Kacey Musgraves Takes Over ‘SNL’ And Details The Importance Of Vulnerability

Speaking about her upcoming album with Apple Music 1, Musgraves detailed how she focused on creating a connection with her fans. “I really do believe in the biggest, most powerful form of connection is vulnerability. So it’s like on one hand, I think there’s hardly ever any mystery left in life, especially with artists. But at the same time, we’re here to connect.”

Admitting that she loves to spend time at home, Musgraves explained how life gets a little chaotic with new music. “I really enjoy and revere my privacy and having something just for me and my personal life. I’m really kind of a homebody.” She added, “And as you get ready to release a project, this tsunami of madness is coming to work me. And you’re going to be very public-facing again. And that can be — that’s kind of hard for me sometimes.”

Although life is getting somewhat turbulent for the singer, Musgraves is excited to take to the SNL stage tonight to help her prepare for her world tour. Be sure to tune in to SNL, airing tonight at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
