Kacey Musgraves’ debut single “Merry Go ‘Round” has been certified Gold for sales of more than 500,000 units. Co-written by Kacey, Josh Osborne and Shane McAnally, the song is the lead single from her debut album, Same Trailer Different Park, set for release on March 19.
“I’m so thankful for this song,” Kacey said. “A lot of it was inspired by the surroundings that I had growing up, just from being from a tiny little Bible-belt town, conservative. I’m just observing. I don’t want anyone to think with this song that I’m pointing a finger or being cynical. I love ‘Merry Go Round’ so much, and I can’t believe where it is right now. It’s awesome.”
Kacey will perform “Merry Go ‘Round” on NBC’s Today Show on Tuesday, March 19. She’ll also be performing the single this summer while on tour with Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Nation Tour which kicks off March 16 in Tampa.
