Kacey Musgraves, "Follow Your Arrow" singer began songwriting at the age of 8, writing a song called "Notice Me" for her elementary school graduation. Musgraves self-released three albums before appearing on the fifth season of Nashville Star in 2007, where she came seventh. In 2008, she recorded two singles for Triple Pop in Austin, Texas - marking her breakthrough to fame.

Born on August 21, 1988, when she was 12 years old, Musgraves took guitar lessons from a musician named John DeFoore, which she later described as "one of the most important things that ever happened to me." It wasn't long before her family later funded her first self-released album and the singer-songwriter shot into the spotlight.
