Kacey Musgraves has come a long way since 2008, when Triple Pop first discovered her in Austin.
When I first met Kacey, she gave me a private solo concert at Momo’s Bar in March of 2008 (above the old Katz’ Deli on 6th street). It was just me, her grandma and the bartender. She was playing for tips.
We all start somewhere.
Kacey doesn’t talk about it, but she got her recording start here in Austin – not in Nashville.
It’s cool to see her now, ten years later, performing as a headliner at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, along with Guns N’ Roses, Mumford & Sons, Childish Gambino, The Cure and Thom Yorke, among so many others.
The 18th annual concert fest in Austin, Texas’ Zilker Park will take place on Oct. 4-6 and again on Oct. 11-13.
