Kacey Musgraves hasn’t learned the fine art of losing yet

Kacey Musgraves sad

I think it's an art form being able to look happy while losing an award at a televised show. Kacey Musgraves, unfortunately, hasn't quite mastered that look yet. 

At last night's CMA Awards, Miranda Lambert won the Female Vocalist category, a category that Kacey Musgraves was also nominated for.
