KACEY MUSGRAVES REVISITS "WORLD" FOR EARTH DAY

To celebrate Earth Day, Kacey Musgraves has released a reimagined version of “Oh, What a World,” dedicated to the planet and the heroes on the front lines during the global pandemic.

“In the face of a pandemic that has brought cities to their knees, a song can feel small,” she says of “Oh, What a World 2.0 (Earth Day Edition).” “A melody can seem insignificant. This is a global moment of acknowledgment and respect for the power of nature and for so many of us—extreme challenges and sadness. But in the midst of all the loss and uncertainty there are signs everywhere of human compassion and renewal.”

The original appeared on her Grammy-winning 2018 release Golden Hour (MCA Nashvile).

“Right now, there are so many brave people that deserve Medals of Honor: the nurses, doctors, grocers, the delivery and truck drivers, cashiers, gas station attendants, the scientists, restaurant workers, the single parents, and so many others. I’m just a songwriter but my hope is that if I bring the light I have in my spirit to the table, maybe it could be a form of energy that lifts someone else’s spirit for a moment. ‘Oh, What a World’—dedicated to our planetary home and all the quiet heroes this Earth Day: you’re the northern lights in our skies.”
