Kacey Musgraves will be accepting the innovator award at the 13th annual Women in Music event on Dec. 6 in New York City, and ahead of the big night, Billboard sat down with the singer to reflect upon some childhood memories with her and find out what advice she would give to her younger self.
Given several photographs from her childhood and her early career, Musgraves is first shown a picture of herself as a child in the '90s during a family camping trip. Explaining that she grew up “in the sticks,” Musgraves says that whenever she got bored, her mom would encourage her to ride a bike or write a song or poem, and that’s why she became interested in creating things.
Musgraves is also shown a picture (featuring her with a dog) from the early 2000s, which she reveals was taken by her sister, Kelly Sutton. “My sister liked to take photos,” she explains. “She actually still takes all my photos. She's done all my album covers and she designed them all. I'm kind of imagining this was maybe her trying that out or something back then.”
