Mercury Nashville recording artist Kacey Musgraves will release the follow-up album to her Gold-certified debut Same Trailer, Different Park on June 23. The title of the new project is Pageant Material. Musgraves co-produces with Shane McAnally and Luke Laird, and has co-written all 13 tracks as well.
"Going back into the studio this time around was really fun and exciting for me because I knew more about myself and my direction," said Musgraves. "The majority of Pageant Material was recorded live, which was a bit of a departure from "Same Trailer,"and gave it more of a concise, classic sound. All of the incredible musicians were in the same room playing on the entire record, and I think that spirit comes across. The last couple of years have done so much for me, and this project was really affected by that in the best way. There are certain moments lyrically that still hit me hard even after listening so many times. It's a great glimpse into where my head is from "Same Trailer" to now."
