The Kacey Musgraves Country & Western Rhinestone Revue delighted fans last night (Sept. 24) during the second show of a two-night stand at Nashville’s iconic Ryman Auditorium.
Opening band Sugar & The Hi-Lows left the audience in a lively mood for Musgraves, who opened with the title track of her latest album Pageant Material, garnering thunderous applause from the sold-out crowd.
With a sparkling backdrop behind her and a large disco ball above, Musgraves quickly segued into other tunes pulling from both her latest release and her debut album Same Trailer Different Park.
She peppered the set with a few cover songs including a cool rhythmic rendition of TLC‘s “No Scrubs” and Miranda Lambert‘s “Mama’s Broken Heart,” which Musgraves co-wrote with Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally.
After her performance of “Dime Store Cowgirl,” a huge group of excited fans swarmed to the front of the stage. It even caught the songstress by surprise and she welcomed the enthusiastic throng, before continuing with several more tunes. When her stellar band took a break, she sang a well-received acoustic version of “Merry Go ‘Round.”
After a quick costume change, Musgraves was back on stage performing “High Time” and “Blowin’ Smoke.” She received a standing ovation as soon as she started the first line of “Follow Your Arrow,” and fans thoroughly enjoyed having a sing-along.
Next up, Musgraves performed Nancy Sinatra‘s sassy “These Boots Are Made For Walkin.'” She ended the fun night with an a cappella version of “Happy Trails,” the tune made famous by being used during the end credits of the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans TV shows.
That was our cue to giddy up and go.
