Watch Kacey Musgraves Cover This Dreamy Fleetwood Mac Classic

Kacey Musgraves is never short on original material. Her sixth studio album Deeper Well is sparse only in sound, boasting 14 brand-new tracks. Still, many longtime fans would agree the “Golden Hour” singer has a knack for covers. Fans recently went crazy over her rendition of Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds.” The native Texan has the uncanny ability to make songs completely her own while still honoring the original. And that’s exactly what Musgraves did during a recent performance of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams.”

“I think, as musicians, we’re sold this lie that we have to suffer to create good art and that’s such a farce,” Musgraves said. “It’s dangerous, too, because it means that a lot of people hold on to their suffering far longer than they should. They’re scared that if they let go of it, they’re not going to create decent art – but suffering is just one colour on the wheel.”

Musgraves has certainly shown she knows how to use every color in her songwriting.
