Kacey Musgraves is about to kick Chrismas in the jingle bells. The country star announced her first holiday special, The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show, on Monday (Nov. 4), which will find the singer joined by an all-star cast of collaborators on a variety of classic and original holiday songs.
The special, directed by Dan Levy (Schitt's Creek) will premiere globally on Nov. 29 and feature Musgraves teaming up with Fred Armisen on "Silent Night," Leon Bridges on "Present Without a Bow," Camila Cabello on "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," James Corden on "Let It Snow," Zooey Deschanel on "Mele Kalikimaka," Lana Del Rey on "I"ll Be Home For Christmas" and Troye Sivan on the world debut of "Glittery."
She will, of course, be joined by the Radio City Rockettes, who will do one of their famous kickline routines as Musgraves sings "Ribbons and Bows," as well as special guest Kendall Jenner. The show "invites fans in as Musgraves prepares for a most joyful Christmas gathering with a whimsical set and dazzling wardrobe influenced by the artist’s fresh aesthetic," according to a release announcing the special. "Equal parts heart-warming and cleverly absurd, Musgraves pays tribute to holiday specials of the past whilst also reinventing just what a Christmas special can be, with a magically modern twist."
“I can say without a doubt that this project is unlike anything I’ve ever done before,” Musgraves says in a statement. “What started as the small seed of an idea one night over a year ago has turned into something I’m so proud of. Some truly brilliant comedic and musical guests are featured in the show — as well as my own Grandma. My vision was to bring my old Christmas album to life visually and create a modern and fashionable, fresh take on a classic format. It’s a nostalgic, Wes Anderson-inspired reimagining of the holidays. It’s heartfelt, funny, and most of all, real. I can’t wait to finally share.”
The show will be accompanied by an official soundtrack available on Amazon Music and other digital services on Nov. 29 as well.
