Kacey Musgraves

I photographed a great new country singer this week. Her name is Kacey Musgraves, and she was the opening act on a three act bill headlined by Lady Antebellum. Because of her Grammy win for Country Music song of the year, she should have been second on the bill! During her 9 song set, she had the audience singing along, and reacting way more than any opening act I have recently seen.

And, I got to leave early and didn’t have to listen to Lady Antebellum!!!
