Months after sweeping the 2019 GRAMMY Awards, Musgraves is opening up about life, love and psychedelics in a new story for V Magazine. Only ET has your first look at the interview and Musgraves' high fashion photo shoot.
"I hadn't made eye contact with a carb in so long," she says of GRAMMYs night, explaining her post-show fast food ritual. "I got a giant cheeseburger, a fried chicken sandwich, and fries. I sat there in my Valentino dress and ate every single bite."
Musgraves took home four trophies that night for her work on Golden Hour, including Album of the Year. The project was largely inspired by her relationship with her husband, fellow singer-songwriter Ruston Kelly.
"He turned my life around in a lot of ways, and opened me up to seeing the world in a more positive light," she says. "There's a lot of hurt out there, and that's a real part of life. But I was inspired to write about the universe and our souls and where we come from. And this person that I found. The magic of it all."
The 30-year-old also gets candid about the inspiration that comes from psychedelics.
"It helps you get outside of your own head," she explains. "In the grand scheme of things, we're just little specks of sand. It sounds trippy, but we're nothing. And we're also everything. Compassion [is] getting outside how big you think you are in the world."
Within the world of country music, Musgraves also draws inspiration from trailblazers -- specifically, the legendary Dolly Parton.
"She encompasses all these things; a bombshell with a wicked sense of humor and intelligence, whip-smart songwriting abilities, [and she's] a businesswoman," she gushes. "The entire package."
Musgraves was styled by Ketevan Gvaramadze for her pictorial, shot by Grant Greenberg. Hair and makeup were provided by Giovanni Delgado and Moani Lee, respectively.
