Kacey Musgraves Looks To The Cosmos For Inspiration On ‘Golden Hour’

Kacey Musgraves releases her new album, Golden Hour, this Friday (March 30th), and she felt there were many positive powers shining a light on her recording, and she came up with the title of the collection following last year’s total solar eclipse.

“There were several serendipitous moments that really come to mind during the making of this whole record. One of the biggest ones was literally a cosmic event. It was literally on August 21st, which is my birthday, and there we were in the very middle of making this album and the total solar eclipse happened in Nashville, and it darkened all of Nashville. It just felt like this cosmic event that everyone was paying attention to, it kind of stopped time and cast a really beautiful light on Nashville itself on my birthday, my 29th year, which is kind of the golden hour of my young adult life and it just felt very special.”

Kacey co-produced the album with a pair of friends, Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk, with whom she also co-wrote several tracks on the new project.

The Texas native will perform on the Late Show With Stephen ColbertThursday (March 29th) on CBS.

She’s currently on the road with Little Big Town on The Breakers Tour. The next stop on the trek will be April 5th in Minneapolis.
