New York - Grammy-winning country songstress Kacey Musgraves played a show at Radio City Music Hall on June 10, opening for such musical acts as Alison Krauss and Union Station and Willie Nelson.
She commenced her set with a subtle vocal "The Trailer Song."
Musgraves greeted the New York audience and noted that she is "freaking out" for being at Radio City Music Hall, on the same bill as Alison Krauss and Union Station and Country Music Hall of Famer Willie Nelson.
She continued with "Silver Lining," which she dubbed as one of her favorite tracks from her album Same Trailer Different Park. It is a tune about trying to see the good in a bad situation.
Prior to singing "Step Off," Musgraves congratulated her drummer on his engagement that took place today. "Ladies, he is off the market," she said.
Her vocals on "It is What It Is" were reminiscent of Miranda Lambert and it showcased a noteworthy pedal steel solo.
Musgraves went on to take off her shoes and joked, "When your toes are numb, that is probably a good sign."
Accompanying herself on tambourine and maracas she sang "I Just Want To Dance With You."
It was followed by her breakthrough Top 10 hit single "Merry Go 'Round," where she played the banjo.
"Are you still with us out there?" she asked the New York crowd, and they concurred with Musgraves.
She immediately broke into her latest single, the empowering "Follow Your Arrow," which was inspired by all different people making themselves happy with what they do, and she incorporated it as a crowd sing-along.
Musgraves closed her set with an a capella rendition of "Happy Trails" that included harmony vocals from her male band-mates.
The Verdict
Overall, Kacey Musgraves warmed up the stage for Alison Krauss and Union Station and Willie Nelson, with her mellow vocals and her authentic songwriting. She managed to stay true to her traditional country roots, and she had the audience with her every step of the way.
After a great year she has had musically and a solid concert at Radio City Music Hall, Musgraves deserves to be nominated for "Female Vocalist of the Year" at the upcoming Country Music Association (CMA) awards this year.
