Multi-Grammy Award Winner Kacey Musgraves to Headline the Boys & Girls Clubs Annual Kids Night Out Event April 25
Winning many music awards and breaking sales records, Musgraves has easily become one of the industry’s hottest singers crossing several music genres
Multi-Grammy award winner, Kacey Musgraves, is set to headline the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City’s 2020 Kids Night Out event at the Overland Park Convention Center Saturday, April 25.
Presented by CommunityAmerica Credit Union and Veracity, the 2020 Kids Night Out event will raise funds to support eight area Boys & Girls Clubs serving nearly 1,000 youth each day in Metropolitan Kansas City.
“Our annual Kids Night Out event is known around the metro as one of the best charity events in the Greater Kansas City area and beyond because of the incredible entertainment we feature each year,” said Dr. Dred Scott, President and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City. “We bring well-known celebrities and top performers to Kansas City to inspire hope and create opportunities for thousands of young people served by our Clubs.”
With her win for Album of the Year at the 2019 Grammys, celebrated country singer Kacey Musgraves is taking the music industry by storm, and not just the country music scene. Her spirit, style and songwriting abilities bring a devoted and diverse fan base to what once was thought of as a traditional format.
She released her third album, Golden Hour in 2018, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart – her third time debuting at the number-one slot. Last year, Musgraves was the third artist to ever take home Album of the Year at the three big music awards: Grammy Awards; Country Music Association Awards and Academy of Country Music Awards.
Following tours with Little Big Town, Katy Perry and Harry Styles, Musgraves toured the world with sold-out shows in North America, the U.K., Europe, Japan, China and Australia. She was the first female country artist to play Coachella and continues to be a huge draw on the festival circuit with performances at Bonnaroo, Lallapalooza, Newport Folk Festival and more.
Thirty-one-year-old Musgraves was born in Golden, Texas, and sang as a child at local concert halls. She met her husband, country singer Ruston Kelly, when they were paired to write for the show, “Nashville.” Today, the couple lives in Nashville.
For more than one hundred years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City has provided youth, ages 5 to 18, a fun and safe environment to learn, play, grow and meet new friends – with a special emphasis on youth from disadvantaged circumstances. From sports, digital arts and media to group activities and tutoring, the Clubs provide caring adult mentors, friendship, and high-impact youth development programs each day during critical non-school hours.
Priority programs for 2020 emphasize academic success, good character, citizenship, and healthy lifestyles projected to reach nearly 1,000 area youth each day. Whether it is learning how an individual can make a difference in his/her community or learning how to swim – the Clubs strive to help youth feel important and put their dreams of a great future within reach.
