In the Oscar winner's latest episode of her new series, she sits down with country favorite Kacy Musgraves!


In the latest episode of Reese Witherspoon’s new series Shine On with Reese, we see the Oscar winning actress hanging out with country star Kacey Mussgraves! In the clip, the two are chatting about Musgraves’ climb to fame and how it took a lot longer than fans may think.


Before she won two GRAMMY Awards and started touring around the world, the country singer was peddling her demo around Nashville. “My little sister took my photo and my mom helped me put this little demo CD together and I had a really chubby face,” Musgraves recalls. “I just took it around to all these publishing companies and I was like, ‘Hey, I’m a new voice in town. If you need a demo singer, I need the cash. I can sing my own harmonies and also these are songs I wrote.’ So I was killing two birds with one stone.”

According to the “Golden Hour” singer, Nashville is definitely the place for any up-and-comer looking to get noticed. “It’s a very word-of-mouth town, you know everybody knows everybody,” Musgraves tells Witherspoon.

While it took a number of years before she would be a household name, working as a songwriter first really helped to build momentum in her career. “I was a songwriter first before being an artist so about a year after being in town was when I got to write for a job. And then I wrote for three years every single day with different people,” says Musgraves. She adds, “It is very intimidating but also because it’s so intimidating and because there are so many people that are in line wanting to do what you want to do, you have no excuse not to be unique and as good as you can be.”
