Kacey Musgraves Gives A Little Something Extra to Wow The Crowd REVIEW+PHOTOS: Kacey Musgraves at Palomino Festival 7/9/22
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“…The last performance to close out the day-long festival was the current queen of country music, the lovely Kacey Musgraves. With this performance being the last one of her “Star-Crossed: Unveiled” world tour, Kacey gave her fans a solid 14-song set that included most of hits (“Rainbow”, “Butterflies”, “Slow Burn”, “Golden Hour”, “High Horse” and “justified” among others. She also included her cover of Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5”, which she had also performed earlier in the year at her performance at Crypto.com Arena.
But perhaps the highlight of her performance, was when she invited Willie Nelson on stage to duet his staple “On The Road Again”. With her actual grandfather in the audience, she joked that she was bringing out her “other grandpa from Texas” onto the stage.
This wasn’t the first time that Willie has performed live with Kacey, but this duet performance of a Willie Nelson classic felt like a once-in-a-lifetime, probably never gonna happen again, moment. Sure, Willie still plays “On The Road Again” during his sets, but I can’t see when another opportunity to have Kacey and Willie perform that song again will happen unless it’s at an awards show or something of that nature. Honestly, that moment alone was worth the price of admission.
Kacey’s set was virtually flawless. Having toured and performed so much over the past year, her voice and her band hit every song with the kind of professional ease you’d expect a 6x Grammy Award winner to deliver, and it was the perfect conclusion to a fantastic day of music at Palomino Festival…”
