Kacey Musgraves Explains Miranda Lambert CMAs Frown: "My Face Just Looks That Way"
What catfight? It's been two months, but singer Kacey Musgraves has finally explained why she appeared to be frowning during Miranda Lambert's Country Music Association Awards acceptance speech last November.
"Sometimes my face just looks that way and it doesn't really mean anything," Musgraves told E!'s Giuliana Rancic on the red carpet at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday night. "I was listening, and just being a new artist I'm not used to the camera staying on you for five minutes or whatever."
On Nov. 6, Lambert, 30, beat out the 25-year-old country newcomer in the Best Female Vocalist category. And although Blake Shelton's leading lady thanked Musgraves in her speech, the cameras told a different story. The "Follow Your Arrow" singer appeared to be frowning when cameras panned to her in the audience. (The Texas native, who hails from the same town as Lambert, previously co-wrote Lambert's hit "Mama's Broken Heart" in 2013.)

"I could learn to smile a little bit," the "Follow Your Arrow" singer added to Rancic at the Staples Center in L.A. "There was no [ill] intention in that at all."
Despite the shady moment, Musgrave did end up taking home a trophy herself. The country crooner couldn't be happier as she accepted the award for Best New Artist later that evening. As for the Grammys, the two powerhouses will be pitted against each other once again in the Best Country Song category.
