By now you've heard Kacey Musgraves' excellent single "Merry Go 'Round," which appears on her new album, Same Trailer Different Park (due out March 19). But did you know that the young singer/songwriter from Texas had an entirely different musical talent when she was a young girl?

"I learned how to yodel. [I] figured out it was something I could do," says Kacey. "From there it kind of became my thing until I got old enough to know it wasn't really resounding with people in my age bracket. It was something that got me attention with older people when I was younger."

Kacey loved the experience of traveling around and yodeling for crowds, of course, but ultimately she had something else in mind. "I wanted to resonate with people my age, so that's when writing clicked on in my brain—realizing I could say something for myself and not just sing other people's songs."

Check out the latest issue of Country Weekly, on stands March 11, for an exclusive interview with Kacey about her new album.
