Sweet baby angel Kacey Musgraves is here to remind us all to help our local businesses stay afloat in the midst of the digital age. The country artist got beautiful portraits taken at a small photo studio in Los Angeles's Korea Town called Tom's One Hour Photo, which has been open since 1991. On Wednesday, Kacey spoke about her wonderful experience at the shop in a series of tweets, showing off her photographs taken by owner Tom, as well as photos of the quaint shop.
Aside from promoting Tom’s studio, the star also created an Instagram page for him, found at @tomsonehourphotolab. The page now has over 50,000 followers.

Tom’s son, Nick, has personally reached out to Kacey to thank her, and the heartwarming message made the singer freak out.
