Following the release of her latest album Pageant Material, Grammy-winning country superstar Kacey Musgraves has announced a UK tour in November.
The Texas native has earned massive critical acclaim since the release of her stunning album Same Trailer Different Park, including two Grammys at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards (Song of the Year – ‘Merry Go Round’, Best Country Album) and 2014 ACM Album of the Year.
She’s visited the UK several times in the last three years and built up a strong fan base. No less than five songs from her debut album were playlisted by BBC Radio 2. Last September Kacey performed to 50,000 fans at Radio 2’s Festival In A Day in Hyde Park, London, having previously appeared at the Glastonbury Festival in June.
It’s been years since Musgraves lived in Golden, Texas, her childhood home of roughly 600 people, but the whirlwind that followed Same Trailer Different Park and sent Musgraves halfway across the world on tour made her think hard about where she came from. Pageant Material pays tribute to those Bible Belt roots, shining a light on a hometown girl who’s grown up, expanded her worldview and done a lot of living since skipping town. It’s an album about where she’s from and where she’s going; full of autobiographical details that are humorous one minute and heartwarming the next.
