Kacey Musgraves Becomes First Solo Female Artist to Score No. 1 Country Album in More Than 5 Months

Kacey Musgraves earned her third No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with the debut of Golden Hour, which moved 49,000 equivalent units in its first week, according to Nielsen Music.

Kacey became the first solo female artist to top the chart since Jessie James Decker in November 2017.

The new 13-song offering follows Kacey’s 2013 debut album, Same Trailer Different Park, and her 2015 sophomore album, Pageant Material, both of which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.

Kacey co-wrote every track on Golden Hour, and she co-produced the new album with Ian Fitchuk and Daniel Tashian.

“I had a different mindset this time, which was feeling rather than thinking—leading heart first,” says Kacey.

Golden Hour also debuted atop Billboard’s Americana/Folk chart.
