Kacey Musgraves was named Female Vocalist of the Year during last night’s CMA Awards. She has been nominated for the award six times (2013-2016, 2018, 2019), and this is her first win in the category.
“Words can’t express just how meaningful and truly unbelievable this past couple of years have been,” she said during her acceptance speech. “But ultimately I just want to say that I feel that the female creative spirit and female energy is really needed right now, it’s really important, I feel like it’s something that Earth needs.”
Kacey, who performed “Rainbow Connection” with the iconic Willie Nelson during the ceremony, also took home the award for Music Video of the Year for “Rainbow.”
Kacey Musgraves (CMA Female win) OC: …the beginning. :21
“I think it does mean something a little bit extra special considering there are so many women in here that paved the way for me to be able to speak my mind and do the things that I do. That being said I think that every year in country music females should be equally as celebrated, because I think the female narrative is really important and it’s been the backbone of country music since the beginning.”
