylor, to learn more details about her death in a house fire. Musgraves has said that her song "This Town", from the album Pageant Material, is about her grandmother, and that her voice appears in the opening of the song.
2018: Golden Hour
In October 2017, Musgraves posted a picture of herself on Twitter indicating she was in the studio writing new songs for her upcoming third studio album. On December 12, 2017, Musgraves announced the title of her third studio album Golden Hour through Entertainment Weekly. The songs "Butterflies" and "Space Cowboy" were released as the first singles from the album on February 23, 2018. In March, Musgraves performed at the 2018 C2C: Country to Country festival in London after previously playing the festival in 2016.
Musgraves premiered the third song from the album, "High Horse", on March 22, 2018, on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Apple Radio show. On March 29, 2018, she performed “Slow Burn” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Golden Hour was released on March 30, 2018, on MCA Nashville. Through June and July, Musgraves was the opening act on the second North American leg of Harry Styles: Live on Tour. Musgraves will embark on the Oh, What a World Tour in October 2018 in support of Golden Hour.
Musgraves lists Alison Krauss as one of her career role models, stating "I mean, how many Grammys does she have? She's just remained solid and true and great, and I respect that". Musgraves' favorite artist is John Prine.
Musgraves also lists Lee Ann Womack as one of her childhood influences: "Lee Ann Womack is from near where I grew up in east Texas so I've always looked up to her." Speaking of both Prine and Womack, Musgraves stated that "if I could sing it like Lee Ann would and say it like John would, then I feel like I've gotten somewhere".
Of her sophomore album, Musgraves listed albums by Glen Campbell, Bobbie Gentry, Marty Robbins, Charley Pride, Roger Miller and Jim Croce as influences and an interview with Rolling Stone Country cited Ray Price, Julie Miller and Loretta Lynn.
Non-country artists that Musgraves has mentioned as influences include Ryan Adams, Cake, Neil Young, Weezer, Imogen Heap and Electric Light Orchestra.
Lyrical themes and style
Musgraves is known for her progressive lyrics in the conservative country music genre. Her music has tackled controversial topics such as LGBT acceptance, safe sexual intercourse, recreational marijuana use, and questioning religious sentiment.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Musgraves talked about criticism she faced for her rebellious lyrics. "I think throwing the rebel card out there is really cheap," she said. "The things I'm singing about are not controversial to me, I don't push buttons to push buttons. I talk about things that have made an impression on me that a lot of people everywhere are going through."
In 2014, in an interview with ABC Radio, Musgraves said she had been in a relationship with her bandmate Misa Arriaga for several years, after becoming friends first.
Musgraves eventually met Ruston Kelly at the Bluebird Café in Nashville. In May 2016 they had a songwriting date, and they began dating shortly after. Musgraves has stated that the song "Butterflies" from her album Golden Hour is about her courtship with Kelly. On December 24, 2016, Musgraves became engaged to Kelly. They married on October 14, 2017, in Tennessee.
