You love to see it.

Kacey Musgraves has two more Platinum records under her belt, as “Space Cowboy” and “Slow Burn” have both officially been certified Platinum by the RIAA.

Both from her Grammy-winning, breakout 2018 Golden Hour record, this means both songs have each moved an impressive over one million units since they were released five years ago now:

They were both two of my favorites from that critically-acclaimed, #1 record, and it’s pretty easy to see how they helped catapult her into the mainstream view, because both are truly works of art.

Kacey co-wrote “Space Cowboy” with Luke Laird and Shane McAnally, and penned “Slow Burn” with Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk.

Of course, they quickly became fan-favorites, and were both released as singles to country radio, though neither did too much on the radio charts, unfortunately.

Nonetheless, thy clearly resonated with fans all over the world, and I’m always happy to see Miss Kacey getting the credit she deserves for her music.

Kacey most recently released her self-proclaimed “divorce album” Star-Crossed in 2021, though it wasn’t exactly the country masterpiece I was really hoping for, and more recently performed a beautiful tribute to the late, great Loretta Lynn at the 2023 Grammy Awards.

It’s still one of my all-time favorite things she’s ever done, so make sure you check it out if you haven’t seen it before:
