“I want you to have a good time tonight. Every single person in here deserves to be in this room. We all have common ground, and I love you guys.” This is how Kacey Musgraves kicks off a recent sold-out show in Atlanta. The crowd is rowdy—clearly some drinks were had by the time Musgraves takes the stage at 9:00 P.M.—but a hush falls over the room as soon as she starts talking. Musgraves, wearing a black jumpsuit and a sequined choker that would feel right at home in Cher’s closet, smiles, then says, “Before we get started, I think everybody needs to turn to their neighbor. Give them a high five really quick.” The audience cheers and whoops, turning enthusiastically to the strangers—or new friends, I should say—around them and throwing up their palms. Musgraves gives her bandmates a high five too, then puts her hands up to signal silence. “All right,” Musgraves continues, her native Texas twang drawing out the vowels, aaal riiight. “Everybody put two middle fingers up in the air.” She laughs and throws a middle finger up, then her other one. Musgraves makes a real show of it, spinning around in a circle and jabbing each toward the audience for emphasis. The fans roar with laughter and cheers. Someone yells, “Yeehaw!” “Now we’re ready.” Click HERE to lear more about Kacey.
