Kacey Musgraves new album Golden Hour is out now, and the East Texas native has been making the media rounds to promote it. Most recently it was a stop on Ellen. Last night (April 4) she performed her Bee Gees-inspired single “High Horse."

"One day I was out at the barn watching this stallion charging powerfully from one end of the arena to the other, bucking and galloping at full speed all alone. Though I was 'safe' on the other side of the arena wall, it kinda scared me when he came flying toward me..barely stopping in time. My riding teacher saw him coming at me and yelled at me to move away," she writes.

"I said 'I’m fine! The gate is closed!' to which she said, 'Girl - when they wanna go they will go...there ain’t no point in even shuttin’ the gate.' It really made a mark on me when she said that and I wrote it down. SPACE COWBOY came a couple days after with @shanemcanally + @lukerobert. Make peace with what doesn’t belong. You’ll find something better."
