Kacey Musgraves had a big night on Wednesday — and she was still feeling it the morning after.

Hours after winning two awards at the 2019 Country Music Association Awards, the 31-year-old singer joked about having maybe had a few too many drinks the night before.

“Can you die from a hangover?” she tweeted. “Asking for a friend who is actually me.”

At the CMAs, Musgraves — who already picked up four Grammy awards earlier this year — won for music video of the year for “Rainbow” as well as the prize for female vocalist of the year.

While accepting the award for female vocalist, Musgraves touched on the importance of the “female creative spirit” in the world.

“Words can’t express just how meaningful and truly unbelievable this past couple of years have been,” Musgraves said. “But ultimately I just want to say that I feel that the female creative spirit and female energy is really needed right now, it’s really important, I feel like it’s something that Earth needs.”

“So whether it’s me that’s up here or any of the other women in this category, I just think that it’s a beautiful thing and I’m very appreciative,” Musgraves continued. “Thank you so much, I love country music. I have an amazing team; they work their asses off,” she added.

Their mutual affection was on display after their “Rainbow Connection” duet, when Musgraves blew a kiss to Nelson. In a sweet moment that viewers at home didn’t see, Nelson went on to blow one back before Musgraves stepped closer to plant an affectionate kiss on the country legend’s cheek.
