The angelic vocals of Kacey Musgraves will be gracing the big screen near you very soon.
She’ll be featured on the upcoming Elvis movie soundtrack that’s set to hit theaters next month on June 24th, and from her caption, it sounds like she might be lending her vocals to his #1 hit “All Shook Up,” though she didn’t specifically confirm anything.
She did note that it’s been a dream come true to work with Baz Luhrmann, who is directing the biopic:
“I’M ALL SHOOK UP FOR REAL. It was an actual dream of mine to work with the great Baz Luhrmann in some capacity. Here we are.
You’ll hear my voice in the new Elvis Movie on a version of one of my favorite songs of all time.”
Other artists that will be featured on the soundtrack include some originals from Elvis, as well as new renditions of his biggest hits from a wide variety of others including Eminem, Doja Cat, Ceelo Green, Jack White, Stevie Nicks, Swae Lee, Diplo, Yola and tons more.
You can check out the full list of artist in Kacey’s post here:
It’s quite a diverse list from artists across musical genres, but I’m really intrigued to hear how they bring it all together, because from what I’ve seen so far in the trailers, the movie looks pretty good.
Austin Butler (Once Upon A Time In Hollywood) will take on the role of Elvis, reportedly beating out Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, and even Harry Styles for the role, while the great Tom Hanks will play Elvis’ manager Colonel Tom Parker.
Australian actress Olivia DeJonge will star as Elvis’ wife Priscilla.
The biopic of his life will span his childhood, growing up in Tupelo, Mississippi, all the way through his legendary rock ‘n roll career, all the way up until his death at iconic estate, Graceland.
Director Baz Luhrmann is also responsible for visually intriguing films like Moulin Rouge, The Great Gatsby, and Romeo + Juliet.
But, like, couldn’t Kacey have played Priscilla, too? Just sayin’…
Here she is singing “Velvet Elvis” from her Grammy-winning record Golden Hour on Austin City Limits back in 2018, and I feel like the resemblance is uncanny:
