Kacey Musgraves Debuts New Song In Dublin, “Irish Goodbye”

Kacey Musgraves country music

A new tune from Kacey Musgraves.

The Texas native released her fifth studio album Deeper Well in March, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and has already become a favorite among fans.

Kacey kicked off her headlining world tour in support of the new album this past weekend in Dublin, Ireland, where she played multiple nights at the Olympia… and she even played a brand new song for the crowd on night two, saying no one in the world has even heard it yet, appropriately titled “Irish Goodbye”:

“So I’m gonna end this show right now with a song that you’ve never heard before… this is not something that night one got, it’s just for you.

And honestly, no one in the world has heard this song yet. And I’m really hoping that some more songs can come out soon, so yes, fingers crossed for that.”

The song is about the pain of being “ghosted” in a relationship, and feeling like your significant other left you with no warning or proper closure, hence the title:

“No face to face, no eye to eye
I thought this meant more
But I guess that’s alright
I’ll forgive your faults if you’ll forgive mine
But it’s hard to forgive
Your Irish goodbye”

She also hinted at a deluxe version of Deeper Well being in the works, so hopefully, this one makes the cut because I love the unique concept and beautiful sound of it already.

Kacey herself has admitted that Deeper Well had a lot of Celctic influence, and I think that comes through very clearly here too. Do yourself a favor and check it out:

And speaking of Celtic influence, this is probably the best example of it on the album and one of my favorites:
