Her Red Rocks show, along with two Tedeschi Trucks Band concerts on June 29 announced earlier this morning, break what had appeared to be a drought of female artists headlining the venue in 2019; out of the first thirty-some concerts announced, not one was fronted exclusively by a woman.
Musgraves, who just released an old-timey country song, "Kansas City Star," has been nominated for four 2018 Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Best Country Album for Golden Hour, Best Country Solo Performance for "Butterflies" and Best Country Song for "Space Cowboy."
She'll be performing on June 26, and tickets for the Red Rocks concert go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, December 14, at AXS.
