Country newcomer Kacey Musgraves has been clutched in a whirlwind ever since the release of her acclaimed "Same Trailer Different Park" record earlier this year. Featuring her Top 10 hit "Merry Go 'Round," the album has earned an overwhelmingly positive critical response, furthering her launch into superstardom. The glittering mayhem continued on Wednesday (Oct. 23) when the singer-songwriter was handpicked by pop superstar Katy Perry to perform at this year's "We Can Survive" benefit concert, along with Sara Bareilles, Tegan & Sara, Bonnie McKee and Ellie Goulding.
Taking place Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl, the eclectic lineup closed out the night with a rousing rendition of Perry's Hot 100 No. 1 smash "Roar," off her recently released "Prism" set. Also during the evening, Musgraves performed her new country entry "Follow Your Arrow," an anthem about following "your arrow wherever it points."
"Amazing night, amazing women," the 24-year-old posted afterwards on Instagram, attaching a cute photo of all the talented ladies (above).
This fall is proving to be a blockbuster year for Musgraves as she heads into next month's 47th Annual CMA Awards with a whopping six nominations under her belt. Including nods for Female Vocalist of the Year and album of the Year, Musgraves has earned the most nominations ever for a new female solo artist. Her co-penned "Mama's Broken Heart" (as recorded by Miranda Lambert) earned her one of two nominations in Song of the Year.
