Singer Kacey Musgraves has had a great year, from winning the Grammy for album of the year in February for her critically acclaimed "Golden Hour" to her star-studded new holiday special on Amazon Prime Video, "The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show." "

But it turns out that the 2019 country pop artist's favorite moment is a Los Angeles company that put them in the national spotlight when she toured the city in the summer: Tom & # 39; s One Hour Photo Studio and Lab in Koreatown.

"We had to find a one-hour photo spot very quickly," Musgraves told TV presenter Ellen DeGeneres in a segment broadcast on Tuesday. "And (my sister) found a place that happened to be open and that could turn the photos around in a short time."

After she had turned off the film, the Musgraves sister called her: & This guy was so cute! You have to come when we pick up the movie. You must come with me. You fall in love with the place. & # 39; & # 39;

And yes, Musgraves did that.

"The place is great," she told DeGeneres, a bit of the store's history and what it does: the grower Tom Tuong, opened the store in 1990 and creates his own cheerful backgrounds for photo shoots.

"It's just very nostalgic, the whole thing. And Tom is a sweetheart and a very, very hard worker," said Musgraves. Musgraves' sister shared the private photos that she had developed with The Times in Tom's store.

Musgraves and her sister tried to set up Tuong with an Instagram profile after admitting he didn't have one, but they couldn't figure out how to use his Android. They waited until they came home to create an account for him.

“And within a few days it collected thousands of followers! We were blown away a bit, & Musgraves said. Within a few hours people were standing outside the shop on Beverly Boulevard. And the business has been flourishing ever since.

"There is a huge nostalgic renaissance going on … and it felt like my generation would really appreciate this company," said Musgraves.

The "High Horse" singer frankly told how the story of Tuong felt her personally.

"I come from a household of small business owners, my parents are, and I know first-hand what it's like when people choose to put their money there versus a place that is more convenient or larger," she said.

Starting Tuesday morning, Tom & # 39; s Instagram account has 87,700 followers and 157 messages with colorful portraits from the 80s of couples, dogs, couples and their dogs, friends, singles and even various A-list celebrities such as Oscar winner Brie Larson and actress and former late-night host Busy Philipps.
