Kacey Musgraves has been named to TIME Magazine’s 2022 Women of the Year list, which highlights 12 extraordinary leaders working toward a more equal world.
In September 2021, Musgraves released her highly anticipated fourth studio album, Star-Crossed. Through the record, the 6x Grammy-winning singer-songwriter opened up about her recent divorce and the journey she’s been on since the release of her blockbuster album, Golden Hour, in 2018. Star-Crossed debuted at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Country Albums and No. 3 on the Billboard 200.
