Kacey Musgraves is supporting others through song.

On Saturday, the country star, 31, virtually took part in the One World: Together at Home special from her home in Nashville, where she has been practicing social distancing.

“I just wanted to say a sincere thank you to all the people out there risking their lives to get everyone through this crazy time. Thank you, it means so much to me. I’ve also been really loving seeing everyone’s rainbows in their windows. It’s inspired me to sing this song for you,” she said.

Musgraves played the piano and sang her hit “Rainbow” from her Golden Hour album as photos of various rainbow drawings from around the world were shown. “It’s gonna be alright, stay strong and stay inside,” she said after her performance.

Musgraves’ musical contribution to the special will help raise money through the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund to support local and regional charities providing food, shelter and healthcare to those in need amid the ongoing health crisis.
