Between her sophomore record Pageant Material and her Grammy-winning 2018 album Golden Hour, Kacey Musgraves released the 2016 seasonal set A Very Kacey Christmas, so her decision to stage an old-fashioned holiday special in 2019 isn't exactly a surprise. In many ways, The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show -- a special televised on Amazon, then released as an album -- builds upon the retro charms of A Very Kacey Christmas, replicating its affectionately tongue-in-cheek blend of old-fashioned show biz corn and seasonal warmth. It also replicates six of that album's songs, half of them delivered as a duet with another celebrity. That's just the tip of the iceberg in terms of star power here. Famous people from the stage, screen, and internet are here. It's a cannily diverse cast, ranging from comedians James Corden and Fred Armisen to internet-personality-turned-musician Troye Sivan; soul singer Leon Bridges and Latin pop vocalist Camila Cabello, to Zooey Deschanel and Lana Del Rey rounding out the rest of the cameos. (Kendall Jenner's wordless appearance doesn't make it to the album; it's the only edit from the special.) The show is filled with gags and stunts, all of which are campily charming onscreen and a bit irritating on record. If this was whittled down to just the duets -- save the yuk-filled collaborations with Corden and Armisen, which are both variations on a theme -- it would be a sweet, beguiling EP, but this is filled with jokes and Dan Levy's narration, all of which makes sense when paired with visuals, but drag down an otherwise fun listen.
