And the winner of the best lineup ever assembled in country music goes to ...
I heard rumblings last year about Beach Boy, Brian Wilson, wanting to duet with Kacey Musgraves - today it officially happened.
Since her debut album Same Trailer Different Park, Kacey Musgraves has been on the verge of super-stardom. She's won Grammys, toured with Katy Perry, and gained fans all around the world. The one thing missing? A bona-fide radio hit.
In Texas we've been fortunate to know and love Kacey Musgraves for years. But back in November of 2013, when the rest of the world was just learning about her, Musgraves and now-boyfriend Misa Arriago gave us a spectacular rendition of Elvis Presley’s “Are You Lonesome Tonight.”
If you listen to Radio Texas, LIVE! with any sort of regularity, you're likely a more all-around happy person, and you've probably heard us talkin' about Brandy Clark. Not only did she duet with Wade Bowen on the remake of Alabama's Love in the First Degree, she's co-written songs for Miranda Lambert, The Band Perry, Reba, Billy Currington, and Kacey Musgraves, just to name a few.
On Monday (Oct. 13), American Music Awards nominees were revealed on Good Morning America, and Texas is lookin' good this year.
I wish more often there were songs like this which resonates on the inside – a song that is pure and fresh. It should happen more often than not.
The 2014 CMA nominations came out last week, but I was on vacation then, so today is the day we're getting them up for you. I gotta say it is so great to see Kacey Musgraves follow up her Grammy wins with a couple noms, and our old friends George Strait, Miranda Lambert and Eli Young Band get theirs.
This is GOOD news. For Musgraves, who has toured (or will tour) with everyone from Kenny Chesney and Lady Antebellum to Katy Perry and Willie Nelson, it was just a matter of time before she collaborated with one of 'em... And we're stoked Willie is up first.
Friday (6/13) you can catch Kacey Musgraves CMT Crossroads debut with Katy Perry, tonight (6/12) you can watch her on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. I wonder what games he'll make her play... whatever it is, of course it'll be a great, and trending on Facebook and Twitter come Friday.
