There’s nothing like a Christmas special to get you in the holiday spirit. This year, the Grammy-award winning country artist premiered her own holiday show on the streaming platform, Amazon Prime. The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show premiered on Nov. 29, complete with colorful costumes, a larger-than-life set, and celebrity appearances.
“In the middle of making it all, I’ve been like, ‘What the f**k am I doing? I need this to be over right now,'” Musgraves said at the New York premiere of The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show. “It’s been a very long process, but I got really inspired by it. In my mind, I pictured this Wes Anderson-meets-Gucci-meets-Cher-meets-a live theater production.”
“What if we create a Christmas old-school TV special, à la the Judy Garland Show or The [Sonny and] Cher Show?” Musgraves continued. “Where there’s freeform, comedy bits, pretty sets, little vignettes, and the music flows throughout with a live band.”
