The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show
Musgraves and guests like Camila Cabello and Fred Armisen embrace the awkwardness of the holidays in her Amazon special
Musgraves blows that idea up to absurd proportions with a bold splash of color in the delightfully quirky The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show, executive produced by Musgraves with Ben Winston, Emma Conway, and Jason Owen, and streaming now on Amazon Prime. Boasting an all-star guest list of singers and comedians, it’s a vivid, candy-coated experience that whirls together retro variety-show sheen, cornball comedy, sincere nostalgia, and a host of elegant performances from the gifted artist who dreamed it all up.
The setup is simple: It’s the night before Christmas and Musgraves has misplaced her tree topper somewhere. She’s also forgotten to buy gifts for the guys in her band and has a mountain of work to do before her guests start arriving. But as comedy special rules dictate, a parade of folks all start showing up early and musical hijinks ensue.
