Hugely successful US country artist Kacey Musgraves has announced a UK tour for November which will see the Texas native and Grammy Award winner performing at Manchester’s Albert Hall on 16 November.

The news follows the release of her latest album Pageant Material.

The tour marks a return to the UK for Kacey Musgraves who last year performed at Manchester’s Ritz and was also featured at Glasstonbury and Radio 2’s Festival In A Day at Hyde Park.

The singer songwriter has earned massive critical acclaim since the release of her stunning album, Same Trailer Different Park, including two Grammys at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards (Song of the Year for Merry Go Round and Best Country Album) and 2014 ACM Album of the Year.

It’s been years since Musgraves lived in Golden, Texas, her childhood home of roughly 600 people, but the whirlwind that followed Same Trailer Different Park and sent Musgraves halfway across the world on tour made her think hard about where she came from.   Pageant Material  pays tribute to those Bible Belt roots, shining a light on a hometown girl who’s grown up, expanded her worldview and done a lot of living since skipping town. It’s an album about where she’s from and where she’s going; full of autobiographical details that are humorous one minute and heartwarming the next.

The full tour listing:

9 November   –   Gateshead, The Sage
10 November   –  Birmingham, The Institute
12 November   –   Dublin, Academy
15 November   –   Glasgow, ABC
16 November   –   Manchester, Albert Hall
18 November   –   London, Royal Albert Hall

Tickets for Kacey Musgraves performing at Manchester’s Albert Hall on 16 November go on sale at 9am on Friday 26 June priced £22.50.
