Pageant Material is the follow-up to 2013’s Same Trailer Different Park, which won the Grammy award for Best Country Album. Musgraves once again co-wrote all of the tracks and co-produced the LP with Shane McAnally and Luke Laird.

“I really wanted this album to have a classic feel, like a lot of the records I know and love,” Musgraves said. “I intended on it having a laid-back yet lush, slightly kitschy, western vibe. And most of all, I wanted it to feel like me.”

In its 3.5-star review, Rolling Stone writes, “Her follow-up is more calculated and confident, intent on both courting and bending the mainstream with wit and timeless arrangements. It misses some of Trailer’s storytelling wistfulness and formal experiments –

but track for track, it’s stronger, an object lesson in Nashville songwriting.”

The Kacey Musgraves Country & Western Rhinestone Revue follows a previously announced run of dates in June and July that includes an appearance at Willie Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic in Austin July 4. Speaking of Willie, look out for a hidden-track on Pageant Material – a duet with the Red Headed Stranger called “Are You Sure.”
