I had the pleasure of seeing Kacey Musgraves in concert for the first time ever last night in Raleigh, NC! She was amazing. I’ve added pictures from her performance thanks to 947 QDR. Enjoy these in our photogallery!
Kacey Musgraves had a great (and busy) week! The singer nabbed two Grammys last Sunday (Jan. 26) and returned to work on her current tour with Lady Antebellum. The trio surprised the singer with a sweet gift backstage, helping to celebrate the country superstar-in-training and her big wins.
The trio, no stranger to picking up armfuls of Grammys, presented Musgraves with a cake to honor the fact that she took home double Grammy gold. How thoughtful of Lady A to give the new kid on the block a sweet treat! It looks yummy, doesn’t it?
Notice that Dave Haywood, Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley are holding up two fingers, nodding to Musgraves’ statue haul at last week’s ceremony.
Despite the big win, Musgraves didn’t take time off to celebrate. She pretty much got right back to work, performing as an opener on Lady A’s tour.
Musgraves nabbed Grammys for Best Country Album for ‘Same Trailer Different Park’ and Best Country Song for ‘Merry Go ‘Round.’ Congrats again, Kacey!
What awesome news! Kacey will be joining Katy Perry’s North American Prismatic Tour this year. But only for certain dates – read below for the full details.
Katy Perry is adding some high-profile support to the North American dates of her upcoming Prismatic World Tour. While Icona Pop will be opening for the songstress during her UK dates, she’ll be joined in the United States and Canada by Capital Cities, Kacey Musgraves and Tegan & Sara (covering three different regions as the tour moves through North America).
Capital Cities will tour with Perry from June 22 through August 7, covering East Coast shows; Kacey Musgraves joins on August 10 as the tour moves through the midwest and central Canada; then Tegan & Sara come aboard on September 10 as the tour moves down the West Coast and through the South. (Not sure why Canadian electropoppers Tegan & Sara are playing Memphis, Tennessee while country star Musgraves is performing in Calgary, Alberta — but hey! Best not to argue.)
Regardless, it’s a testament to Perry’s exceptional taste — all three artists are critically beloved with rising commercial prominence — and it should make the Prismatic Tour all the more worth seeing.

Kacey is set to headline a show at Barrymore Theatre on February 8th! Read more below.
Following a breakout year in 2013, country singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves will headline a show at the Barrymore Theatre on Saturday, Feb. 8.
Tickets for the show are $23.50 will go on sale Saturday, Jan. 11 at 10 a.m. through the Barrymore Theatre and its outlets along with Ticketmaster and its outlets, by phone at 241-8633, or online at barrymorelive.com or ticketmaster.com.
Musgraves’s “Same Trailer Different Year” rocked the country world with its mix of charismatic country-pop hits and direct, unvarnished looks at small-town blue-collar life. The album hit #1 on the country album charts, garnered four Grammy nominations for Musgraves, and landed on many album-of-the-year lists, including both Rolling Stone and NPR.
NPR’s Ann Powers said, “Pop needs this dose of the everyday again, and Musgraves, with her unpretentious voice — which makes you utterly trust her and her commitment to bringing complicated emotions into the light — is bringing it.”
