The Inspiration

Musgraves pulled inspiration from classic television specials like Judy Garland's Christmas shows and The Cher Show, she told Newsweek. She decided to create her own version of the family-friendly television show last year while brainstorming on her tour bus.

While the special is full of exciting, joyful moments, there's a bit of sadness to balance it. This isn't surprising for Musgraves, who has embraced the idea of mutual emotions in the past. Her song "Happy and Sad", off her Golden Hour album, talks of embracing two opposite emotions in a single moment. The Christmas special is no different. There are minutes of pessimism, confusion, sadness and celebration, all in the less-than-hour-long musical extravaganza. To partner, there are also dance numbers, comedic skits and emotional duets.

Musgraves designed the special to bring her 2016 Christmas album to life. A Very Kacey Christmas featured some classic Christmas songs along with some original holiday tunes. In The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show, Musgraves performs them again.

"[The Christmas album] came out several years ago. It was one of the most fun projects I've ever worked on," she told Newsweek. "And I really didn't expect it to be because we all think 'Oh, Christmas music. There are a million versions out there.' But as I got deeper in the project, I realized I was treating it exactly like I would any other album of mine. The same amount of creativity and time went into that as the other ones."

To go with the Christmas special, Musgraves also released a new holiday song, 'Glittery.' The song is featured in the Christmas show as a duet with pop star Troye Sivan, but the solo version can be heard on her reimagined Christmas album, The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show. The album is available on all streaming platforms.
