Kacey Musgraves is one of Time‘s Women of the Year.
Though she’s successful now, the male dominated world of music hasn’t always been easy to navigate. She says, “I have been told no a lot in terms of something that I would want to take a creative risk on. I decided I’d rather go down in flames for something I really believe in than present a watered-down version of myself that may make me more money. You have to fight that until you can get to a place where you can have total creative freedom, and I’m getting there.”
