Reese Witherspoon girl talk with Kacey Musgraves

REESE WITHERSPOON talked to KACEY MUSGRAVES for her show "Shine On with Reese".  The episode debuts today on DirecTV and AT&T.

"People" has a promo clip that features Kacey answering questions as she drives them around Nashville.  She talked about moving to town equipped with a photo of herself that her sister took . . . and a promo CD that her mom helped put together.

Quote, "I took it to all the publishing companies and I was like, 'Hey, I'm a new voice in town.  If you need a demo singer, I need cash.  I can sing my own harmonies and also these are songs I wrote.'"

It was those songs that helped get her in the door.  Quote, "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.

"It's intimidating [because] there are so many people 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."
