Kacey Musgraves has One Direction for next summer: Touring with Harry Styles

Kacey Musgraves has One Direction for next summer: Touring with Harry StylesABC/Paula LoboKacey Musgraves may be a self-proclaimed “Dime Store Cowgirl” who doesn’t fancy herself Pageant Material, but she just happens to have booked herself an opening slot on one of the hottest tours on the planet.

The multiple CMA and Grammy winner will open for British heartthrob Harry Styles on the U.S. and Canadian legs of his 2018 world tour.  Styles rose to fame as one of the members of chart-topping boy band One Direction and as, briefly, Taylor Swift's boyfriend.  His recently released debut solo album has gotten rave reviews.

Kacey will play her first concert with Harry on June 5, 2018 in Dallas, Texas, starting a run that will wrap July 13 in Los Angeles.

Tickets for Harry Styles Live on Tour go on sale next week, on Friday, June 16.

This isn’t Kacey’s first foray into the world of pop music tours, either. In 2014, she opened for Katy Perry on The Prismatic World Tour.
