Kacey Musgraves Covers Willie Nelson, Releases Music Video

Country darling Kacey Musgraves is an icon in the making, and earlier today she released a video for her cover of Willie Nelson’s classic hit, “Are You Sure.”

Originally appearing as the bonus track on Musgraves’ recent album (Beauty Pageant), the singer-songwriter’s cover of “Are You Sure” is as slow and heartbreaking as Willie Nelson’s original recording. The video finds Musgraves performing the song, along with a little help from Nelson, in a rundown saloon that feels like the perfect accompaniment to the message of the song. You can view the clip below.
