Kacey Musgraves’ ‘High Horse’ Music Video Is a Retro Dream [WATCH]
"High Horse" comes off of Musgraves' highly acclaimed third studio album, Golden Hour, which was released in March. The video opens up with Musgraves sitting at her desk in an office, where she and a group of female coworkers keep getting distracted from their work by a group of men intent on annoying everyone around them, talking loudly and throwing piles of money in the air.
Cue a little lighthearted escape: Musgraves enters a deliciously fun dream sequence. In the over-the-top -- in the best way -- fantasy, the country star and her girls head to a karaoke bar, where they begin to belt out the lyrics to "High Horse" while wearing their best disco getups. Never one to miss a great opportunity, Musgraves is seen riding out on a high (white) horse at the end of the music video.
Musgraves tells Beats 1's Zane Lowe that "High Horse," which she wrote with Trent Dabbs and Thomas Schleiter, was "a freaking blast" to create. "We all know that character that is just a little high of themselves; they're just a little bit arrogant," Musgraves explains. "I had this title sitting around for a long time, and I have my own ideas about who it's about. Everyone has that character in their life, and then I got to write it, and, oh my gosh, it is the most fun ever."
Musgraves announced her first leg of European dates for her Oh, What a World Tour in March of 2018, and on Monday (July 16), the singer announced over 20 new North American shows beginning in January of 2019. Tickets for the newly announced dates go on sale to the general public on Friday (July 20) at 10AM local time, but are available for artist pre-sale here.
