Kacey Musgraves added ACM Album of the Year to her list of accolades when she received the honor at the 49th annual ACM Awards on Sunday, April 6. Kacey Musgraves’ first album with Mercury Nashville, “Same Trailer Different Park,” has been like an arrow to a bullseye, garnering applause from country music peers and even a GRAMMY earlier in 2014.
Kacey Musgraves is known for lyrics that are clever, but direct. Her total disregard for sugar coating and the gleam of mischief in her eye when she sings have won over country music fans and peers alike.
When her name was called from among the list of nominees for Album of the Year, fellow wild child, Eric Church broke into vigorous applause. Kacey Musgraves has obviously earned an admirer in the bend-the-rules-and-break-the-molds male vocalist.
When she finally made her way to the stage, looking much less rebellious than usual in a floor-length, powder blue gown, Kacey Musgraves said:
Oh my goodness. Whoo! Thank you so much. I can tell you I really did not expect this one. I’m so proud of it (her album). I’m so proud to be a woman representing country music.
“Same Trailer Different Park” beat out the following fellow nominees:
“Based On A True Story: - Blake Shelton
“Crash My Party” - Luke Bryan
“Here’s to the Good Times” - Florida Georgia Line
“Two Lanes of Freedom” - Tim McGraw
The win for Album of the Year is Kacey Musgraves’ first ACM Awards win.
