Golden Hour is the seventh studio album and fourth major label album by American country music artist Kacey Musgraves, released on March 30, 2018, through MCA Nashville. Musgraves co-wrote all 13 tracks and co-produced the album with Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk. The album debuted at number four on the US Billboard 200 and received widespread acclaim from music critics.

Musgraves wrote and recorded most of the songs from the album throughout 2017; about the writing process she said: “I have a lot more love songs this time around, and I’ve never been one to write a love song and really feel it.” She continued: “That probably sounds like the most depressing thing ever. [But] I’m coming off getting married and being in this golden hour of my personal life, where all these things are finally coming to fruition. I found myself inspired to write about this person and all these things he brought out in me that weren’t there before.” Some of the album was recorded in a studio above a horse stable owned by musician Sheryl Crow.
