This is the great thing about entertainment today -- if someone doesn't want to take a chance on you, you can take a chance on yourself. Kacey Musgraves is proof. 

Kacey Musgraves is a country music artist who self-released three albums. She could have tossed in the towel after any one of the self-published records but just kept pushing. Those albums led to an audition, and eventual appearance, on the fifth season of 'Nashville Star' in 2007. She placed seventh that season, which isn't bad, but doesn't usually make a person a household name.

In 2012, Musgraves was nominated for four awards at the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year. Her fourth studio album, 'Same Trailer Different Park', debuted at #2. This summer, she toured with Little Big Town and Kenny Chesney.

Just how big of a country star is Musgraves? She has her own Oreo commercial! We want to make her the middle of our Oreo.
