Musgraves was performing the opening set at the Houston Rodeo to a crowd of over 53,000.
Earlier in the evening, she performed a well-received tribute to Tejano legend, Selena Quintanilla, performing the late singers hit ‘Como La Flor.’
Naming ‘High Horse’ as one of the best songs of 2018, NME wrote: “One of the early singles released from Kacey Musgraves’ critically acclaimed ‘Golden Hour’, ‘High Horse’ fused two genres often seen at opposing poles – country and disco – to create one of the most infectious pop songs of 2018.
“Subtle country guitars combine with glam orchestral disco as Musgraves fully embraces her pop sensibilities. Added to her tongue-in-cheek lyrics, which come across like a modern-day ‘You’re So Vain’ (“Everyone knows someone who kills the buzz / Every time they open up their mouth”), ‘High Horse’ is joyously fun.”
NME also named Musgrave’s album, ‘Golden Hour’ one of the best of 2018, writing: “Making ridiculously fun country music incorporating disco beats, octave-hopping vocal manipulation, and plain-talking snapshots of the world around her, Kacey Musgraves is rightly basking in her very own ‘Golden Hour’ thanks to her most recent album. With stone cold bangers like ‘High Horse’ and ‘Butterflies’ who can resist?”
