KACEY MUSGRAVES COMES BY HER ARTISTIC TALENT NATURALLY. (AUDIO)    1/21/13

Kacey Musgraves came by her artistic talent naturally. Her parents, sister, grandmother and cousins are all creative, but in different ways. The Texas native’s talent is obviously her penchant for capturing real life in song and music and being a conduit for that message with her voice. Her mother not only taught her to sing harmony, but also is an artist herself. “My mom’s an artist with all different kinds of mediums – paint – but she’s always working on something different. Last time, she had like this huge, life-sized horse that she had made out of driftwood, and it was beautiful,” says Kacey. “My Mee Maw, she’s a soap maker. She makes soap, and they’re beautiful and they smell really good and they’re all-natural. My sister has an Etsy store, and she’s constantly creating something and sewing pillows and taking pictures.” Her parents also own a print shop, which among other things, creates graphic designs for labels, T-shirts and more.

Kacey Musgraves (creative family) OC: …and music. :51
“There’s not any musicians, per se, in my family. I mean, my mom has like a musical ear and can pick stuff out on the mandolin. She kinda taught me to sing harmony. But they’re all very creative in their own right, and it’s weird…my mom’s an artist with all different kinds of mediums – paint – but she’s always working on something different. Last time, she had like this huge, life-sized horse that she had made out of driftwood, and it was beautiful. My Mee Maw, she’s a soap maker. She makes soap, and they’re beautiful and they smell really good and they’re all-natural. My sister has an Etsy store, and she’s constantly creating something and sewing pillows and taking pictures. My dad and my mom have had a print shop for the past 20-plus years, where they do stuff like Kinkos, like faxes and copies, but then they also do graphic design for labels and T-shirts and stuff like that. So, everyone  just kind of has their own, I don’t know what it is. Mine was singing and music.”
