Kacey Musgraves opened the doors to the peaceful Nashville sanctuary she purchased following her divorce from musician Ruston Kelly in 2020 and gave a tour to Architectural Digest.

The 33-year-old country singer sought out a serene space when she bought the 3,500-square-foot home in the middle of her divorce and while writing her fifth studio album, Star Crossed. 

‘I wanted a place that felt like me where I could express myself without having to think about another person and what they might want,’ she said. ‘This felt like a new beginning.’

Kacey kept some of her flare throughout the home, though, with a framed half-joint she smoked with Willie Nelson, a collection of crystals and a powder room covered in nude sketches from a local artist.

Musgraves took a step back from her usually maximalist style to create a space with interior designer Lindsay Rhodes that reflected a calmer, more focused mindset.

‘There are a lot of orbs and circles in the house,’ Musgraves said. ‘I was writing the album at the same time I was moving into the home, and there were a lot of themes that were kind of presenting themselves [in both projects]. 

‘This theme of full-circle-ness kept appearing, and I had some spiritual experiences that involved orbs—I had a psychedelic plant therapy session in which people from my past kept presenting themselves to me in the form of orbs.’ 

She added: ‘Without running the risk of sounding like an absolute psycho, it was really transformative for me.’  

One thing that was important for Kacey while designing her space, was keeping her memories alive in every way possible. She showed off a photo of her ‘bada** mom’ smoking a cigarette while wearing a lettermen’s jacket while cheerleading. 

Kacey also recalled a time when she was smoking with legendary musician Willie Nelson, a memory she will never forget.

‘He rolled this huge fatty,’ she recalled, ‘and we all sat around and smoked it with him, and then he said, “Save the rest for another time,” and I did.’

Kacey had planned to create a room full of nude sketches, but was delighted to see that her vision had already started taking place in the home when she first toured. 

‘I’d started collecting nude sketches because I had this vision of hanging them floor to ceiling in a bathroom, but I hadn’t done it,’ she said. ‘And then it was somehow here, already manifested, almost exactly how I’d pictured it. It’s one of my favorite things about the house.’
