Hear a Sampling of Kacey Musgraves’ ‘A Very Kacey Christmas’ Album
Kacey Musgraves hinted at her Christmas album in June when she posted a festive photo of herself in the studio while she was lit up in Christmas tree lights. Now, the singer has revealed the track listing to her project, as well as the album cover.
A Very Kacey Christmas will be available on Oct. 28. In addition to the musical stylings of Musgraves, the release features Willie Nelson, Leon Bridges and the Quebe Sisters and will include eight holiday favorites and four originals.
"I'm describing it as part western swing sprinkled with bits of classic pop, hazy Hawaiian moments and child-like fun that all comes to nostalgic/melancholy end and ultimately is very 'me,'" Musgraves writes on Instagram. "This was such an enriching musical experience and I can't wait for you to hear it!"
The country singer was inspired by the classic sounds of the '40s, '50s and '60s when cutting her Christmas debut. She recognizes that the holidays aren't completely jolly for everyone, saying, "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 will be available on vinyl on Nov. 18, just in time for the holidays.
