Kacey Musgraves Shines During “Space Cowboy” Performance On Austin City Limits [Watch]


Kacey Musgraves will return to “Austin City Limits” this weekend for a special broadcast on Saturday (Nov. 10), on PBS. The longest-running television concert series will feature the Texas native performing a seven-song set and fans can watch Kacey sing “Space Cowboy” ahead of the show’s premiere.

In a web exclusive video, Kacey shines as she sings the heartbreaking ballad from her latest album, “Golden Hour,” released earlier this year. Soaring pedal steel and stripped down musical accompaniment help to highlight the singer’s emotional vocals alongside the song’s striking lyrics.

A tale of a love that is well over, on “Space Cowboy” Kacey gives her soon-to-be ex the space he’s been wanting. Kacey wrote the track with longtime collaborators Luke Laird and Shane McAnally.

“You can have your space, cowboy / I ain’t gonna fence you in / Go on ride away, in your Silverado / Guess I’ll see you ’round again / I know my place, and it ain’t with you / Sunsets fade, and love does too / Yeah, we had our day in the sun / When a horse wants to run, there ain’t no sense in closing the gate / You can have your space, cowboy,” she sings softly on the chorus.

Kacey is currently overseas as part of her headlining tour, Oh, What A World Tour. She’ll return to the states and kickoff the U.S. leg of the tour on Jan. 9 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Kacey will be making stops in Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, Seattle and Denver, with two dates each in Los Angeles and Austin, and three consecutive nights in Nashville.
