Kacey Musgraves Launches Album, Announces Tour

Kacey-Musgraves-Pageant-MaterialKacey Musgraves’ highly-touted sophomore release Pageant Material hits retailers today (June 23), and she’s celebrating release day with appearances on Good Morning America, and an in-store signing and performance at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade, followed by an appearance on The View tomorrow (June 24). 

Today she also revealed dates for The Kacey Musgraves Country & Western Rhinestone Revue, beginning in Atlanta Aug. 27 and wrapping in Amsterdam Nov. 22. The tour will visit iconic venues including The Wiltern, Ryman Auditorium, The Apollo Theatre, and Royal Albert Hall. See a complete listing of dates below.

Musgraves co-wrote every song on the Mercury Nashville project and co-produced it with cowriters Shane McAnally and Luke Laird. The Texan says she wanted the music to really represent who she is. “I really wanted this album to have a classic feel, like a lot of the records I know and love” says Musgraves. “I intended on it having a laid-back yet lush, slightly kitschy, western vibe. And most of all, I wanted it to feel like me.”

Musgraves helped industry members get into the pageant spirit for the release of her album earlier this month at a fun-filled bash at PLAY in Nashville, where she handed out tiaras and sashes to partygoers, and drag queens lip synched songs from Pageant Material on a runway.
