Kacey Musgraves recently gushed that it’s difficult to truly believe “that it’s been TEN YEARS” since she released her iconic album, Same Trailer Different Park. The 12-track project marked the award-winning singer-songwriter’s major-label debut, with unforgettable anthems like “Merry Go ‘Round,” “Follow Your Arrow” and “Blowin’ Smoke,” to name a few.

“Ten years of Same Trailer Different Park. It’s wild how many lives I feel like I’ve lived since then and yet, I still feel exactly like the same 24 year old girl who floated these songs out into the world,” Musgraves wrote in an Instagram caption earlier this month. “Love to all. Thanks for sticking around.”

Musgraves isn’t the only powerhouse country artist who’s marking a decade since releasing some of the most memorable music of their career. Tim McGraw, Pistol Annies, LeAnn Rimes, Willie Nelson, Alan Jackson and tons of other country hitmakers were releasing music around that time.
