In 2008, Kacey signed with an independent record label called Triple Pop in Austin, Texas. This is where she released two covers “Apologize” and “See You Again.” However her big endeavor into the music industry was going on tour with Lady Antebellum in 2012. She also signed with Mercury Records that year, along with releasing her debut single “Merry Go ‘Round.” Two full albums have been released so far in her early career:

  • Same Trailer, Different Park – 2013
