Grade • B+

CD • 2013 has already proved to be rich for first-rate country albums, with superb releases from The Mavericks and Ashley Monroe. The trend continues with Kacey Musgraves, whose major-label debut "Same Trailer Different Park" is not only intriguing vocally but engaging lyrically, with every song co-written by the 24-year-old East Texas native.

Showing the verve that she displayed when writing Miranda Lambert's single "Mama's Broken Heart," Musgraves looks to be on the right path — as long as she keeps the slickness away and continues writing about deferred dreams and the not-so-quiet desperation of women yearning to breathe free.

Don't miss her when she opens for Kenny Chesney this July. —
