Kacey Musgraves Receives Big Surprise From Her Hometown
Those who believe in the old saying "you can't go back home" obviously aren't from Mineola, Texas — otherwise known as the birthplace of Kacey Musgraves.
The country singer made her way back home to play a benefit concert last week in support of art and music programs in the Wood County School System. To show their appreciation, the community and their classic car club fixed up her old '67 Mustang and made it as good as new.
“I cannot believe what just happened – as a thank you for doing my Hometown Hang benefit the Lake Country Classic Car Club and the City of Mineola, TX SURPRISED me and fixed up my old ’67 Mustang. Shined it up and got it runnin’ again,” the "Dime Store Cowgirl" singer captioned an Instagram post, explaining the ordeal.
"Very emotional moment for me. It was a high school project my Dad and I worked on and I haven’t been able to drive it for about 7 years. THANK YOU SO MUCH!”
That's not all Mineola offered Musgraves upon her homecoming. She was also presented with the key to the city. Now we know why she so wholeheartedly sings "I still call my hometown home."
The benefit show took place just a few days after Musgraves brought the crowd to their feet at the Ryman Auditorium in her current home of Nashville, Tenn. The back-to-back shows ere a part of her current Country & Western Rhinestone Revue Tour, which will run through November in support of her current album, Pageant Material.
