On the #Road2FarmAid with Kacey Musgraves

#Road2FarmAidWe caught up with Kacey Musgraves a couple days after she was nominated for six Country Music Awards, tying the record for most nominations!

Kacey is nominated for the year’s top female vocalist, new artist, album for her debut "Same Trailer Different Park” and single for her debut single "Merry Go ‘Round.” She has two song of the year nominations, an award that goes to songwriters. One is for co-writing "Merry Go ‘Round” and the other, for co-writing Miranda Lambert’s hit "Mama’s Broken Heart.” And, we’re proud to say, she’s on the Farm Aid 2013 stage! Kacey had time to answer a few questions about her first Farm Aid appearance and what it means to her on the #Road2FarmAid.

FA: How many times have you appeared on a Farm Aid stage? What is the most exciting part about performing at Farm Aid?

KM: This is my first time! I’m excited to be part of such a musically credible and humanely beneficial event!

FA: Why is supporting America’s family farmer an important cause for you?

KM: Pure food can be our best medicine. Who better to support, than those who support us, by supplying the food we were meant to eat?

FA: What do you think the most challenging issue facing family farmers is right now? What advice would you give your fans about what they can do to help family farmers thrive?

KM: Buy locally! Stay away from genetically modified foods!

FA: Tell us about your connection to Farm Aid’s Board Members — Willie, John, Neil and Dave.

KM: I’m so honored to be a part of such a great cause with musicians I’ve looked up to my whole life! Can’t wait for Farm Aid!
