Kacey Musgraves is "Pageant Material" and More

Friday, November 20, 2015

About a month ago, I attended a Kacey Musgraves concert.  The event was a birthday gift that I received and I'd been a little resistant to the idea at first - only because it required a 1.5 hour drive to and from the venue (NYC was sold out so we trekked up to New Haven).  In short, it was well worth it.  Kacey is a queen.

The experience taught me that I am indeed willing to drive that far, if not a bit farther, to see her perform live again.  The lyrics featured in her new album, Pageant Material, are witty and unmistakably relatable - the words flow into each other and accurately reveal depths of human emotion.  There's a reason she is one of today's only critically acclaimed country singers.  She plays acoustic, with five other musicians: one on the dobro, one on a Gibson, a keyboard player, a bassist, and another guitarist.  Scenically, her concert is an experience.  The backdrop is pink and sparkly.  Good vibes all around.
