Kacey Musgraves Makes Psychedelic Cool Again in ‘High Horse’ Video
Kacey Musgraves' "High Horse" music video is filled to the brim with seventies swag: cigarettes, newspapers, bright-colored bell bottoms ... and there's Musgraves (born in 1988), who's looking rather fed up with working in an office alongside some slimy characters.
So she does what we all do when put in that awkward situation: she starts daydreaming.
Her daydream takes her to a disco party that's completely with karaoke, some of her friends and a whole lot of sparkle. Even a white horse makes an appearance underneath a spinning disco ball towards the end of her daydream. Eventually, though, Musgraves snaps back to reality, throws on her oversized, rose-colored glasses and gets the heck out of that toxic office.
"It’s definitely surpassed my expectations—not that I had any," Musgraves says of touring with the pop star a new interview. "He’s a gentleman, a classy person, a sweetheart and someone who cares about music. I didn’t know that much about his music, but he wanted me to do this tour. He asked, and I listened, and I thought, 'Well, we’re meeting somewhere in the middle.' It’s incredible to see the intensity and energy his fans bring. I was a little nervous about it, but they come out and know the words to my songs, which is nice."
