Willie Nelson is famous for many things. He’s a great songwriter. At the same time, his voice and guitar, Trigger, are instantly recognizable. However, one thing that everyone knows about Willie is how much grade-A pot he smokes. Even people who have never heard his music know that he has some of the best herb this side of Jamaica. Toby Keith and Scott Emerick co-penned a song about how high they got with Willie. Kacey Musgraves is another country star who knows just how hard Willie parties.

Kacey Musgraves had an epic night out with Willie after the 2019 CMA Awards. Even without partying with the Red-Headed Stranger, it would have been a great night for her. Musgraves joined Nelson on stage to sing “Rainbow Connection.” On top of that, she took home three CMA Awards that night. She won Female Vocalist of the Year and the International Achievement Award. Her song “Rainbow,” won Music Video of the Year. She could have packed it in and went home right after the show and it still would have been a night to remember. However, that’s not at all what happened.

Kacey Musgraves was on The Late Late Show with James Corden a few weeks after the CMA Awards. During her appearance, she talked about her night on the town with Willie Nelson. Well, she told Corden all that she could remember about the night.

Kacey Musgraves Partied with Willie Nelson

James Corden started the conversation by bringing up the tweet that Kacey Musgraves posted the day after the 2019 CMA Awards show. It read, “Can you die of a hangover? Asking for a friend who is actually me.” Corden had to know “What happened after the show?”

Kacey Musgraves said, “Well, directly after the show I went to Willie Nelson’s bus.” That was all Corden needed to hear. He knew that Musgraves had a legendary night of partying. She went on to say that she brought Willie some pizza and they hung out on his bus for a while. After that, she said that she doesn’t remember many fine details about the night.

Corden interrupted, saying, “That’s because you smoked loads of weed.” Kacey Musgraves replied, “100 percent.” She was completely stoned before they left the bus to hit the town. She and Willie Nelson went out and hit a few of Music City’s honky-tonk bars.

Kacey Musgraves said, “The next thing I know, I’m in this barn and Reese Witherspoon is playing bongos. Gigi Hadid is also playing bongos. I’m singing with Ronnie Dunn.”

Kacey Musgraves said the next thing she knew, she woke up. Apparently, she woke up with a massive hangover. However, it seems like a fair trade. Honky tonking with Willie Nelson, singing with Ronnie Dunn, and hanging out with Reese Witherspoon and Gigi Hadid sounds like an epic night.
