Did you know that our quaint little community of Mineola, Texas is the hometown to one of country music’s biggest stars?
Although Kacey Musgraves was born in Golden, Texas, just a few miles north of Mineola, she attended high school in Mineola. So we hereby claim her as our “hometown girl!”
Kacey’s story is nothing short of amazing. According to Wikipedia, she “has won six Grammy Awards (including the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 2019), six Country Music Association Awards, and three Academy of Country Music Awards. Musgraves self-released three solo albums and one more as Texas Two Bits, before appearing on the fifth season of the USA Network’s singing competition Nashville Star in 2007, where she placed seventh.”
“Musgraves later signed to Mercury Nashville in 2012 and released her critically acclaimed debut album Same Trailer Different Park in 2013. Her debut won the Grammy Award for Best Country Album. The album’s lead single, “Merry Go ‘Round,” won her the Grammy Award for Best Country Song. It also featured the platinum-certified single, “Follow Your Arrow,” which won her the Country Music Association Award for Song of the Year. In 2015, Musgraves released her second studio album, Pageant Material (2015). Her sophomore effort also received critical acclaim and a Best Country Album Grammy nomination. Musgraves also released a Christmas-themed album, A Very Kacey Christmas, in 2016.”
“Her fourth studio album, Golden Hour (2018), was released to widespread critical acclaim and won all four of its nominated Grammy Awards categories, including Album of the Year and Best Country Album. The album’s first two singles, “Butterflies” and “Space Cowboy,” won Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song, respectively. Golden Hour also won the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association Award for Album of the Year, making Musgraves only the fifth artist to win all three major Album of the Year (Grammy, CMA, and ACM) awards for the same album, as well as the second artist to win the Grammy, CMA, ACM, and all-genre Grammy Album of the Year.”
