Kacey Musgraves Performs 'Dime Store Cowgirl' at the 2015 CMA Awards

Kacey Musgraves was up for multiple prizes -- Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year, and Music Video of the Year -- at the 2015 CMA Awards. So it only made sense that the Texas native got to perform one of the jams on her 2015 album Pageant Material.

Backed by her band, Musgraves performed “Dime Store Cowgirl” to the prestigious award show crowd. As Musgraves’ breezy vocals sang, “You can take me out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of me,” Americana imagery drifted behind her on the big screen. If you had a good eye, you caught the photo of her kissing the cheek of Willie Nelson, with whom she collaborated on the album. And before the song ended, the backdrop shifted to Lisa Frank-inspired unicorns and rainbows.
