Kacey Musgraves has created a candle inspired by her 2018 song Slow Burn.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the country music star announced that she had teamed with bosses at Los Angeles-based brand Boy Smells on a candle called Slow Burn – with the name taken from the opening track of her Grammy Award-winning album, Golden Hour.

“I brought my song Slow Burn to life in the form of a smell. The scentiment (sic) is exactly what the song sounds like. It’s a little dank. A little crisp. Androgynous. Floaty. Earthy. Grounded,” she wrote alongside an image of the product. “It’s the smell of a fire faintly drifting on the breeze as you walk to your favourite bar down the street and cherish slow sips of your favourite wine. Briefly thinking about strangers on the other side of the globe in Beijing rushing into work but you’re right here, admiring the fading colours of the disappearing sunset and enjoying exactly where you are in all senses.”

According to a description on the Boy Smells website, the Slow Burn candle features notes of incense, black pepper, elemi, guaiac, raspberry, tonka, amber and smoked papyrus. It comes in a matte gradient glass tumbler with metallic label and is priced at $39 (£30).

And while the Slow Burn candle sold out within hours of going online, it is expected to be restocked shortly.

“This was really a fun creative challenge for me and I’m a big fan of @boy__smells – a queer brand with Texas roots. Hope you love what we created. Burn in a hurry,” the 31-year-old added.

Kacey’s entry into the candle market comes after Gwyneth Paltrow hit headlines last month when she released a candle called This Smells Like My Vagina, which included notes of geranium and bergamot, on her Goop website.

Kacey Musgraves paid homage to her album Golden Hour with her choice of outfit for the 2019 Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards on Sunday night (07Apr19).

The singer-songwriter collected the prizes for Album of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year at the event held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, months after she picked up four Grammy Awards for the record.

Kacey made a splash on the red carpet when she stepped out in a pastel-hued ombre suit featuring dramatic pleated sleeves, with the ensemble originally included in the Christian Cowan x The Powerpuff Girls collection.

“I saw it and immediately was like, ‘This has my name written all over it.’ It even kind of reminds me of the album cover a little bit. A nod to the fan on the album cover, just all the pleats,” she told People, referring to Golden Hour’s cover, in which she is depicted holding a pink fan with a blue sky in the background. “I love a gradient, I love anything ombre… and anything rainbow, clearly.”

Kacey look was put together by stylist Erica Cloud, while she had her flowing brunette locks styled by Giovanni Delgado and her flawless make-up, including a wash of pale pink eyeshadow, completed by make-up artist Moani Lee.

Maren Morris also went with a pastel look, opting for a lilac dress with frill detailing from Christian Siriano, and captioned a snap of herself on Instagram, “LILAC for ACMS. thank you @csiriano for making this dress in this gorgeous colour for me!”

Meanwhile, Nicole Kidman turned heads in a black and silver ensemble from Christopher Kane for the bash, where she supported her husband Keith Urban, and Miranda Lambert dazzled in a neon green number from Alex Perry.

Kelly Clarkson was all smiles in a black lace dress from Alexander McQueen, and Lauren Alaina proved her style credentials in a monochromatic dress by Emil Couture.
