Tom Petty’s music was popular in Musgraves’ home when she was growing up.

“Kacey would listen to whatever we were playing, and then she’d go to her bedroom and write her own songs,” recalls her father Craig. One of her songs, “Notice Me,” was performed at her elementary school graduation! The Musgraves’ saw howmuch Kacey loved music, and the family encouraged both their daughters in music. On weekends, the family took to the road, traveling to the FortWorth Stockyards where both Kacey and her younger sister performed in a children’s group calledCowtown Opry Buckaroos.

“In Texas, every few towns have an opry house. Performers come up on stage and sing old country songs with a live band. I did that every weekend. It got me familiar with being in front of people and working with musicians.”
