Kacey Musgraves can add the 2019 CMA International Artist Achievement Award to her ever-expanding trophy case, which has recently been stocked with four Grammy Awards.
The Country Music Association surprised Kacey with the award prior to her performance at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Feb. 27. The award recognizes outstanding achievement by a United States-based artist who has demonstrated the most significant creative growth, development and promotion of the country music industry outside of the United States.
In 2018, Kacey headlined the C2C: Country to Country festival in the U.K., performed at the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, and launched her own international tour. This marks the second time Kacey has received the CMA International Artist Achievement Award, previously winning in 2016.
“Thank you so much to the CMA for honoring me with the International Artist Achievement Award,” said Kacey. “I absolutely love experiencing new cultures and playing overseas.”
