One of the most angelic renditions of this song I’ve ever heard.
Last night, Kacey Musgraves closed out the first-ever Christmas at Graceland holiday special with an absolutely stunning performance of Elvis’classic hit “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
She walked down the front steps in a stunning white, fully sequined and feather-trimmed gown with a simple piano backing her, and honestly, I thought it was easily the performance of the night that also included some great stuff from Post Malone, Lainey Wilson and more.
Kacey previously recorded a version of the iconic song as part of the Elvis movie soundtrack, so it was perfectly fitting to have her be such a big part of the show and close it out in a way that truly honored The King.
Christmas at Graceland was produced by Elvis’ granddaughter Riley Keough, and I hope it becomes a yearly tradition simply because it’s so fun to see Graceland all lit up with the magic of Christmas.
Of course, “Can’t Help Falling in Love” was recorded by Elvis Presley for his 1961 Blue Hawaii album, and was written by Hugo Peretti, Luigi Creatore and George David Weiss. It eventually peaked at #2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1962.
One of the top comments on Kacey’s Twitter page summed it up best, though:
“Great song. The entire show could have been just you honestly.”
They definitely saved the best for last in this case…
Also, I’m still not over her whole look… from the perfectly-teased hair and stunning dress, Kacey stole the show in every possible way:
