Kacey Musgraves is proud of the way she loves.

Speaking to The Cut for their latest cover story, the country singer was asked if she regrets sharing her relationship with ex Cole Schafer online, as questions could be raised about the context of her upcoming album Deeper Well.

“I don’t regret living and loving as hard as I do,” Musgraves, 35, told the outlet. “Whenever I’m in a relationship, I’m all f---ing in."

"I think that hesitancy breeds hesitancy, and if you go in with something with one foot, it’s going to fail," she added.

Musgraves was first linked to Schafer in June 2021, about a year after the "Butterflies" singer announced her divorce from Ruston Kelly. According to The Cut, she and Schafer broke up while Musgraves was recording her upcoming album in New York City.

“After divorce, it’s like on one hand I do want to self-protect, but at the same time, if your heart is feeling open, I think you have to just show up for it," she told the outlet. "I’m still trying to figure out the balance of that.”

And though her forthcoming album, Deeper Well, is not about her split — it still helped her find closure.

“Operating from your high self is having the courage to remove resistance to growth, whether that be people or habits or whatever," she explained, referencing a recent meditation workshop she learned.

“I’m like, 'We’re all so concerned with attaining, attaining, attaining more and more and more.' And if you look at it in that sense, it’s never enough," she added. "If you look at it as ‘I’m already the ultimate rich. I already have everything I need,’ it just takes that away.”

Deeper Well is set for release on March 15 and she's released two tracks, "Deeper Well" and "Too Good to Be True" thus far. She'll also kick off a Deeper Well tour in April.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 earlier this month, she opened up about how the album provokes vulnerability and connection between her and her listeners.

“I really do believe in the biggest, most powerful form of connection is vulnerability,” began the Grammy winner. “So it's like on one hand, I think there's hardly ever any mystery left in life, especially with artists. But at the same time, we're here to connect.”

She explained that artists and audiences “all experience the same emotions.” Musgraves revealed that she wants to “f---king put it out there” and not “hold back.” However, she revealed to Lowe, that being vulnerable “can be scary” because she is “kind of a private person.”

“I really enjoy and revere my privacy and having something just for me and my personal life. I'm really kind of a homebody,” confessed the singer.

“And as you get ready to release a project, this tsunami of madness is coming to work me. And you're going to be very public-facing again,” she revealed. “And that can be — that's kind of hard for me sometimes.”
