Kacey Musgraves learned a lot about herself through writing her latest album, Golden Hour.
Prior to starting the record, the “Space Cowboy” singer was in a low place. She shared with Taste of Country:
“Before making this record, I can definitely say that I was in a weird, personal place. I was at a really low point of self-confidence. When you’re with the wrong person, you can be made to feel like you’re not worth love. It can take time or the right person to build those things back up. I feel like I came out of a shell that I didn’t even know that I was in when I met Ruston, and it’s been really transformative.”
Two tracks from the album in particular trace Kacey’s transition from feeling unworthiness to evolving into a better version of herself after meeting now-husband Ruston Kelly:
“I feel like I’ve gone through this metamorphosis of sorts. It was really important for me to tell both sides of the story when really seeing ‘Space Cowboy’ and ‘Butterflies’ together. I had truly given up and [when] was like, ‘I am not worth real love,’ I found it. And I was not looking for it.”
