What East Texan is the Opener for John Mayer’s 2012 Spring Tour? [VIDEO]
Kacey Musgraves stopped by Radio Texas Live last October, and we debuted "Merry Go Round," the song that brought down the house last week at The Ryman in Nashville. Now, she's the sole opening act for one of biggest names in all of music.
Not only was last week Kacey Musgraves' first time to play at The Ryman in Nashville, it was also officially announced that the East Texan will be the sole opener for John Mayer on his 2012 spring tour.

I'll leave y'all with her performance of "Merry Go Round" from The Ryman last week, a performance that concluded with a standing ovation. By the way, the only other artists to receive "standing O's" that day were Lionel Richie, Vince Gill and George Strait.
