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."
