Grammy Award-winning country singer, Kacey Musgraves took over television Tuesday (Oct. 2) on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with her epic performance of “Love Is a Wild Thing”, off her fourth major label studio album ‘Golden Hour’. Find our ‘First Impression’ review of the album here.
Although not yet introduced as the singer-songwriter’s single, “Love Is a Wild Thing” is one of the many standout tracks on the latest record. The song embodies Musgraves’ light, playful, and honest artistry. Kimmel excitedly announced the singer’s performance as part of the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live Concert Series’ sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, sharing, “This is her album! It’s called Golden Hour. Here with her song, “Love Is A Wild Thing,” Kacey Musgraves!” as fans erupted into applause.
Musgraves graced the outdoor stage on Hollywood Boulevard, guitar in hand, giving off ethereal vibes and mesmerizing the audience with her angelic voice. Backed by a six piece band, all dressed in retro suits, the Texas native performed her beautiful song with so much poise and heart.
The elegant fantasy setting resonated with fans and carried over into the background. As Musgraves continued her seemingly effortless performance, the background transformed into a pink-hued fall setting with bubbles floating around.
Check out the performance in the video above, then check out a bonus performance of Musgraves’ “Wonder Woman”, which was not aired during the show in the video below.
Musgraves embarks on her world tour, ‘Oh, What a World: Tour,’ early 2019 beginning in Indianapolis, Indiana, with many shows already selling out.
