Kacey Musgraves Returns to No. 1 After Grammy Wins
Kacey Musgraves has plenty of reasons to celebrate. The songstress, who took home two Grammy awards last month, reclaimed the No.1 spot on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart with her debut CD, 'Same Trailer Different Park,' after her performance on the show.
The record, which won the Grammy for Best Country Album, has already spawned three singles, including 'Merry Go 'Round,' which also won a Grammy for Best Country Song. 'Same Trailer Different Park' first debuted at the top of the Billboard Country Album chart last March.
According to Billboard, sales for her freshman project shot up 146% following Musgraves' performance on the 2014 Grammy stage. The 25-year-old sang her latest single, 'Follow Your Arrow,' which has stirred up plenty of controversy in the country music community -- but the singer stands behind the tune.
“The record was basically done, and I was getting a lot of pressure because there were already a lot of great songs in the batch,” Musgraves recalls. “But [co-writers] Brandy [Clark], Shane [McAnally] and I had these ideas, and they just really encapsulated where my head was at. I knew exactly what I wanted to do sonically, and I said, ‘This isn’t a complete record without them.’”
Musgraves is currently on the road with Lady Antebellum on their Take Me Downtown Tour. She will hit the road with pop star Katy Perry on Perry's Prismatic World Tour in August. See all of her upcoming shows here.
