Kacey Musgraves, 2013
Biggest Hit in 2013: "Merry Go Round"
Other CMA Wins: none (yet)
Blessing: Grammy voters, no doubt, watch the CMA Awards. Musgraves went on to win the Grammy for Country Album of the Year for her debut LP, Same Trailer Different Park, and for Country Song of the Year for "Merry Go Round." Her album was released in March of 2013 but went back to Number One on the country albums charts nearly a year later.
