“People are just looking for something to connect with. We’re all made of the same emotions. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, or what you have your station set to. I feel like if I just stick to what makes me feel something, then it’s ultimately going to result in a connection with people.” For the latest digital cover of Glamour, senior editor Anna Moeslein speaks with six-time Grammy-award-winner and country star, Kacey Musgraves.

Musgraves considers her husband, Ruston Kelly, to be her muse. For her, meeting him at a songwriters’ showcase felt like a sign from the universe.

“If I wouldn’t have blocked off time to get off the road and try to create a new album and have the time to explore creatively, it makes me wonder if I would have met him. It was perfect timing.”

The couple married in 2017, and she credits Kelly, a fellow songwriter, as her inspiration for Album of the Year winner, Golden Hour.

“That whole time period was a big opening of heart for me. I started to see the world in a more fond, pretty light. After meeting this person who really allows me to just be myself, not have to walk on eggshells for any reason, songs started pouring out.”

Along with Album of the Year, Golden Hour won three other Grammys: Best Country Album, Best Country Solo Performance, and Best Country Song.

“It was a moment of definite disbelief, but also open heartedness…It was this overwhelming sense of gratitude.”

Of course, such high accolades also brought a sense of pressure for future work. Musgraves added more tour dates to her schedule and has already begun recording her next album.

“It can be freaky, because Golden Hour really resonated with a lot of people and reached far beyond what I ever thought it could do. So there can be a worry inside your mind a little bit, as a creative person, thinking about the fact that there’s no way to bank on the muse coming and visiting you again.”

Musgraves is known for her progressive views and “not giving a fu$k” attitude, and is taking things slow to encourage musical inspiration. She’s learned that requires saying no to many things.

“When you’re younger and have opportunities knocking at your door, you think, I have to say yes. What if they don’t knock again? But that’s just not how it really works,” she tells Moeslein. “Opportunities will knock as long as you feel like you have enough of yourself to keep going. That’s been a good part of hitting 30 and getting older—the power of saying no is a beautiful thing, and it can actually bring a lot more yeses into your life.”
