My House by Kacey Musgraves

Another national debut released in March of this year, Kacey Musgraves has gained a lot of attention in country music circles. Kacey hails from Texas and made her stage debut and the very young age of 8. She started writing songs a year later, and learned to play the guitar, harmonica and mandolin. She self-released three albums between 2002-2007. In 2007 she was on “Nashville Star”, an American Idol type of competition and garnered some attention even though she placed 7th. She started writing songs for some of the bigger country artists like Miranda Lambert and Martina McBride. This led her to signing a deal with Mercury Records in 2012, and the 2013 release of “Same Trailer Different Park”. Like Ashley, Kacey has shown some strong songwriting skills and has received a lot of positive reviews for her major label debut album. She has a wide-variety of songs on her album, and is a little more modern sounding that Ashley. With 12 songs, she could have probably pared a few songs off of her album but she has many good tracks throughout.
“My House” highlights her voice very well, with one of the more sparse instrumental tracks on her album. Harmonica, guitar, simple percussion and her voice propel the track along. This song kind of reminds me of Kimya Dawson, who you may remember hearing on the “Juno” soundtrack (great movie). A very simple and enjoyable song, with some funny lyrics.
