Kacey Musgraves Is Working on a Christmas Album
Sure, it's several months from Christmas, but country fans can already start making a wish list because Kacey Musgraves is recording a Christmas album.
The songstress posted the news on Instagram, saying, "It might be June but we're gettin' festive! Be expecting a very special Christmas record for all you little elves comin' out just in time to stuff your stockings! Put it on your lists! 🎄Thats all for now!"
She shows off her holiday spirit in the photo: wearing a green shirt, red bow necklace and surrounded by twinkling lights, Musgraves is clearly celebrating Christmas in June.
Musgraves' holiday album follows up her two records Same Trailer Different Park and Pageant Material.
The singer has mentioned wanting to branch out, and she said a year ago that her next album would be "completely different." She added, "I don’t think this one [Pageant Material] is very far off from Different Trailer. I would really like to write to a concept next time. I’d really like to do a reggae record or a surf-rock record.”
In between Pageant Material and her third studio record is the Christmas project, and it puts her into new territory. There's no word on which songs will be on the record -- will it be quirkier holiday tunes or more traditional? Her lips are sealed for now.
The "Biscuits" singer will make the festival rounds this summer. She is also set for the 2016 Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival in September and the ACL Music Festival. She'll also open for George Strait's Las Vegas shows this fall. For more information on Musgraves' tour schedule, visit her official website.
