She’s back to dating less than a year after finalizing her divorce from fellow singer Ruston Kelly. The two married in October 2017 before calling it quits in July 2020, saying in a joint statement, “it just simply didn’t work.”
Last weekend, Kacey Musgraves was pictured holding hands with a new man, identified as writer Cole Schafer, while strolling around Downtown New York.
Her beau looked fresh in his white sweater, light blue camo shorts, and white shoes.

She accessorized with a thick-strapped beige crossbody bag and elevated the sporty look with a gold necklace, a pair of gold hoop earrings, and a green beaded bracelet.
Beauty-wise, she wore her long brunette tresses straight and highlighted her features with winged eyeliner, mascara, and pink lipstick.

Kacey was also spotted wearing the same slides while taking a stroll around NYC with her new beau last week.
This time, she wore them with an easy-breezy number featuring a lightweight leopard-print button-up shirt and coordinating pants.

That same day, Kacey made a quick outfit change as she headed to dinner with Cole.
The High Horse singer looked summer-ready in a white tank top layered underneath a Hawaiian-printed shirt. She then paired the look with daisy dukes that allowed her to showcase her flawless legs and tiny waist.

Adding some glam to her casual dinner date look, Kacey styled with a delicate gold necklace and thick gold hoops.
She carried her essentials in her beige crossbody bag and kept a simple look with neutral makeup.
