Musgraves pays tribute to actress Robin Wright’s nude performance on Twitter
“Saturday Night Live” viewers weren’t sure if Casey Musgraves was actually naked during her musical performance over the weekend — and it turns out she absolutely was.
During the season 47 premiere, in which Owen Wilson took over hosting duties, Musgraves appeared in nothing but shoes and guitar, giving an emotional rendition of “Justified” from his fifth studio album, “Star-Crossed”.
“She was naked,” a Musgraves representative confirmed. Diversity. “Caution was taken, and it happened for the first time on the show.”

Musgraves’ performance was inspired by actress Robin Wright’s portrayal of Jenny Gump in the 1994 Oscar-winning film “Forrest Gump”, Musgraves’ stylist, Erica Claude, confirmed in a series Instagram Photos.
His rep also said that once Musgraves was finished with his set, he was immediately covered with towels so that audience members could not catch a glimpse.

In the film, Wright appears naked during a strip club performance of Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind” as the lighting of the stage sets the mood while she carries herself on a stool.
