Kacey Musgraves Releases New Rendition of “Oh What a World” in Celebration of Earth Day [Watch New Video]

In celebration of Earth Day (April 22), Kacey Musgraves released a new rendition of her song, “Oh, What a World,” which she originally co-penned with Ian Fitchuk and Daniel Tashian for her 2018 album, Golden Hour.

Reimagined  as “Oh, What a World 2.0 (Earth Day Edition),” Kacey dedicated the song to the planet and all of the heroes on the front lines during the global pandemic. In addition to releasing the new rendition of the song, Kacey dropped a new video and issued a statement, which you can read below.

“There is a lot to feel downhearted about on this Earth Day. Everyone and everything feels out of balance. People are suffering and the future is uncertain.

“In the face of a pandemic that has brought cities to their knees, a song can feel small. A melody can seem insignificant. This is a global moment of acknowledgment and respect for the power of nature and for so many of us – extreme challenges and sadness. But in the midst of all the loss and uncertainty there are signs everywhere of human compassion and renewal.

“The earth is healing. Bluer skies hang over China and Los Angeles. Clearer water and a positive effect on wildlife is being seen. In spite of all its troubles, it’s still a wild, beautiful world and if you need proof, it’s out there. You just might have to look in a different corner of the sky.

“Right now, there are so many brave people that deserve Medals of Honor: the nurses, doctors, grocers, the delivery and truck drivers, cashiers, gas station attendants, the scientists, restaurant workers, the single parents, and SO many others. I’m just a songwriter but my hope is that if I bring the light I have in my spirit to the table, maybe it could be a form of energy that lifts someone else’s spirit for a moment. Oh, What a World – dedicated to our planetary home and all the quiet heroes this Earth Day: you’re the northern lights in our skies.”
