Kacey Musgraves declined an audience request to do a ‘shoey’ during a gig in Sydney, Australia over the weekend.
The country star is currently on her first-ever headline tour in the country, and she was playing at the city’s Enmore Theatre on Sunday night (May 12) when she was initially asked by a member of the audience to take a drink from her shoe.
According to News.com.AU, a lone call for Musgraves to do a ‘shoey’ from one member of the sold-out crowd soon grew into something of a chorus, but Musgraves then firmly shut down the strange request.
“That’s disgusting,” she said in response to the calls. “I’m not fucking drinking out of your shoe.”
Her refusal to do a ‘shoey’ during the show was greeted with plenty of praise from her fans on Twitter, who appreciated her refusal to bow to the audience’s request.

Went to the @KaceyMusgraves show last night. It blew my mind. She’s charismatic, intelligent, commanding, beautiful, has some serious vocal ability, is so fucking funny, and last but not least, managed to politely but firmly shut down a shoey request. Respect overload

I can't believe we, as an audience, almost bullied @KaceyMusgraves into doing a shoey on stage tonight. Oh what a world, indeed
