Kacey Musgraves Says, “He’s So Rad”

Kacey credits fellow Texan Radney Foster for her move to Nashville.

You know Radney Foster, right? Maybe from his own hits like “Just Call Me Lonesome” and “Nobody Wins.” Or maybe from songs like “Raining on Sunday” and “I’m In,” which he wrote and recorded originally for his See What You Want to See album and which Keith Urban covered.

But for young country stars, he’s also a mentor offering great advice, like he did for newbie Kacey Musgraves while she still lived in Texas.

“He was actually one of the people who really convinced me to move to Nashville, because I met him when I was in Austin,” Kacey tells Country Weekly. “One of the things he told me was, ‘You've got to be present to win.’ And it really struck a chord with me and I decided to move.”

So, aspiring country singers, pack your bags!
