As a pretty big Kacey Musgraves fan, I’ve had more than a few moments where I’ve thought this is best thing I’ve ever seen or heard— her CMT “Crossroads” performance with Katy Perry, her duet with Miguel, and honestly, the list goes on. Kacey recently announced her third LP (fourth, if you count the Christmas album), Golden Hour, and I did a backflip. And as excited as I am for the new album, I’m more excited by the fact that Kacey somehow found her way to this wireless karaoke mic.
When Kacey first got the mic she took us on quite the musical journey with dozens of hits and informed everyone that you could, in fact, be addicted to karaoke. She told us she was addicted. And I’m here for that addiction.
After taking a couple of hours off due to food poisoning, Kacey rallied back with a few A capella numbers– “Wayfaring Stranger,” “Always On My Mind” and my personal favorite, “Ave Maria.”
As great as those tunes were, Kacey really returned to her true karaoke form when she went ham on Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On.” (The video is out of order, but it doesn’t matter, the brilliance is still there.)
If Kacey ever gets over her karaoke addiction it’ll be one of the sadder days in country music history.
