Kacey Musgraves Releases ‘Biscuits’ Music Video
The singer is taking what's old and making it new again, channeling vintage variety shows to bring fans a quirky, brightly colored video that you can't help but smile at. Musgraves tells Buzzfeed Music that she wanted the video to look like “Hee Haw meets Pee Wee’s Playhouse meets Wes Anderson,” and it seems like she's hit the nail on the head.
The video features a few special scenes for fans, including a mustachio'd Musgraves dressed as a farmer and some time spent singing with Cledus Guthrie, a fiddle-playing Muppet.
"[The video] is just plum country fun," Musgraves says.
"Biscuits" is the lead single off of Musgraves' hotly anticipated sophomore album, Pageant Material, which is set for release on June 23. The "Follow Your Arrow" singer says that "Biscuits" isn't the only part of the project that was inspired by the past -- the entire album takes influences from the days of classic country.
“Pageant Material was really inspired by a lot of the classic records and artists I love: Glen Campbell, Jim Croce, Bobbie Gentry, Marty Robbins, Roger Miller, Charley Pride. Records that set an even tone throughout are ones that I usually gravitate towards,” Musgraves says. "So recording this record was really fun and exciting for me because I knew exactly what I wanted to go for. Consistently touring and playing with my great band has made me a better singer and player and has helped me define my vision. So there was less guesswork this time around.”
