Happy New Music Friday, country fans!
It’s time to turn your weekday frown upside down because it’s officially the weekend, and we have some bangers for you. So, stir up your cocktail because our favorite country stars just released your go-to happy hour jam!
Coming in first and claiming number one on our New Music Friday playlist is our
“Space Cowgirl,” Kacey Musgraves. While the powerful female vocalist has been off our radar for quite some time, she is back to the country music scene better than ever. In fact, she recently released her most vulnerable project to date, Star-Crossed. To go along with the 15-track collection, the megastar also shared a 50-minute film directed by Bardia Zeinali with the same title. Within each track, Musgraves shares her internal emotions and journey since her divorce from country singer, Ruston Kelly.
“This chapter was a challenge and a thrill. A sword and a gift. A f***plummet and a climb. I somehow put myself back together and along the way made something that hopefully brings you the healing it brought me,” says Kacey on Twitter.
