Kacey Musgraves to Play Austin City Limits Music Festival
Kacey Musgraves is among the dozens of artists slated to play the 2019 Austin City Limits Music Festival. She's one of a handful of country and Americana acts set for the October event.
Tyler Childers and Asleep at the Wheel are two others listed on the poster. Headliners include Guns N' Roses, Mumford & Sons, Childish Gambino and the Cure.
The ACL Festival takes place over two weekends at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas: Oct. 4-6 and Oct. 11-13. Per her website, Musgraves will perform on Oct. 4 and Oct. 11, and the shows will be her last in the United States before she finishes the year in the Dominican Republic.
ACL Fest is another iconic festival date for Musgraves in 2019, all scheduled between her international Oh, What a World Tour. The Governors Ball in New York City, Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tenn. and Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Telluride, Colo. are three others she's playing. She'll also play Lollapalooza in Chicago on Aug. 4 and played Coachella in April. She last played ACL Fest in 2016.
It's been a banner year for Musgraves, as her Golden Hour won a triumphant number of awards in and out of country music, including Album of the Year honors at the ACM and CMA Awards and Album of the Year (all genre and in country music) at the Grammys. She also ended Miranda Lambert's streak of ACM Female Vocalist of the Year wins in 2019.
The 30-year-old Musgraves grew up in Golden, Texas, a four-hour drive northeast of Austin. Musically she's given no indication she is working on new music while touring, although several people have expressed an interest to collaborate with her and vice versa.
