Country Singer Kacey Musgraves Fears Alien Abduction!

Kacey Musgraves is a busy young woman, currently doing the late night circuit to promote her upcoming new album, Pageant Material, and doing interviews everywhere. She also just dropped her latest, newest video for her current single, “Biscuits.” And in one email interview, she admitted that she’s seen a few UFOs and is scared to death of alien abuction — that she, herself, will be abducted by aliens.

Rolling Stone Country reported June 12 that Kacey Musgraves, the Nashville country singing darling who won a Grammy for her debut album Same Trailer Different Park, debuted a new song, “Family Is Family,” from her new album on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers Wednesday (actually — Thursday morning). Using traditional cues (as has become her claim to fame; read: Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart,” which she co-wrote) and a pithy sense of humor, she performed a song set in Rural, USA. Accompanied by a percussionist spoons player (yes, he actually kept rhythm with a set of spoons), she talked/sang about her hard-drinking, sometimes embarrassing, often contentious “family,” noting “you might look just like ’em but you don’t have to like ’em — but you love ’em.”

That new music debut was preceded by the release of her new music video for the first single, “Biscuits,” from the new album which dropped earlier on Wednesday. The video features Musgraves in a bandana dress churning butter and sharing video time with a bunch of chickens and a fiddle-playing muppet. She told Rolling Stone Country in an interview that the video was comparative to “‘Hee Haw’ meets ‘Pee-wee’s Playhouse’ meets Wes Anderson.”

Still, her new music simply shows that she’s not your mama’s female country singer. That she’s a bit different than the regular Nashville songstress of yore is no secret. She collaborated on “Follow Your Arrow” with Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally, a song that won Song of the Year at the 2014 Country Music Association Awards but was met with considerable criticism because of its seeming hedonistic lyrics that some took as open endorsement of gays (it was) and an attack on Christians (only the judgmental). And she recently presented a list of things that people might not know about her to Us magazine, a list that displays the 26-year-old singer as someone with eccentric side.

In the list of “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me,” Kacey Musgraves confided that she was a hot tea drinker (sacrilege in the South), once saved a mouse from Nashville traffic, likes riding horses and eating spicy food, once was a belly dancer, went on a bigfoot hunt one time, and has a fear of being abducted by aliens — the kind that travel in UFOs. She also admitted to seeing several UFOs as well.

In fact, according to Open Minds TV, she admitted on Twitter in 2012 and 2013 to having made two UFO sightings. In an interview with People magazine in March, she went into further detail.

According to Musgraves, she’s had two UFO sightings, the first being in Mexico and in company of a group of people on a beach who all saw a glowing orb in the sky. The second, she said, was in Nashville, where she saw two “giant balls of fire” hovering over a neighborhood.

Still, eccentric or not, the singer/songwriter appears to be on a musical roll. And if she continues to produce well-written, quirky, catchy, meaningful, country songs (and her new music looks to be along those lines), there’s no reason to believe she won’t stay on a roll.
