Kacey Musgraves Dazzles With 'Slow Burn' Performance at 2018 CMA Awards

After earning the prestigious album of the year honor at the 52nd annual Country Music Awards for her magnetic fourth LP Golden Hour, singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves took center stage to perform one of the song's standout tracks: "Slow Burn."

Playing guitar in a plush red velvet gown, Musgraves appeared visibly moved as she sang the mellow track about taking her time and savoring small moments -- and it's not surprising that her performance earned a standing ovation. Musgraves was the only female artist nominated for album of the year; she was also nominated for female vocalist of the year.  

Watch a clip of the dazzling performance above.
