Kacey Musgraves is holding a special concert in her hometown to raise money for a cause that’s near and dear to her heart.
The musician will hold her first-ever “Hometown Hang” in Mineola, Texas on Sept. 26. Musgraves created the charity event to help give back to the east Texas community that helped her become the rising country star she is today.
“I’m so excited to be coming back to my hometown to play and help in keeping music and art programs alive in schools!” Musgraves said in a statement. “I was lucky to have a solid support system as a kid and I can only hope that a fun event like this will be a small step for someone else.”
Hometown Hang will also feature performances by Wade Bowen and John and Jacob, foo from local vendors and a live auction. Proceeds from the event will go toward art and music programs in the local Wood County school system. According to KLTV, Musgraves graduated from Mineola High School in 2006, where she was named “Most Likely to Become Famous”.
John DeFoore, Musgraves’ former music instructor, saw her potential early on in her teenage years.
“It’s always nice to see someone make it because mainly, not because of me, because that’s what their dream was,” he told KLTV. “And if I feel like if I gave a small part in helping them obtain their dream then, that’s fantastic.”
Tickets for Kacey Musgraves’ Hometown Hang are currently on sale and can be purchased at her official website.
