David Crosby Is Getting Closer to Spelling Kacey Musgraves’s Name Correctly

David Crosby visits the SiriusXM studios for the "John Fugelsang Interviews David Crosby" Event at SiriusXM Studios on October 28, 2016 in New York City.

David Crosby, folk-rock legend and proprietor of one of the only good accounts on Twitter, is better at songwriting than he is at remembering his name or the names of fellow musicians. Last week, he wanted to give a nice little shoutout to Kacey Musgraves, who’d recently won the Album of the Year Grammy, but he called her Casey instead.

Musgraves didn’t seem too bent up about it. “Doesn’t ring a bell..” she tweeted in response when he inquired of his followers, “have any of you heard a girl named Casey Musgraves ….song called Slow Burn ?”

Now, a week later, after a follower asked him for some music recommendations, Crosby got a little closer. But he’s still not quite nailing it.

Stick with it, Croz! You’re only one letter away.
