Kacey Musgraves’ ‘Space Cowboy’ Video Is the Crumbling of a Broken Relationship
Kacey Musgraves' "Space Cowboy" video shows us a woman who realizes her relationship is over. But she's not going to try and salvage what's left — she's leading this horse out the gate.
"Space Cowboy" is found on her latest album, Golden Hour, and was a co-write by Musgraves, Luke Laird and Shane McAnally. "You can have your space, cowboy / I ain't gonna fence you in," she sings definitively. "Go on, ride away in your Silverado / Guess I'll see you 'round again."
The distance between Musgraves and her man is clear. The "Space Cowboy" video is as melancholy as the song, utilizing dark coloring. The action climaxes with a big argument at dinner, and as her man rides off into the sunset on his horse, Musgraves is moving on at home, alone. See her stay stoic by herself in her bedroom, the bathtub and on her property, reflecting quietly on the relationship. She knew she was better off, and eventually, she is stronger after the breakup.

The nearly four-minute clip was shot in Mexico City and directed by Courtney Phillips (Marshmello, Khalid, Anne-Marie), and the vivid scenery alongside Musgraves' memorable lyrics strike a chord. While at first the video captures the vulnerability and loneliness of a broken relationship, Musgraves doesn't wither after letting her cowboy go for good.
