The Grammy-winning country star recently opened up about her divorce from Ruston Kelly, explaining that their marriage "just simply didn't work out."

"It's nothing more than that. It's two people who love each other so much, but for so many reasons, it just didn't work," Musgraves told Rolling Stone. "I mean, seasons change. Our season changed."

In the same interview, Musgraves shared a pre-fame story of when she was asked to show up to Blake Shelton's birthday party dressed as a French maid.

"Actually, I found out later it was Blake Shelton," Musgraves told Rolling Stone. "But the guy was like, 'Yeah, there's a birthday party at the Palm restaurant and it's a famous person, and they need a French maid to deliver balloons and sit on the birthday boy's lap.' I was like, 'Yeah, no. I'm not doing that.'"

Musgraves is currently working on a new album with Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk, the team behind her 2018 album Golden Hour.
