Country music's Barbie, Kacey Musgraves, is no longer single. After her divorce in 2020 from Ruston Kelly, her husband of two years, Musgraves has found love again, she confirmed in a recent interview with the New York Times which was released on Thursday, August 26. The news comes two days after Musgraves shared 15 video posts, each containing a single lyric from her currently unnamed single that referenced the end of her marriage with Ruston. The track will be a part of her fifth studio album which she promised will be a certified "post-divorce album".

The lyrics include, "Let me set the scene/ Two lovers ripped right at the seams/ They woke up from the perfect dream/ And then the darkness came/ I signed the papers yesterday/ You came and took your things away/ Moved out of the home we made/ And gave you back your name/ What have we done?/ Did we fly too high?/ Just to get burned by the sun?/ No one's to blame/ 'Cause we called all the angels to save us/ Called the by name/ But I guess they got lost." In another interview, Musgraves said she's perceived as a "starry-eyed, rose-colored glasses kinda girl, the 'Golden Hour' girl," but with the new album, her attempt would be "bursting the f-cking bubble."

Who is Kacey Musgraves' new boyfriend Cole Schafer?

Musgraves confirmed she is dating Cole Schafer, weeks after speculations were rife that the duo was an item. The 'Follow Your Arrow' hitmaker's new beau is a poet by profession who writes under the name January Black. Speaking to Times, she said they saw each other for the first time at a crowded restaurant. “He did not know who I was, which I loved,” she said adding she feels "overwhelmed" with how "self-centered" being an artist can be. 

Coming to Schafer, he is a writer who works in advertising and poetry is his passion. He has also penned three books titled 'After Her', 'Quarantine Dreams', and 'One Minute, Please?'. Schafer has authored a copywriting and marketing guide titled 'How to write copy that sell like a Florida Snow Cone Vendor on the hottest day of the year' and a freelancing business guide titled 'Freelancing your way to $100,000. 

However, Schafer appears to have saved his best words for Musgraves, the posts he writes in her honor which are supported by beautiful pictures of them together are nothing short of magical. For instance, for her 33rd birthday, Schafer wrote, "Here’s to you looking to your right when you stepped into F***. Here’s to you writing me back. Here’s to your jawline that chaps my lips and your hair I can’t keep my hands out of. Here’s to your aesthetic and your art is a close second to your heart. Here’s to you making it through thirty-two and here’s to you making history in thirty-three. It’s been so damn pretty falling for you, Kacey." In another post, he expressed a lot by saying nothing but "I'm trying like hell not to write about her."
