“It’s Kacey here and excited to be apart of this, the other night I got a phone call. It was kind of getting late and I don’t answer unknown numbers but for some reason, I did, and it was Matthew [McConaughey].” Musgraves explained. “And he was like ‘hey Kacey, want to be part of this thing I’m doing, it’s gonna be really cool.’ Obviously, it was a ‘hell yes’ from me. I think this is wonderful, anything I can do to support and lend a hand to my wonderful fellow Texans. I’m there for it. I’m all about it.”

Musgraves’ continued, “I really miss my homestate, I miss my homestate, I miss the food, I miss the people. And I miss being on the road.”

“On the Road Again” is a Nelson-penned track that earned Nelson his ninth No. 1 hit.
