Kacey Musgraves’ Near Death Experience

While shooting the music video for ‘Deeper Well,’ .Kacey Musgraves almost fell off a cliff.

About filming in Iceland, the superstar singer/songwriter admitted it was an extremely dangerous shoot that almost ended her life.

During her recent appearance on ‘The Tonight Show.’ Musgraves told Jimmy Fallon “We picked literally the worst possible week to go. It was high wind advisories — I almost got blown off that cliff.”“I was almost like, ‘This video will be my death announcement’. It was a sheer drop down to the ocean. It was treacherous. Even the locals were like, ‘This is scary.’”

Kacey also confirmed that her new song ‘Cardinal’ is inspired by late country music star John Prine.

Devastated by the 2020 loss of her friend and mentor who died at the age of 73 from COVID-19 complications, the musician stated that he inspired the first track of her new LP ‘Deeper Well’.

Musgraves said “When cardinals appear, angels are near. Unexplainable things started happening and cardinals started showing up on my doorstep soon after my good friend and mentor passed, John Prine.” “He always had a big connection to cardinals and felt that they were messengers from the spirit realm. He inspired this song, no doubt.”

In ‘Cardinal’, she sings: “I saw a sign / Or an omen / On the branches / In the mornin’ / It was right after I lost a friend / Without warning / Words unsaid / Scarlet red / Cardinal / Are you bringin’ me a message from the other side / Cardinal / Are you tellin’ me I’m on somebody’s mind / Don’t leave me behind.”

Musgraves was a massive fan of the country veteran with whom she befriended and collaborated with, joining him for a performance on a cruise in 2015 and on stage at a gig in in Colorado in 2017.
