Q: When will Kacey Musgraves have a new CD? I’m ready! —Russ Bennett, Chino, Calif.
A: Your wait is almost over. The Grammy-winning country singer-songwriter, 26, will release her second CD, Pageant Material, on June 23. The title track pokes fun “at myself for not being up to pageant standards,” says the native of Golden, Texas. “Every year, my hometown has a Golden Sweet Potato Festival and they crown a Little Miss Tater Tot. I only got to compete once. I lost miserably to a girl in a sparkler dress.”
