Kacey Musgraves Embraces Her Inner Tourist at Dollywood Bachelorette Party
Kacey Musgraves is gettin’ hitched, and she celebrated with her girlfriends in a way that was very on brand for the kitchy-chic Dolly Parton fan: going to Dollywood.
The singer-songwriter took some time to get away to a cabin in Tennessee's Smokey Mountains over the weekend of July 15, and she and her friends did it up right, complete with customized fanny packs, air-brushed tees and personalized cookies.
Musgraves posted an Instagram compilation of photos and clips from the weekend, and it looks like she and her friends had a blast. According to the photos and her caption, they bedazzled their own bandanas, rode some roller coasters (that almost gave Musgraves a stroke) and had “the most magical time EVER!”
“Dolly Parton — you sure run a classy establishment,” the fellow star writes.
It’s well known that Musgraves adores country legends like Parton and all things quirky, so this whole weekend was a perfect fit for the bride-to-be (Flip through her photos above to see glimpses of the celebration). She got engaged to fellow singer-songwriter Ruston Kelly in December.
“I finally know what everyone means when they say ‘you just know,’” she said on Instagram at the time. Though she joked about wanting swans to bring her into the ceremony, she insists she doesn't want anything too fancy.
"I want something really simple and intimate. Just very me. I just want it to have my personality," she said.
Musgraves and Kelly recently teamed up to release a unique take on a Johnny Cash poem, “To June, This Morning,” which will be featured on an upcoming compilation album titled Johnny Cash Forever Words: The Music. Musgraves also gearing up to go on tour with boy band frontman-turned-thoughtful-solo-artist Harry Styles next summer.
