Kacey Musgraves covers Coldplay for Prince Harry and company

Posted on

When in London, do as the Londoners do.

That was the M.O. for Kacey Musgraves at last month’s Royal Variety Performance, during which the country star brought the house down with a poignant, restrained cover of Coldplay’s “Yellow.”

Clad in an elegant, yellow gown and accompanied by Misa Arriaga, Musgraves put a folky spin on the torch song that first put Chris Martin and his bandmates on the map.

Other performers at the yearly London event included One Direction, Elton John, and Kylie Minogue, while Prince Harry represented the royal family in the audience. Apparently Musgraves’ performance made an impression on him, as the two were captured high-fiving on Instagram.
