Kacey Musgraves had a legendary night at the 61st Grammy Awards, with her performance of “Rainbow” from her 2018 album Golden Hour. Soon after, she released the video for the record that’s both peaceful and soothing with its warm barrage of colors and obsession with flowers. Check it out below, take a load off.
The video spends its time showing various people in different stages of sadness. There’s the guy with a sea of empty alcohol bottles in front of him, a single mother dealing with a crying baby, an older woman washing a teacup while looking beyond her house for something bigger to be a part of, and others in need of more than just a hug. While these people bask in sorrow, Kacey is revealed to be the shining light singing her uplifting tune, gently asking the people to look on the brighter side of things. The lightning of the video is by far the most compelling part, illuminating different parts of the scenes with the colors of the rainbow. The video ends with a serene scene; Musgraves sits inside a room filled with beautiful flowers and lush vegetation. It’s the visual version of having your shoulders rubbed after a long day at work.
Last night, Musgraves’ Golden Hour won Best Country Album and Album of the Year at the Grammys. In addition to these two enormous awards, Musgraves snagged the trophies for Best Country Solo Performance for “Butterflies” and Best Country Song for “Space Cowboy.” She also took the stage and paid tribute to Dolly Parton.
