Kacey Musgraves Comforts Queer Teen in Gorgeous New “Rainbow” Music Video

"Everything is alright now."

Country queen Kacey Musgraves had a big night last night when she swept the Grammys winning all four of the categories she was nominated in—including Album of the Year for Golden Hour.

During the Grammys telecast, Kacey released a new music video for “Rainbow,” the emotional closer to her album, where she reminds listeners “it will all be alright,” and that there’s “always been a rainbow hanging over your head.”

 

The video shows different people stressed or depressed about their lives, including a new mother, an elderly woman, and a teenage boy who puts on lipstick in the bathroom—only to sit at the dinner table while his parents argue over him.

Aside from being a fierce musician, the Golden Hour girl has also been a vocal ally to the LGBTQ community, with her song “Follow Your Arrow” becoming an anthem for her queer fans. She also delivered a country disco track which Gay Twitter™ deemed the Song of the summer, and even sashayed down the runway as a guest judge on the latest season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.

In addition to releasing a music video for “Rainbow,” Kacey also performed the track on the Grammys, with an actual rainbow beaming out over the audience—as the crowd erupted in cheers.

Slay, queen, slay.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
