Kacey Musgraves 

When: Fri., Feb. 13, 8 p.m. 2015

Kacey Musgraves’ ascent can be measured through her resistance to country-music mores. She self-released three albums before appearing on Nashville Star in 2007, and it took her six more years to issue major-label debut, Same Trailer Different Park. That smart, catchy album threads the rustic and sleek extremes of mainstream country; radio-friendly, with a warm finish, it relies on unembellished pop-country songwriting instead of genre-baiting gimmicks. Musgraves’ edge is even sharper than that of Miranda Lambert. “If you ain’t got two kids by 21/you’re probably gonna die alone/at least that’s what tradition told you,” begins “Merry Go Round” before airing out perfunctory religion, drug addiction, marital boredom and stifling conformity. What Lambert dramatizes, Musgraves coolly anatomizes. —Brian Howe
