Kacey Musgraves' big wins at Sunday's Grammy Awards felt like a win for all of Texas. The country singer, who was born in Golden and graduated from high school in Mineola, took home four trophies, including album of the year, for "Golden Hour." That tied her with Childish Gambino for the most awards of the night; the album of the year prize made her the first country artist to nab that honor since Taylor Swift in 2010.
Musgraves' Texas roots also stretch across the state to Austin. In addition to her friendship with Willie Nelson — the pair have recorded a few tracks together, and Musgraves framed a marijuana joint Nelson gave her — the "Butterflies" singer once lived in the Live Music Capital of the World. She mentioned her former residence during a 2016 Austin City Limits Music Festival set, even giving a shout-out to the Riata Trace apartment complex. According to Texas Monthly, Musgraves moved to Austin after graduating from high school and kicked off her music career, playing gigs at Momo's and Threadgill's and sometimes covering Nelson's classics, in addition to playing her own material.
Speaking of Nelson: The country legend also picked up a Grammy on Sunday, the best traditional pop vocal album award for "My Way," a collection of Frank Sinatra covers.
