We once included Musgraves in a list piece about country artists that liberals would like, and that’s fair — she’s clearly no right-wing redneck. What she is, is a six-time Grammy winner with three studio albums of original material (plus one obligatory country Christmas album) under her belt. She’s also sharp as a tack with a knowing sense of humor; her critically acclaimed debut album was called Same Trailer Different Park, and the follow up was called Pageant Material. You’ve got to love that. Last year’s Golden Hour won Musgraves four of her Grammys, so she’s in no way slowing down. Poolside opens these two shows, also on Sunday, August 25.
Kacey Musgraves plays with Poolside at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 23 and Sunday, August 25 at the Greek Theatre.
