In 2016, Ruston Kelly made his official debut with the EP Halloween. That same year he met Kacey Musgraves — a country music star fresh off her fantastic sophomore album Pageant Material — and the two began writing together and then eventually dating. Kelly is now following their 2017 wedding and his wife’s 2018 Golden Hour with his own full-length album, Dying Star.
The 14 songs on the album, out today, were co-produced by Kelly and Jarrad K and feature backing vocals from Musgraves, Joy Williams, and Kelly’s sister, Abby Sevigny.
Fresh off a series of dates opening up for Brian Fallon, Kelly will embark on a headlining tour with support from Katie Pruitt in October, including a stop at Boot & Saddle on Oct. 26.
