Kacey Musgraves Embraces Throwback Country on 2015 Tour

Kacey Musgraves Embraces Throwback Country on 2015 Tour:

On the (sparkly cowboy boot) heels of today's release of her long-awaited Pageant Material LP, Kacey Musgraves has announced the upcoming dates for her upcoming tour, the Kacey Musgraves Country & Western Rhinestone Revue. Kicking off in Atlanta on August 27th, the trek will visit six countries and include such legendary venues as Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa, Oklahoma, New York's Apollo Theater and the Royal Albert Hall in London, before wrapping up in Amsterdam on November 22nd.

Musgraves, who proved to be one of the highlights of the recent Telluride Bluegrass Festival, delivered many of the tracks from her Grammy-winning Same Trailer Different Park LP and supplemented her set with a wide range of covers, from the cowboy classic, "Don't Fence Me In" to tunes by Bob Marley and Nancy Sinatra. Earlier this month, she graced the eclectic Bonnaroo stage, lamenting the fact that country radio had pulled her single, "Biscuits" "off the fucking radio." "I don't know what that means," she told the crowd, adding, "I guess they don't like biscuits." The Texas native's show is certainly a fitting representation of her upcoming tour's moniker, with her gingham dress and light-up cowboy shoes, the band's matching western wear and neon cacti adorning the stage.

The singer's western inspiration stretches all the way back to her early teens, by which time Musgraves had released two locally recorded LPs featuring songs such as "Life of an Old Cowhand" and "Whatever Happened to the Yodelin' Cowgirls?" "I look back now and I'm like, 'Oh, my God, that's so cheesy," she says. "I sound like a chipmunk.' "
