Kacey Musgraves Admits She Slept Through the 2013 CMA Nominations
When the 2013 CMA Award nominees were named, Kacey Musgraves clinched an astonishing six, tying with mega superstar Taylor Swift. But Musgraves wasn’t glued to the television with the volume up high … because she was in bed.
The ‘Merry Go ‘Round’ singer was a little, uh, under the weather after partying with friends the night before, so she slept through the reveal. So when her producer, Shane McAnally, called her with the big news, Musgraves didn’t exactly jump up and down.
“I was like, ‘Hello?’ I was really hungover,” Kacey tells reporters with a laugh (quote via Country Weekly). Even if she wasn’t nursing a hangover, the songstress — known for her cool and collected attitude — probably wouldn’t have waited on the edge of her seat (or bed) waiting for the nominations to drop.
Notes Musgraves, “I was laying in my bed, and I knew that nominations were coming out, but I didn’t know what to expect or whatever. I didn’t have my alarm set to check on anything.”
It was only recently that the singer burst onto the country music scene with her album ‘Same Trailer Different Park,’ which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Chart, but she has already become the one to watch in the industry, garnering respect from esteemed artists such as Dierks Bentley.
This really has been a surreal year for Musgraves, and she’s grateful for it. “It’s mind-blowing to me, and just the things that can happen in a year, you know,” she explains. “I’ve been on some amazing tours and gotten to see a lot of the world. You know, radio’s been really great to me. I just feel very embraced by country, and I think that’s more than I could ask for.”
