Kacey Musgraves was caught on camera with an unhappy look on her face at this month's CMA Awards when she lost Female Vocalist of the Year to fellow Texan Miranda Lambert, but Kacey insists she was smiling before and after that shot.
She tells Rolling Stone, "As a new artist, I’m still getting used to cameras being on me 24/7, and there’s no way you can be caught smiling at all times. If you know me, sometimes when I’m just sitting there, it looks like I’m not having a good time, but I am!"
Kacey reached out to Miranda to let her know she didn't mean anything by that look, and they both laughed about how the situation has been blown out of proportion.
Kacey adds, "If anyone should be offended, it should be me! I mean, did you see my face? I look like a dumbass. It was a long day. My feet were hurting.”
Looking forward to 2014, Kacey has plans to head out on tour with Lady Antebellum and record the follow-up to her debut album, Same Trailer Different Park. Her current single, "Follow Your Arrow," is now climbing the country chart.
