The GRAMMY winner prepares to take her brand of country in new directions. Three months of prestigious U.S. tour dates will kick off 2019 for Kacey Musgraves on her Oh, What A World Tour, beginning in Indianapolis on Jan. 9.
Traveling far and wide next year, Musgraves will stop in additional cities such as Toronto, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Denver, Dallas, Seattle, and Washington, D.C., before concluding her tour on March 21, 2019, in Birmingham, Ala. With a trek that also includes three nights at Nashville, Tenn.'s Ryman Auditorium in mid-February, this is looking like some new brand of country stature.
She's also enlisted a genre-defying group of tour openers. She'll be joined along the way by indie rockers Natalie Prass and Soccer Mommy, pop-folk singer/songwriter Liz Anne, and pop rocker Sinclair. Considering Musgraves has supported tours by artists as diverse as Loretta Lynn to Katy Perry and Harry Styles, her choice of openers for her own tour should come as no surprise.
This tour will support Musgraves' latest album, Golden Hour, her third No. 1 LP on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart. In March and April, four of its tracks climbed up the Hot Country Songs chart: "Butterflies," "High Horse," "Slow Burn," and the top-ranked "Space Cowboy," which made it to No. 30.
Tickets go on sale on July 20 for Musgraves' 2019 Oh, What A World Tour. If that's too long to wait, on July 29 she'll be playing the Fuji Rock Festival in Yuzawa, Japan. On Sept. 22 she'll be playing Farm Aid 2018.
