Kacey Musgraves may have left Texas for the honkier honky-tonks of Nashville, but the Lone Star State still likes to claim her as our own. The Golden, Texas-born Musgraves is coming back to her stomping grounds next year for a two stops on a worldwide tour — including one in Dallas.
On July 16, the musician announced dates for her Oh, What a World Tour's North American leg, which runs January through April 2019. Luckily, DFW's getting one date: March 8, at The Bomb Factory in Dallas.
Musgraves' only other Texas shows will be in Austin on March 9 and 10 at Stubb's Waller Creek Amphitheater. Sinclair is slated as the opening act in both cities. Musgraves' Austin dates coincide with the beginning of SXSW 2019 and are followed by a 10-day break in her tour. While no official SX performance has been announced (and likely won't be for a while), fans can do with that information what they will.
Musgraves moved to Austin in 2006 after high school, but it wasn't until she moved to the land of the Grand Ole Opry that the singer-songwriter hit the big time. The country darling has had an unprecedented first half of 2018, including a smash hit album, Golden Hour; the March cover of Texas Monthly; a guest spot on Saturday Night Live; and a June taping of Austin City Limits. Musgraves is planning an equally ambitious second half of the year with her world tour, which includes dates in Japan, Europe, and Canada.
Tickets for her Dallas show are on sale now through a special artist pre-order and will go on sale to the public on July 20 at 10 am.
