Amazon unwraps Kacey Musgraves Christmas special
James R | On 05, Nov 2019
Amazon Prime Video will unwrap a new Kacey Musgraves festive special this Christmas.
The online giant is teaming up with the Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter for The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show. The special, produced by Fulwell 73 Productions, marks Prime Video’s first foray into the holiday special space.
The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show is executive produced by Ben Winston, Emma Conway, Kacey Musgraves and Jason Owen. Narrated by Dan Levy (Schitt’s Creek), it invites fans in as Musgraves prepares for a Christmas gathering with a whimsical set and dazzling wardrobe influenced by the artist’s fresh aesthetic. Equal parts heart-warming and absurd, Musgraves will pay tribute to holiday specials of the past with a modern twist. Musgraves is joined by an all-star cast for performances of both classic and original holiday songs, including Fred Armisen on “Silent Night,” Leon Bridges on “Present Without A Bow,” Camila Cabello on “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree,” James Corden on “Let It Snow,” Zooey Deschanel on “Mele Kalikimaka,” Lana Del Rey on “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” and Troye Sivan on the world-debut of “Glittery.” Special guest Kendall Jenner also stops by to spread holiday cheer as Musgraves counts down to Christmas.
“I can say without a doubt that this project is unlike anything I’ve ever done before,” says Musgraves. “What started as the small seed of an idea one night over a year ago has turned into something I’m so proud of. Some truly brilliant comedic and musical guests are featured in the show – as well as my own Grandma. My vision was to bring my old Christmas album to life visually and create a modern and fashionable, fresh take on a classic format. It’s a nostalgic, Wes Anderson-inspired reimagining of the holidays. It’s heartfelt, funny, and most of all, real. I can’t wait to finally share.”
“Kacey Musgraves feels like a timeless, classic and potentially iconic, artist,” says Executive Producer Ben Winston. “We wanted to make a holiday special that felt equally timeless and classic. Paying tribute to the shows of the past, whilst setting a trend for the present, The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show is something we are proud of and very excited for an audience to see.”
The special will premiere globally on Friday 29th November.
