• KACEY MUSGRAVES EXPLORES NEW SOUNDS AND COLLABORATIONS ON GOLDEN HOUR.

    It’s been slightly more than five years since Kacey Musgraves released her debut album, Same Trailer Different Park (March 19th, 2013). The collection spawned a huge career for the Texas native, resulting in numerous awards (CMA Awards, ACM Awards, Grammys, etc.), as well as fan-favorite tunes – “Merry Go ‘Round,” “Blowin’ Smoke” and “Follow Your Arrow.”

    In some ways, Kacey has changed because of her experiences and travels, as well as falling in love and gaining a husband, however, she explains she hasn’t changed too much creatively. “I’ve always known exactly who I am. I’ve had a strong core about myself in what I’m willing to do and not do, and that has not changed and that will never change. All I’ve ever wanted to do for myself is to work towards achieving total musical freedom, and I’m on my way to doing that. I started doing that when I put out Same Trailer and it was exactly me. It was exactly what I wanted to say, and I’m always going to evolve and change and hopefully grow as an artist.”

    For her latest collection, Golden Hour, she experimented with new sounds and new collaborators. “With Golden Hour, it was natural for me just to explore new sounds and new inspirations. I worked with different songwriters this time, different producers, and it was super refreshing and exciting for me.”

    Kacey is currently exploring Japan (which has been on her bucket list) after playing one of their biggest festivals. You can check out her Instagram for photos and videos of her experience.

    When she returns to the States, she is set to perform at the Bayou Country Superfest 2018 in New Orleans May 27th before embarking on a tour with British pop sensation Harry Styles in Dallas on June 5th.

    Audio / Kacey Musgraves explains how she’s changed…and not changed…since Same Trailer Different Park came out five years ago.

    Kacey Musgraves (5 years since Same Trailer) OC: …for me. 1:01
    “So much has changed since Same Trailer Different Park came out, but I wouldn’t say that I’ve changed too much creatively. I mean I’ve always known exactly who I am. I’ve had a strong core about myself in what I’m willing to do and not do, and that has not changed and that will never change. All I’ve ever wanted to do for myself is to work towards achieving total musical freedom, and I’m on my way to doing that. I started doing that when I put out Same Trailer and it was exactly me. It was exactly what I wanted to say, and I’m always going to evolve and change and hopefully grow as an artist. I mean that’s the point of music, isn’t it? It’s not the point to do the same thing every time. So, with Golden Hour, it was natural for me just to explore new sounds and new inspirations. I worked with different songwriters this time, different producers, and it was super refreshing and exciting for me.”

Watch “Butterflies” here: http://smarturl.it/kmbutterflies 

    “Butterflies” was released to rave reviews, with NPR proclaiming it as “stepping easily beyond any genre category with a sunny sense that this is just where country should be these days.” The track is featured on Kacey’s critically-acclaimed new album Golden Hour, her third #1 debut on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. Golden Hour has been praised by everyone from NPR, Time, The Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Pitchfork, and The FADER, among others, with USA Today declaring “Golden Hour may be 2018’s best album yet,” and The Huffington Post calling it “the work of a self-assured artist breaking the mold instead of the younger version telling us that one day she would.” Kacey has performed music from Golden Hour on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, TODAY, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and she will make her debut on Saturday Night Live next Saturday, May 12th.

    Kacey played Stagecoach festival this past weekend, with Noisey announcing her set “proves she’s the best future country music has” and The Los Angeles Times observing Saturday’s lineup “offered a triumphant set from Kacey Musgraves, who delivered on her early promise and handled her new stature as a soon-to-be headliner with confidence.” Kacey will wrap up her tour with Little Big Town this weekend, and will go on to support Harry Styles on his tour this summer. Kacey will kick off her headlining Oh, What A World: Tour this fall in Europe, with additional global dates to be announced. For more information, visit http://www.kaceymusgraves.com/tour.

    Kacey Musgraves releases the video for “Space Cowboy,” the first visual from her critically-acclaimed #1 album Golden Hour.

Its elegance takes Musgraves beyond the confines of contemporary country.”

    Golden Hour is Kacey’s third #1 debut on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, following the success of Same Trailer Different Park and Pageant Material. The album has been lauded by fans and press alike, with USA Today declaring “’Golden Hour’ may be 2018’s best album yet,” SPIN asserting, “Kacey Musgraves’ pristine Golden Hourmight be a classic,” and Vulture observing “an album of this quality and collectively agreed upon acclaim typically comes once a career for an artist, if it ever comes at all. It’s lightning in a bottle.” Surrounding Golden Hour’s release, Kacey has made high-profile TV appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy FallonThe Late Show with Stephen ColbertTODAY and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Kacey will go on to make her Saturday Night Live debut on May 12th.

  • KACEY MUSGRAVES FELT ‘BUTTERFLIES’ WHEN MEETING HER NOW-HUSBAND.

    Kacey Musgraves wrote her song “Butterflies” about a week after meeting her now-husband, singer-songwriter Ruston Kelly. Rarely will you find a sweet love song on one of Kacey’s albums, but “Butterflies” is a glimpse into Kacey’s heart and mind with what she was going through and feeling following their fateful meeting.

    “It’s actually the first song I wrote after meeting my now-husband,” says Kacey. “Everything from the lyrics down to the production really represents this floaty, dreamy feeling that I got as soon as he came into my life. I wrote this song with Natalie Hemby and Shane McAnally back in 2016 in the Spring when I had gotten off the road and tried to get back to my creative roots of just writing again just to write and explore new ideas. I had just met Ruston, so my world had been completely flipped upside down, so this is a great sonic representation of that.”

    “Butterflies” is from Kacey’s new record, Golden Hour, which also features the songs “Space Cowboy,” “High Horse” and many others.

    Kacey plays the Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California this weekend and has a few more dates on Little Big Town’s The Breakers Tour before heading out on the road with Harry Styles.
