Its been an magical Christmas season for Kacey Musgraves so far. Her Christmas album A Very Kacey Christmas is a bonafide hit, and she’s had a successful tour to boot. Unfortunately, things look to have taken a turn for the worse for the country star.

During an evening confessional on Twitter, the “Dime Store Cowgirl” let fans know that her beloved three-legged pup, Pearl, was hit by a car. Luckily, Pearl made it out of the accident in one piece, but is suffering from a broken back leg. Even worse, the driver of the vehicle apparently drove away after injuring Pearl.

Sadly, this isn’t the first time that Pearl has been involved in an accident. She was hit by a car five years ago, forcing veterinarians to remove a leg.

Musgraves asked fans for prayers from her fans on Twitter, calling Pearl a “damn soulja” for surviving what her second run in with a car. Kacey later tweeted out that Christmas “really does make her cry” a reference to her single.

Musgraves seems hopeful that Pearl will eventually make a full recovery, but that didn’t stop her from being bummed out. Still, she managed to poke fun at herself in her most recent tweet, saying her evening tweets were “really emo.”

Here’s to hoping Pearl makes a full and quick recovery before Kacey gets any more Christmas blues.
