Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Kacey Musgraves is partnering with Amazon Prime Video for the platform’s first Christmas themed special, which is titled “The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show.” The special event is scheduled to premiere on November 29th and is executive produced by Ben Winston, Emma Conway, Kacey Musgraves, and Jason Owen. Narrated by Dan Levy from “Schitt’s Creek,” the Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show invites fan to celebrate with Musgraves and her celebrity friends.
The company described the holiday special in the announcement adding, “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.” Joining Mudgraves in the event is an all-star cast of friends with performances of both classic and original holiday songs. The list includes 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.”
The Radio City Rockettes will also join Musgraves during her number “Ribbons and Bows.” Special guest Kendall Jenner also stops by to spread holiday cheer as Musgraves counts down to Christmas. The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show will be accompanied by an official soundtrack available on Amazon Music and other DSPs beginning November 29th. You can get ready for the holidays with Musgraves’ current holiday album, and you can find the collection of her work right here on Amazon.
“I can say without a doubt that this project is unlike anything I’ve ever done before,” states Musgraves. “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.”
“Kacey Musgraves feels like a timeless, classic and potentially iconic, artist,” says Executive Producer Ben Winston. “We wanted to make a holiday special that felt equally timeless and classic. Paying tribute to the shows of the past, whilst setting a trend for the present, The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show is something we are proud of and very excited for an audience to see.”
