OFFSTAGE: Kenny Chesney Show Is "Gladiator Style," Says Kacey Musgraves

Kacey Musgraves
(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

“Pretty mindblowing.” That’s how country newcomer Kacey
Musgraves
described her first show in her new and much-coveted role as opening act for Kenny
Chesney
‘s tour. “What better of a person could you learn from? His show? It’s almost like gladiator style — people coming
from everywhere to see this person connect,” Musgraves
told Radio.com.
“That has been an inspiration to watch.” I haven’t seen the show yet, but I’ve read the reviews, so I
know that near the end of Chesney’s set, Musgraves heads back out onstage and sings “Come
Over”
with him. Which was insane but not scary, she said, because her brain wasn’t even letting her compute that kind
of crowd at their first stadium show in Tampa, Fla. “At that point, there was about 65,000 people there — biggest crowd I’ve
ever been in front of,” she said. As for her own set, she recently told CMT.com she likes to perform cover songs from
the very diverse list of bands she loves, including Weezer, Cake, ELO, the Beach Boys, Lee
Ann Womack
and John Prine. I would pay good money to hear ELO’s “Sweet
Talkin’ Woman” with banjo.
