The critic’s response to
Same Trailer Different Park has been overwhelming:

“Same Trailer Different
Park proves Musgraves is for real. The album showcases a songwriting voice you
won’t hear anywhere else in pop: young, female, downwardly mobile, fiercely
witty.” Artist to Watch «««« – Rolling
Stone.

“Musgraves’ voice, which
rides atop sturdy melodies and mostly acoustic arrangements, is pretty and
clear, but usally unsentimental. Her Trailer is clearly worth hitching
onto.” Album of the Week, 3 ½ Stars out of 4 – USA
Today

“This buzzy country
singer knocks it out of the trailer park with tunes like ‘Merry Go ‘Round’ that
put a fresh spin on the usual Nashville terrain.” 3 ½ Stars out of 4 –
People

“On her [Musgraves]
confident, melodic major-label debut, Musgraves' vocals are pleasingly agile,
but what Same Trailer Different Park continually showcases is her writing
prowess.” Grade A- – Entertainment Weekly 

“Pop needs this dose of the everyday again, and Musgraves, with her
unpretentious voice — which makes you utterly trust her and her commitment to
bringing complicated emotions into the light — is bringing it.” –
NPR

“Well, country music can
thank Kacey Musgraves for finding her way, through smart lyrics, arrangements
free of bluster and a tone that's all her own on her debut major label release,
‘Same Trailer Different Park.’” - Associated
Press
 

“Her [Musgraves] major
label debut, which moves from country waltz to roadhouse blues, from rootsy
singer-songwriter narratives to irresistible country pop, follows its own
relentless arrow throughout, and the result is one of the most fully-formed,
arresting debuts Nashville’s seen in years.” 4.5 out of 5 Stars –
American Songwriter

“Her
magnificent new album ‘Same Trailer, Different
Park,’ contains some of the most straightforward
storytelling you could ever ask of a dozen country tunes.” – Washington
Post
