Katy Perry is taking things Western.

On Wednesday, the 38-year-old gave her Instagram followers a peek at her recent visit to the Carriage and Western Art Museum in Santa Barbara, Calif., with several selfies and clips from her night out.

The "Teenage Dream" and "Dark Horse" singer looked stunning wearing a sparkly silver Stetson, along with a silver chainmail bodysuit and black pants featuring fringe.

Perry paired her getup with a silver dangly tassel earrings and let her wavy dark locks fall long over her body. She also added a dark sharp eyeshadow look for a touch of glam.

"Advice fer the new yer: Don't squat with yer spurs on, buddy," Perry captioned her post, imitating a country accent.

On top of being a mother to two-year-old Daisy, whom she shares with 45-year-old fiancé Orlando Bloom, and getting ready for another leg of her Las Vegas residency, Perry has been recently tapping into her country side.

In November, the singer attended the 56th Country Music Association Awards in Nashville to perform a duet, "Where We Started," on-stage with Thomas Rhett, 32.

For the performance, Perry rocked another country-style outfit, this time a strapless denim gown featuring a dramatic distressed train. Its high slit showed off fishnet tights and a knee-high black boot, while Perry paired the look with a black Stetson and a black choker necklace.

But in September, Perry opened up the difficulties of balancing her busy life and being a new mom.

"I am working a lot. I’ve always worked a lot," Perry said on the "Smartless" podcast.

"I have a wonderful nanny but I don't have a full-time nanny because I feel like if I had a full-time nanny ... I'd never be able to know how to care for my daughter like I'm meant to, and therefore any day I get off I'm just in mom mode."

In the past, Perry also spoke on Chelsea Handler's podcast, "Life Will Be the Death of Me," about becoming maternal.

My definition of success is just her happiness," Perry said of her daughter. "Her happiness really gives me that joy. But, a lot of B.S. just falls away [after becoming a mom]. Stuff that you thought was important really was never important. You don’t have time for any sort of energetic drama that's not important in your family. Your family really starts to become first.

"My daughter has reshaped my life, my perspective. She's given me a love I've never had before."
