Industry insiders, media, family and friends gathered at the Country Music Hall of Fame on July 1 for a sneak peek at Kacey Musgraves’ new exhibit.
Officially opening on July 2 and running through June 7, 2020, Kacey Musgraves: All of the Colors explores the musical and personal journey of the six-time Grammy winner, from her upbringing in Texas and her diverse musical influences to her innovative songwriting and award-winning albums.
“I absolutely adore the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum,” says Kacey. “It’s a privilege to have them curate an exhibit that will showcase pieces from moments all the way back to my childhood that are very special to me.”
Kacey Musgraves: All of the Colors features stagewear, handwritten lyrics and personal artifacts, including:
- Tip jar used by Kacey and Alina Tatum when they performed as yodeling duo Texas Two Bits
- Detention notice received for “continuous classroom disruption” during high school
- Manuscript for “Fallin’,” a song written by Kacey with Miranda Lambert
- Manuscript for “Slow Burn,” written by Kacey and the co-producers—Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk—of her recent album, Golden Hour
- Satin dress embellished with sequins, beads, rhinestones and tasseled fringe, designed by Enrique Urbina. Kacey wore the dress at the 2014 Grammy Awards
- Western-inspired black Atelier Versace pantsuit ensemble with gold-beaded fringe worn by Kacey at the 2018 CMA Awards
In support of the exhibition’s opening, Kacey will participate in a conversation in the museum’s CMA Theater on Saturday, July 6 at 2 p.m., sharing personal stories and memories associated with the exhibit.
