For the majority of her career, Kacey Musgraves has long been a torchbearer for a type of down-home, throwback sound that warms country purists’ hearts. For her current tour, that same old-fashioned outlook extends to the stage.
The Kacey Musgraves Country & Western Rhinestone Revue is the name of Musgraves latest collection of live dates, a tour that will see her roll through a series of historic theatres and scenic outdoor venues with a show that aims to capture the spirit of early 20th century revues. The revues of the past were often multi-faceted entertainment spectacles that included skits, music, and dance, usually of a satirical nature. Musgraves’ new act is just that, a polished presentation of colorful backdrops, crisp illuminated western suits, a talent show break, playful ribbing, leftfield cover songs, and a man in a corn suit. Of course, there is also the music, Musgraves’ folksy lyrical musings and nimble arrangements rounding out a show--or, excuse us, revue--that is unlike anything out there.
Watch Musgraves talk about the Country & Western Rhinestone Revue as well as footage from her show at the Bluebird Theater in Denver below.
