Kacey Musgraves Follows Her Arrow to the 2014 Grammy Awards Stage
However, instead of a desert setting, it was at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, but her vocals were as intact as on her record, which was nominated for Best Country Album at music’s biggest night.
The set of Musgraves’ performance was heavily decorated like a Mexican restaurant, with neon cacti lining the stage — and everyone else lighting it up too — including Musgraves herself!
The songstress’ cowgirl boots had some type of lighting technology within them, and they were blinking on and off like Christmas lights. She wore a short flared dress with gold tassels on the skirt and a bright fuchsia halter top, heavily embellished with jewels and studs.
Her backing band wore suits with the same light-up technology on their coats, making for aliterally dazzling performance. While for some artists, this type of kitschy set-up would be tacky, Musgraves made it completely fun, highlighted by her witty and insightful lyrics.
Earlier in the day, Musgraves picked up the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Country Song. Then, she won the full admiration of Grammy viewers with her stunning performance!
