Kacey Musgraves leads the field with six nominations for tonight’s (Nov. 6) CMA Awards show, and she's facing some pretty stiff competition.

In fact, Kacey is facing herself in the Song of the Year category. She has a nod for her breakout hit, “Merry Go ’Round,” and Kacey also is a co-writer on the Miranda Lambert hit “Mama’s Broken Heart.” But that’s no burden for Kacey.

“How lucky can you get? I mean, some people don’t even get have the chance to have one song heard or cut, let alone two,” she told reporters recently.

“It’s like a huge perspective for me. I mean, just as a songwriter I feel like I’m able to achieve the best of both worlds with having a song that I wrote and got to sing and perform on the radio, and then another artist, a girl that I grew up with 10 miles down the road,” she said.

“To be recognized for the words that came out of my brain, it’s just like, is unreal.”

Kacey’s also up for Female Vocalist, New Artist, Album and Single. The CMA Awards show airs at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
