Earlier this week, the Recording Academy revealed their decision to exclude Kacey Musgraves' newest album, star-crossed, from consideration in country categories at next year's Grammy Awards ceremony.
The news sent fans reeling, and Kacey's label -- Universal Music Group Nashville -- also expressed their displeasure at the decision, with label president Cindy Mabe penning an open letter to the Recording Academy that made a case for star-crossed to be considered a country album.
Kacey released star-crossed last month. It's the follow-up to Golden Hour, which won her four Grammy trophies at the 2019 ceremony, including Country Album of the Year -- a title she won't be eligible for in 2022.
