Kacey Musgraves dropped her new album, Golden Hour, on March 30, and it received rave reviews from some of her peers, including Little Big Town, Brothers Osborne, Brandy Clark and more.
The new 13-song offering follows Kacey’s 2013 debut album, Same Trailer Different Park, and her 2015 sophomore album, Pageant Material, both of which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. Kacey co-wrote and co-produced the new album with Ian Fitchuk and Daniel Tashian.
“I had a different mindset this time, which was feeling rather than thinking—leading heart first,” says Kacey.
Check out what Kacey’s music-making colleagues had to say about the new album via social media.

Long time @KaceyMusgraves fan and was told I wouldn’t like her new album because it was “different”. But it turns out that’s WHY I like it. Take a listen with an open mind. It’s great.

Been having a real hard time finding something new to get into, but then comes this new @KaceyMusgraves album like a cool breeze on a sweltering hot day. It’s awesome to find a body of work that executes all the simplest things so perfectly these days. No trying here. 👌
