Kacey Musgraves is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year for “Follow Your Arrow” at this year’s ACM Awards. She is one of a handful of country music females garnering acclaim and getting attention from fans, critics and industry insiders. The Texas native is proud to be among the women – past and present – in country music.
“I’m so excited to be part of the women in country music movement,” says Kacey. “I mean, I look at people like Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton, songwriters who were sassy and intelligent and beautiful and also intelligent and humorous. They inspired me, and if I can be at all any part of that in carrying that on, that’s just the icing on the cake for me, and I feel like I’ve done my job.”
