Everything you need to know about Kacey Musgraves' new album, star-crossed

Leave it to Kacey Musgraves to turn heartbreak into a perfect summer-fall album. Like so many of our favorite artists, she was busy writing and recording during quarantine. Now that the album is available for streaming and download, here's everything you should know before you blast it in your earbuds.  

1. Kacey's recently divorced
In July of 2020, Kacey announced that she was separating from her then-husband, Ruston Kelly. Themes of heartbreak and finding love again are sprinkled all throughout the 15 tracks, especially in the titular track one, "star-crossed."
