Multiple Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves has recently released her third studio album Golden Hour (MCA Nashville), which has earned Kacey her third No. 1 debut on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart. The album has been met with critical raves across the board, and has been named one of the best albums of 2018 so far by everyone from NPR, TIME, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, Variety, Complex, Consequence of Sound, Paste, and Stereogum, among others. NPR has observed "she's relaxed into the sound she'd already designed, going deeper beneath its sparkly, vintage-tinted surface and further cultivating her innate commitment to clarity and craft," and Noisey has proclaimed "it's clear that the Texan is still the most talented songwriter in mainstream pop-country." Kacey made her debut on Saturday Night Live performing "High Horse" and "Slow Burn," and has made additional high-profile TV appearances surrounding Golden Hour's release, including The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, TODAY, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and The Late Late Show with James Corden. Following recent tours with both Little Big Town and Harry Styles, Kacey will tour in support of Golden Hour this fall on her headlining Oh, What A World: Tour, kicking off in Europe and including a date at London's legendary Wembley Arena, with dates in the U.S. running from January through March. This year, Kacey headlined C2C: Country to Country Festival, including a sold-out O2 Arena in London, and played the highly-coveted second slot at Stagecoach following Keith Urban. In addition to recent performances at Farm Aid, New Yorker Fest and Music Midtown, Kacey will be playing Global Citizen Festival this fall.
Kacey first received massive critical acclaim and recognition with the 2013 release of her gold-certified debut album Same Trailer Different Park. The album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart, making Kacey the first solo female in 5 years to top the chart with a rookie release and only the seventh to do so in Nielsen SoundScan's 22-year history. Same Trailer Different Park earned Kacey 2 Grammy Awards for Best Country Album and Best Country Song ("Merry Go 'Round"), 2 CMA Awards for "New Artist of the Year" and "Song of the Year" ("Follow Your Arrow"), and an ACM Award for Album of the Year. Kacey's follow-up album Pageant Material was released in 2015, earning Kacey her second No. 1 debut on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and soaring to No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. Kacey has toured extensively with artists including Willie Nelson and Katy Perry, and has sold out headlining dates across the U.S. and at London's iconic Royal Albert Hall.
