Kacey Musgraves is poised to enter the Top 10 on the country charts with her debut single “Merry Go ‘Round,” just earned her first ACM Awards nominations (for Female Vocalist, Music Video and New Female Vocalist of the Year), has appeared on a few national television shows (most recently Late Night With Jimmy Fallon) and has been on the road with Little Big Town on their Tornado Tour, picking up a bunch of fans as she goes. One of those fans is Eric Church, who seems to like and respect everything about the Texas songstress, especially the fact that her songs are so “musical.”

“I like what she listens to. I like her taste in music,” raves Eric. “It just sounds different. It sounds fresh for country radio. It sounds like she’s in her spot already, and I think that’s the key as a new artist – you’ve got to find your lane, you’ve got to find your spot and don’t get out of it, and I think she’s off to at least a great start at being able to do that.”

The two will hit the road with Kenny Chesney on the No Shoes Nation Tour next month. Church will play many of the stadium dates on the trek, which kicks off March 16th in Tampa, Florida.
