Kacey Musgraves is almost rid of her country newcomer title, and the singer is prepping for what's next. The 'Follow Your Arrow' hitmaker is working on her second album, which she plans to make "about the songs."

Musgraves has been busy this summer, traveling and playing her songs for fans. She'll keep up the tour through the fall, but admits that writing while on the road hasn't been easy.

“I’ve written a little,” she tells the Tennessean. “I almost feel like I’m in a bubble sometimes, and every day is different. It’s very hard. But I’ve written some songs that I’m very excited about so far, but nothing has taken shape yet."

But, like all good songwriters, Musgraves knows a way to combat her writer's block -- she'll soon head to her home state of Texas and do some careful, concentrated writing. “We’ll just clear our heads and write and see what happens,” the 'Mama's Broken Heart' songwriter explains.

Musgraves' debut album, 'Same Trailer, Different Park,' earned the songstress a Grammy, which she admits adds a little extra pressure in working on this second album.

“I’m going to go with my gut and make it about the songs,” Musgraves says. “They say you have your whole life to write your first record and influence that, and this time there’s not as much time there for me to be able to do that."

Adds the songstress, "I just need to focus on that I’ve found my stride and I’m doing something that makes sense to me. I’m just going to keep doing that.”
