Kacey Musgraves is having a big night. She and Zach Bryan won the award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance at the 2024 Grammys for “I Remember Everything,” from Bryan’s self-titled album. Later in the night, after presenting Best Country Album to Lainey Wilson, Musgraves teased new music through a commercial that aired during the telecast.
In the new teaser, Musgrave is riding a horse, laying in a field, and holding a guitar while an unreleased song plays and her website flashes across the screen. Following the link leads to pre-orders for an as-yet-untitled fifth LP. The country and pop star’s last album, Star-Crossed, came out back in 2021.
Though she hasn’t released an album in three years, Musgraves has stayed plenty busy with musical endeavors. She stopped by Sesame Street to sing about her favorite colors; covered Coldplay and Elvis Presley; and sang the 2023 Grammys’ in memoriam tribute. Musgraves was also on a collaboration streak recently, having teamed up with Fancy Hagood for “Blue Dream Baby” and Madi Diaz for “Don’t Do Me Good.” Most recently, she covered “Three Little Birds” for the upcoming biopic Bob Marley: One Love.
