Country music risk taker Kacey Musgraves wows a Grand Ole Opry audience when she takes on Elvis

It could have been the steel guitar, or the harmonies of Kacey Musgraves and Misa Arragia, or the fact that everyone in attendance knew how much The King himself would have loved this.

No matter what it was, it was magic.

At a Grand Ole Opry performance in 2013, Musgraves and now-boyfriend Arragia joined voices in a spectacular collaboration of Elvis Presley’s “Are You Lonesome Tonight.”

Since then, the Texas native has enjoyed her fair share of stardom via hits such as “Merry Go Round” and “Follow Your Arrow.” And on March 16th, she looks to continue her streak via the release of her new single “Biscuits,” which she played last year at the Key West Songwriting Festival.

“I’m very proud to be kickin’ things off with Biscuits! I think it’s the perfect preview to the record we had SO much fun making,” said Musgraves in a recent press release. “The sound of this song represents so many of the things I love about country music. And be warned – it may inspire a square dance.”

The single will be the first of many that will find themselves on her upcoming new album, which will attempt to successfully follow-up “Same Trailer Different Park,” which won a Grammy for “Best Country Album” and an ACM Award for “Album of the Year” winner.
