“Can you die from a hangover?” Kacey Musgraves tweeted the day after the Country Music Awards. “Asking for a friend who is actually me.” If you were curious about what put the country star into such a state, look no further: Musgraves, Reese Witherspoon, and Gigi Hadid’s wild night after the CMAs was just explained in detail by Musgraves herself.
While on The Late Late Show with James Corden Thursday night, Musgraves explained the backstory behind that tweet — and it’s just as epic as we’d hoped. “Directly after the show, I went to Willie Nelson’s bus,” Musgraves explained. “I brought him some pizza…and then, I don’t know really what happened.” Sounds like the start of a promising night!
“We leave, we hit some Nashville honky-tonks, it’s really fun,” the 31-year-old continues. “The next thing I know, I’m in this barn, and Reese Witherspoon is playing bongos, Gigi Hadid is also playing bongos, I’m singing with [country singer] Ronnie Dunn. It’s like, this … I don’t know! And then, yeah, I woke up.” And minutes later, presumably, fired up Twitter.
Curious what exactly Musgraves was drinking? She gives a hint when host Corden asks her favorite hangover remedies. “Gatorade,” she offers at first, “but also just not drinking. I mean, just don’t poison yourself…Just don’t be an a**hole and just drink loads, just buckets of tequila. Just don’t do that.”
Want to drink tequila with Reese Witherspoon? We do too! But here’s the next best thing: Reese’s very own tequila cocktail recipe — so at least you’re drinking what she is, miles and miles away.
