Kacey Musgraves’ ‘Golden Hour’ Named Apple Music Album of the Year

Represent.

With the end of the year approaching, Apple Music’s editors have awarded their highest honors to the artists who truly represent the very best of 2018. They have awarded Kacey Musgraves’ critically-acclaimed album Golden Hour the prestigious all-genre award for “Album of the Year.”

When asked who she would award the 2018 album of the year Kacey said,“ My favorite release of 2018 was from my husband, Ruston Kelly.  His record ‘Dying Star’ is an emotional and sparse conglomeration of influences from all over the map. It sounds like him, but also sounds like Jackson Browne had a musical baby with Elliot Smith and Weezer. I’ve seen Ruston live out and overcome the dark times that inspired the songs..so that makes listening to it even more beautiful.”

Good stuff.
