Kacey Musgraves was the musical guest on the first episode of Saturday Night Live‘s 47th season over the weekend, hosted by Owen Wilson. During her appearance, the singer-songwriter performed ‘Justified’ and ‘Camera Roll’ – two cuts from her fifth studio album Star-Crossed, which arrived last month.
For ‘Justified’, Musgraves recreated a scene from Forrest Gump in which Robin Wright’s character performed nude behind an acoustic guitar – with Musgraves later tweeting a still from the scene after her performance. For her performance of ‘Camera Roll’, meanwhile, Musgraves began seated at a table, while on the other end an array of photographs of different people cycled through.
Musgraves released Star-Crossed, the follow-up to 2018’s Golden Hour, in early September. The singer released the album alongside a film of the same name which premiered on Paramount+. Musgraves recorded Star-Crossed with her Golden Hour collaborators Ian Fitchuk and Daniel Tashian, and described the record as a “modern-day tragedy” sequenced across three acts upon its announcement.
