Country star Kacey Musgraves served up some Southern style at The Paramount Theater in Long Island, NY over the weekend. She performed tracks from her new album, “Pageant Material,” which was just released last month, along with hits from the Grammy winning “Same Trailer, Different Park.” We love Kacey’s style – her set was made to look like a sunset over the Texan desert, complete with neon cactus lights. Her 5 piece band wore their signature light up suit jackets, and played everything from the steel guitar to the upright bass to the banjo. They joined Kacey at the front of the stage at the end of the evening for “My House,” doing a little do-si-do.
Throughout the evening, Kacey showed off her vocal range and clever songwriting skills. Other highlights of her set included a country version of TLC’s “No Scrubs” and a cover of Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart,” which Kacey penned. She also filled the audience in on the inspiration for some of the tracks on her new album. When she was 11 a crazy stage mom called her a “dime store cowgirl,” which Kacey ended up turning into a song. She gave a shout out to her “momma” who was in attendance. We’re sure that even though Kacey’s “not Pageant Material” she’s still proud!
The crowd was singing along to every word, even the newer material. Kacey took time near the end of the set to individually point out and thank fans in the crowd (by name!) Some had made her unique gifts, others had been to countless shows, and a young girl had asked Kacey to sign her guitar before the show.
She closed out the show with an encore that began with a solo acoustic performance of “Cup of Tea” before her hit “Follow Your Arrow.” Kacey came back out wearing light up boots for a country version of “These Boots Are Made For Walking” which had the whole venue rocking. She thanked the crowd one final time and wished them safe travels before doing an acapella version of “Happy Trails” with her band.
