Kacey Musgraves Delivers Dreamy Flaming Lips Cover at Bonnaroo 2019 [WATCH]
Kacey Musgraves took the Bonnaroo stage on Saturday (June 15) to deliver a dazzling set of Golden Hour mainstays such as "Slow Burn," and amid a packed set of highlights, her cover of the Flaming Lips' "Do You Realize" stood out. Press play above to watch a clip of her performance, which the Flaming Lips' own Wayne Coyne posted to Instagram.
"Yesssss!!!!! We love you [Kacey]," the multi-instrumentalist raved in his post's caption, flanked by an abundance of heart and prayer hands emojis. Musgraves' aesthetic was a perfect match for the dreamy, psychedelic vibe of the indie pop song, which originally came out in 2002 off of the Flaming Lips' Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots album.
As she performed the song, Musgraves was joined by a small group of rainbow-clad backup dancers chosen from Bonnaroo's Pride parade. The festival hosted its first-ever Pride parade in 2019, formed with the intention of "bringing together revelers of every expression into a radical roaming dance party in celebration of our diversity, sexuality and humanity," according to House of Yes, the club that hosted the parade.
Musgraves' all-genre appeal has been a consistent theme throughout 2019, beginning with her sweeping victories at this year's Grammy Awards in February. Two months later, she championed diversity at the 2019 ACM Awards after taking home the trophy for Album of the Year. Despite her cross-genre success, Musgraves has been clear about her desire to maintain her country roots: She recently contributed to Brooks & Dunn's Reboot album with a reinterpreted version of "Neon Moon."
Meanwhile, the singer recently added dates to her Oh, What a World Tour through September of 2019.
