?? It’s officially here! The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show + Soundtrack. Late last fall, I dreamed this idea up one night with my friend and band leader @thekyleryan. He composed and arranged all the music you hear on the show and my actual band played it all in real time. Huge thanks to my entire team. My glam angels @giovannidelgado /@moanilee + my stylist @ecduzit (assisted by @maddielouviere) who fulfilled all my @gucci x Wes Anderson holiday fantasies. Thank you to all the fantastic guests who made time to drop in and lend their talents. Massive thanks to @jwowen, @sandboxent, to @mrbenwinston + Emma Conway, the whole Fullwell Co. @hannahluxdavis , NANA, a THOUSAND other people, and HUGE SPARKLY SUGARPLUM thanks to @amazonprimevideo for granting me the keys to my Christmas dreams! I had so much fun working on every single detail. Link in bio. Hope you all enjoy. Xx . . . Christmas collage made by the talented @mindofbarbara (Spot Nana!)
