Kacey Musgraves Performs On SNL Wearing Only Cowboy Boots And A Guitar


Kacey Musgraves performed on SNL for the second time Saturday (October 2), but unlike her first appearance in 2018, the “Golden Hour” singer sang while wearing only cowboy boots.

It appears that Musgraves took inspiration from the ’90s movie hit Forrest Gump for her SNL performance of “Justified,” a single from her latest album release, Star-Crossed. Similar to the scene in Forrest Gump where Jenny performs sitting atop a stool covered only by a guitar, Kacey took the SNL stage in similar fashion, but donned cowboy boots.

“Justified” is one of fifteen songs on Star-Crossed, a project that was written by Musgraves in the wake of the end of her 2 1/2 year marriage to musician Ruston Kelly.

“Part of me questions marriage as a whole, in general,” Musgraves told Rolling Stone. “I mean, I was open to it when it came into my life. I embraced it. I just have to tell myself I was brave to follow through on those feelings…I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on growing up as a woman in the South and being a performer from a young age — we were told to please, to make this person happy. That has to imprint on your code. It kind of erodes boundaries. So I’m trying to examine things that may not be useful anymore and maybe unlearn some things.”

Musgraves followed up her SNL “Justified” performance with a fully-clothed tv debut of “Camera Roll,” a relatable ballad about old memories hidden on our cell phone camera roll.

“I don’t wanna see ’em/But I can’t delete ’em/It just doesn’t feel right yet,” Musgraves sings.
