Label: Mercury Nashville
Album: Pageant Material
Release Date: June 23, 2015
Featuring 13 tracks all co-written by Musgraves, the album is an homage to the throwback sound of the 26-year-old singer's heroes -- including Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn and Willie Nelson, the latter of whom makes a surprise cameo.
"The majority of Pageant Material was recorded live -- which was a bit of a departure from Same Trailer -- and gave it more of a concise, classic sound," Musgraves says in a statement. "All of the incredible musicians were in the same room playing on the entire record, and I think that spirit comes across. The last couple of years have done so much for me, and this project was really affected by that in the best way. There are certain moments lyrically that still hit me hard even after listening so many times. It's a great glimpse into where my head is from Same Trailer to now."
