Kacey Musgraves is baking up a batch of “Biscuits” for country radio. Her new single will be fans’ first taste of new music from her sophomore album for Mercury Records Nashville. Her debut, Same Trailer Different Park, won the Grammy for Best Country Album.

"I'm very proud to be kickin' things off with 'Biscuits'! I think it's the perfect preview to the record we had SO much fun making,” Kacey says. “The sound of this song represents so many of the things I love about country music. And be warned -- it may inspire a square dance,” she jokes.

Kacey co-wrote “Biscuits” with frequent collaborators Shane McAnally and Best New Artist Grammy nominee Brandy Clark. You should start hearing it on the radio around the middle of March.

Don’t be surprised if you see some of Miranda Lambert’s influence when Christina Aguilera steps into her upcoming guest role on Nashville.

"Miranda is no joke,” Christina told Seth Myers Wednesday on NBC’s Late Night. “She's awesome. I've become such a huge fan… Honestly, if I were a country singer, I’d probably be her. She’s awesome. She's really awesome. I've got to give her kudos!"

Christina will play a pop star trying to cross over into country on the ABC show set in Music City. She’s hoping the new role will step up her cred with country contestants when she’s competing against Miranda's husband Blake Shelton to secure contestants for her team on The Voice.

"I'll be able to have something under my belt to get certain steals for these country artists," she says. "I'll be like 'Well, I'm actually on the show Nashville, recording in Nashville.'"

You can catch Nashville Wednesdays at 10 p.m. Eastern time on ABC.  The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
