Kacey Musgraves Preps First Christmas Album

A Very Kacey Christmas

Mercury Nashville’s Kacey Musgraves will release her first Christmas album, A Very Kacey Christmas, featuring Leon Bridges, Willie Nelson and The Quebe Sisters, on Oct. 28.

Produced by Musgraves, Misa Arriaga and Kyle Ryan, the album features four original co-writes, as well as covers of eight holiday favorites (full track list below).

“Working on my first Christmas album has been one of the most enriching musical experiences I’ve ever had and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it,” said Musgraves. “I really wanted to create a whimsical throwback holiday record, one that evokes feelings of nostalgia and simpler times. I think that the fine musicians and brains that were a part of this project have helped me create a body of music that can be added to people’s classic collections. There can be a touch of sad feelings and memories during the holiday season for a lot of people so I knew when I went in to write I wanted to include all the emotions this time of year can bring out.”

A Very Kacey Christmas was inspired by Bing Crosby, the Andrew Sisters, Nat King Cole and the classic sounds of the ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s, part Western swing, classic pop, hazy Hawaiian moments and child-like fun, according to Musgraves, “all coming to a nostalgic and melancholy end.”
