    Nashville, TN – Mercury Nashville’s Kacey Musgraves will release her sophomore album, Pageant Material, on June 23rd. The album features her current single “Biscuits,” which is climbing the charts at country radio. Musgraves co-wrote all tracks on Pageant Material and also co-produced with Shane McAnally and Luke Laird.
    “Going back into the studio this time around was really fun and exciting for me because I knew more about myself and my direction,” said Musgraves. “The majority of Pageant Material was recorded live–which was a bit of a departure from “Same Trailer”–and gave it more of a concise, classic sound. All of the incredible musicians were in the same room playing on the entire record, and I think that spirit comes across. The last couple of years have done so much for me, and this project was really affected by that in the best way. There are certain moments lyrically that still hit me hard even after listening so many times. It’s a great glimpse into where my head is from “Same Trailer” to now.”

    Audio / Kacey Musgraves says her single "Biscuits" was a fun way to kick off her sophomore album, Pageant Material.


    Kacey Musgraves (Biscuits-fun way to start album) OC: …the record.  :35
    “It was really hard to pick my first single for this record, because I feel like it’d been a while since I’d said anything and I’ve been one to put out weighty messages or whatever; every song has a message. So, I was like, ‘What am I gonna say next?’ I remember we had listened to everything and gotten most of ’em mixed and had kind of a listening party. I just felt like ‘Biscuits’ was really right. Mostly, it was upbeat. It was fun and just plain country, and it just made no excuses for itself in that way. And I just felt like it would be a fun way to start off the record.”

    Kacey Musgraves’ new single, “Biscuits,” actually came from the same writing session as her ACM-nominated Song of the Year, “Follow Your Arrow.” She wrote the song with pals Shane McAnally and Brandi Clark, and she says it’s one of the most fun she’s ever had writing a song.

    “Biscuits – is one of the most fun songs that I’ve ever gotten to be a part of. It’s funny. It actually started when me and Shane [McAnally] and Brandi Clark were writing ‘Follow Your Arrow,’ and she threw it out as a line, I think. I think it was Brandi. She said, ‘How ‘bout ‘Mind Your Own Biscuits?’ And we were like, of course, slayed, because everything she says is ridiculously amazing,” says the Texas native. “We were like, ‘Okay, that has to be its own song. It has to have its own idea.’ So, we saved it and months later kind of came back to it, and really we just went for, we really went for just all-out country on this song.”

    “Biscuits” is the first single from Kacey’s forthcoming album, due out later this year.

    Kacey is nominated for ACM Female Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year for “Follow Your Arrow.” The 50th Annual ACM Awards, hosted by Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton, will be broadcast live from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas at 8pm ET on CBS.

    Kacey Musgraves is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year for “Follow Your Arrow” at this year’s ACM Awards. She is one of a handful of country music females garnering acclaim and getting attention from fans, critics and industry insiders. The Texas native is proud to be among the women – past and present – in country music.

    “I’m so excited to be part of the women in country music movement,” says Kacey. “I mean, I look at people like Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton, songwriters who were sassy and intelligent and beautiful and also intelligent and humorous. They inspired me, and if I can be at all any part of that in carrying that on, that’s just the icing on the cake for me, and I feel like I’ve done my job.”

    Kacey and her precious three-legged pup Pearl, are featured in the latest issue of People magazine.

    Kacey is currently making her way up the country charts with her latest single, “Biscuits.”
