Kacey Musgraves Makes Psychedelic Cool Again in ‘High Horse’ Video
Kacey Musgraves' "High Horse" music video is filled to the brim with '70s swag: cigarettes, newspapers, bright-colored bell bottoms ... and there's Musgraves (born in 1988), who's looking rather fed-up with working in an office alongside some slimy characters.
So she does what we all do when put in that awkward situation: she starts daydreaming.
Her daydream takes her to a disco party that's complete with karaoke, some of her friends and a whole lot of sparkle. Even a white horse makes an appearance underneath a spinning disco ball towards the end of her daydream. Eventually, though, Musgraves snaps back to reality, throws on her oversized, rose-colored glasses and gets the heck out of that toxic office.
"It’s definitely surpassed my expectations—not that I had any," Musgraves says of touring with the pop star a new interview. "He’s a gentleman, a classy person, a sweetheart and someone who cares about music. I didn’t know that much about his music, but he wanted me to do this tour. He asked, and I listened, and I thought, 'Well, we’re meeting somewhere in the middle.' It’s incredible to see the intensity and energy his fans bring. I was a little nervous about it, but they come out and know the words to my songs, which is nice."
