Kacey Musgraves will release her new album "Star-Crossed" Friday, following her super-successful 2018 LP "Golden Hour," which topped the charts and went on to win the Grammy for Album of the Year at the 61st Grammy Awards. It also won Album of the Year at the 52nd Annual Country Music Association Awards.

"Star-Crossed" also comes not long after Musgraves announced the project just last month. She released two singles, the title track and "Justified," as well as teasing an accompanying film that will hit Paramount+ on Friday. She's opened up about the project, saying it was inspired by her breakup and divorce from her singer Ruston Kelly.

Though "Star-Crossed" might be her saddest and most personal album to date, Musgraves is no stranger for powerful and emotional songs. Below is a list of her 10 best songs, including some singles, her gay anthem and breakthrough song "Follow Your Arrow" and more!

10. "Justified"

09. "Keep it to Yourself"

08. "High Time"
