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

“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

“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 –

“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.” –

“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

“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

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