Kacey Musgraves has returned to the scene with her fifth album called “Star-Crossed,” featuring songs of heartbreak and striking fashion moments in the accompanying film directed by Bardia Zeinali.
The film, also of the same name, was released on Friday, along with the highly anticipated album. The 50-minute clip is a fantasy retelling of her relationship with ex-husband Ruston Kelly, whom she divorced in September 2020, exploring the emotions she felt before, during and after.
Musgraves and Kelly began dating in mid-2016, then were engaged by December of that year. In October 2017, the two wed in Tennessee. Last July, the couple filed for divorced, saying “it just simply didn’t work out” in a joint statement.
