Currently on the second leg of her "Oh What a World: Tour," the Texas native announced the San Diego show back in April.

If you haven't noticed, the singer/songwriter has been on quite the tear lately: Since 2013, she's won six Grammy Awards, four Country Music Association Awards, and three Academy of Country Music Awards.

She made headlines with her amazing performance at the 2019 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, and her latest album, 2018's "Golden Hour," debuted at No. 4 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart.

As far as we can tell, the Thursday night show was Musgraves' first-ever headlining show in San Diego!

"Golden Hour" has earned tons of critical acclaim since its release -- Stephen Erlewine of AllMusic called it "warm and enveloping, pitched halfway between heartbreak and healing-but [it] lingers in the mind because the songs are so sharp, buttressed by long, loping melodies and Musgraves' affectless soul baring."

It basically earned her a complete sweep of Album of the Year awards -- winning the honor at the 2018 CMA Awards, Apple Music Awards, Grammy Awards and the 2019 ACM Awards.

After issuing demo albums beginning with 2002's "Movin' On," she signed to Mercury Nashville in 2012 and released her debut album "Same Trailer Different Park" the next year.

That record soared to No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and No. 2 on the Billboard 200. Her 2015 full-length effort, "Pageant Material" also topped the Billboard Country Albums chart. Her third studio album was 2016's "A Very Kacey Christmas."
