Kacey Musgraves Announces Fall Headlining Tour
Kacey Musgraves has revealed the dates for an upcoming headlining tour in the fall.
The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter will kick off a 10-date fall tour in Tulsa, Okla. on Sept. 25, and wrap things up in Savannah, Ga. on Oct. 19. John and Jacob will join Musgraves as the special guest for the trek, which is called Same Tour Different Trailer.
The news comes during an exciting time for Musgraves, who just received her first-ever gold and platinum certifications from the RIAA last week. Her major label debut album, 'Same Trailer Different Park,' was certified gold for selling 500,000 units, as was her genre-challenging single, 'Follow Your Arrow.' The lead single from the album, 'Merry Go 'Round,' was certified platinum for selling one million units.
Musgraves has performed in huge arenas, opening for Kenny Chesney and on Katy Perry's Prismatic World Tour. Her headlining trek will focus on more intimate venues. She'll also likely work on songs for her follow-up to 'Same Trailer Different Park,' which won a Grammy for Best Country Album and helped Musgraves win New Artist of the Year at the CMA Awards.
"Being away from family and friends is an unfortunate part of this, but it's also inspiring because it causes me to think," she tells Rolling Stone. "I reserve time when I can to write here and there. It's important to keep the creative vein flowing. I’ve got a good handful that I’m really excited about …. They’re the same kind of simple [songs] -- all of my favorite parts of traditional country music are, with fresh, blunt ideas.”
Musgraves has already been playing one song from the upcoming album, 'The Trailer Song,' live. She wrote the song with Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally, with whom she also wrote Miranda Lambert's hit, 'Mama's Broken Heart.'
Tickets for the upcoming tour dates will go on sale Aug. 15, but there will be a pre-sale via Musgraves' website beginning Tuesday (Aug. 12).
