If you haven’t listened to Kacey Musgraves’ “Space Cowboy” yet, you’re doing yourself and all of your friends and family a huge disservice. It’s one of two songs Kacey released off her upcoming Golden Hour album and it might be one of the best songs she’s ever written (with Shane McAnally and Luke Laird, of course).
After selling out Radio City Music Hall with Little Big Town on The Breakers Tour, Kacey took her insane Juicy Couture sequined/sparkly/rhinestone-encrusted jumpsuit to “The Tonight Show” and was absolute perfection.
Kacey’s been performing “Space Cowboy” live the last few weeks, but this performance was different. It was like a bunch of space cowboys (which, the song is not about) were floating around like angels spurring her on.
It’s early, but this is my early favorite for a GRAMMY nomination and CMA Song of the Year. Ain’t no sense in closing the gate or trying to convince me otherwise right now.
