Kacey Musgraves concert rescheduled to April 9

The date for a rescheduled concert at Western Carolina University featuring multiple Country Music Association Awards nominee Kacey Musgraves has been announced, and it is Wednesday, April 9.

Scheduling conflicts have forced artist management and concert organizers to find another date for the event, originally announced for Saturday, Oct. 26, at WCU’s Liston B. Ramsey Regional Activity Center as part of Homecoming weekend. Tickets already purchased for Musgraves’ “Same Trailer, Different Tour” concert at WCU will be honored for the rescheduled show. Refunds are available upon request for those unable to attend on the new date.

Earlier this fall, Musgraves tied superstar Taylor Swift for the highest number of CMA nominations – six – including album of the year and female vocalist of the year awards. The CMA awards show will be broadcast live on ABC on Wednesday, Nov. 6.

After releasing three albums independently in her early teens, Musgraves appeared on the USA Network’s singing competition “Nashville Star” in 2007. She joined country supergroup Lady Antebellum on its “Own the Night” tour in 2012 in the United Kingdom. She also signed that year with Mercury Records, releasing her solo debut single “Merry Go ‘Round.”

The single is included on her first Mercury album, “Same Trailer, Different Park,” which was released in March of this year, debuting at the top of the country album charts. “Blowing Smoke,” the second single from her debut album, currently is climbing the country music charts.

Arena seat tickets for the April 9 show are $15 for WCU students and $20 for all others if purchased in advance. Floor seat tickets are $20 for WCU students and $25 for all others if purchased in advance. Tickets purchased on the day of the show are $20 for arena seats and $25 for floor seats.

The concert is sponsored by WCU’s Department of Residential Living and the A.K. Hinds University Center.
