Kacey Musgraves Drowns Her Sorrows With Willie Nelson in ‘Are You Sure’ Video
Off June's gorgeous 'Pageant Material'
Kacey Musgraves just released the music video for her Pageant Material album closer, “Are You Sure,” a hidden track that doubles as a duet with one of her idols, Willie Nelson. It finds both country stars sitting at opposite ends of a bar as Musgraves’ touring band plays behind her, the entire affair shrouded in a hazy pink filter.
When SPIN sat down with Musgraves back in June, she was days await from shooting the video. “. I really am a big fan of nostalgic hidden tracks,” she said of “Are You Sure” and its video. “It was something I was a big fan of growing up. So I thought, Willie Nelson is an artist that’s an album artist. He’s not a single artist. I don’t consider myself like that either so I thought this was a really nice, special moment and a treat for the people who make it to the very end of the record. Like, the record is over and slowly this western world — a kind of hazy, stoned-sounding western world — arises as a surprise at the end.”
