Kacey Musgraves

Kacey Musgraves is a witty singer-songwriter.

Her new takes on old country themes won us over on "Same Trailer Different Park." But her sound has become even more lush, edging closer to the rhinestone-encrusted countrypolitan.

Musgraves' elegant style on her latest record, the Grammy-nominated "Pageant Material," translates well to the lavish pink look of her latest tour, the Country & Western Rhinestone Revue.

"Pageant Material" was a critical favorite in 2015, and the singer is praised for being a progressive voice in the world of country.

"I didn't really have any intentions going in, except for just wanting to write good songs, country songs," Musgraves told Taste of Country. "All my songs are inspired by what's going on in my world and in my life."

Musgraves co-wrote all of the album's songs, and parts of her are in all of them. Her grandmother's voice even appears in "This Town," telling the story behind the song.

Musgraves grew up in Golden, Texas, where she says she knew every person in her high school's graduating class.

"I love that I'm from a small town," she told Billboard. "There's something to being held accountable in a small town. If you're mean, people are gonna find out about it."
