Kacey celebrated at last night’s show by bringing out Farrah Moan, Monique Heart, and Silky Nutmeg Ganache during her performance of “High Horse,” continuing her tradition of support and love for the drag community following her performance with RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars winners Monét X Change and Trinity the Tuck in LA earlier this year. They were cheered on by Misty Violet, Six, Sparkle Stone, Kornbread Jete, Dani Kay, Kyra Jete, Glen Alen, Barbie’s Addiction, Calypso Jete, Jewels, April Showers, Lolita Colby, Cake Moss, Willamena Caviar, and Hummingbird Meadows in the crowd. The sold-out Oh, What a World Tour: II will continue to see Kacey play the biggest venues of her career, including two nights at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall and her first-ever headlining arena show at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena with special guest Maggie Rogers (see full list of dates below).

    Kacey has toured the globe in support of her critically-acclaimed third studio album Golden Hour, playing headlining shows in North America, the U.K., Europe, Japan, China, New Zealand, and Australia, as well as performing in South Africa at Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100. She’s played music from her GRAMMY Award-winning Album of the Year at festivals ranging from Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Governors Ball to Stage Coach, Bonnaroo, and Outside Lands, and she has been honored at both Billboard’s Women in Music and Variety’s Power of Women.

    Golden Hour was recognized as one of the best albums of 2018, named Apple Music’s Album of the Year and praised by outlets including NPR, Time, The Associated Press, GQ, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Pitchfork, Complex, Stereogum, and Consequence of Sound, among many others. The Associated Press declared Golden Hour “a piercing, soulful album where Musgraves’ gliding vocals treat each song like a mini masterpiece,” and NPR observed, “Musgraves’ latest work is uniting contemporary perspectives, intimate expression and awareness of writerly lineage in a way that nobody in her space quite has before.” V raves, “Musgraves has become America’s most buzzed-about country star,” and following the first leg of her Oh, What a World: Tour, Variety predicted, “it’s hard to imagine that within the next couple of years Kacey Musgraves won’t be one of the biggest stars in music.”

    Kacey Musgraves had a chance for reflection, emotion and gratitude when her exhibit, All the Colors, opened at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The display features detention slips from school, song lyrics, baby photos, senior yearbook, outfits, light up boots and so much more of her storied life and career.

    For the Golden, Texas native, it was emotional going through the items featured in the exhibit.

    “I’m very proud of my story and where I am right now,” says Kacey. “Something that I try really hard to work at is being present in the moment, and there’s so many beautiful things happening all the time, and I don’t think that a human really knows how to do that, how to be good at that. So, I didn’t think it would make me super-emotional – iI think it takes a lot for me to do that – but to see everything laid out in a physical sense, a timeline, it really healthy and beautiful thing for me because there’s so much that you forget and you just, I’m somebody who gets really excited about what’s in front of me and then I check it off and I move on to the next thing. It’s fun for me to do that, but there’s a lot that gets lost in the blur of all of the busyness, and but there’s a lot to be celebrated and a lot to be remembered. So, it’s actually really beautiful and really gratifying, and I’m really grateful for the opportunity to share those things.”

    The exhibit runs through June 7th, 2020, and in support of the exhibition, she will participate in a conversation at the CMHOF Saturday (July 6th).
