Country music singer Kacey Musgraves is getting into the holiday spirit. Details about her first ever holiday album were revealed today in a press release, and you won't have to wait long to get it. That's because Musgraves' A Very Kacey Christmas will be released on Oct. 28.
Kacey Musgraves' first holiday album will feature four brand new holidays songs, which were all co-written by the country singer. The other eight songs on A Very Kacey Christmas are all covers. They are not straight cover songs. Kacey put a unique spin on each one by building new arrangements that fit her style.
One of the original holiday songs is entitled "A Willie Nice Christmas." Just as the title suggests, Willie Nelson is featured on it. Another original song is "Christmas Makes Me Cry," which vocally features soul singer Leon Bridges.
About the album Musgraves said in the press release, “I really wanted to create a whimsical throwback holiday record, one that evokes feelings of nostalgia and simpler times." Musgraves went on to say that she hopes the album can become a holiday classic.
As of now, Musgraves has not released a free stream of any song from A Very Kacey Christmas. She did however post a short video on Facebook that features snippets of songs from the album.
