'I’m feelin reflective and wanted to say thank you to everyone that cares about my music and boygenius,' she said.

She followed this up with a sentimental Facebook post on Sunday, March 3. The musician said she was also celebrating the sixth anniversary of her album Historian and the first anniversary of Boygenius' hit single "Not Strong Enough."

"I’m feelin reflective and wanted to say thank you to everyone that cares about my music and Boygenius. It is not lost on me what a rare experience I’m getting to live," she said.

"The past year has been unbelievable, more like a dream than reality. But I have kept some of the carnations you threw during 'We’re In Love' and they are very real to me. I hold them tightly. I have vivid memories of people singing along, blue lights during 'True Blue,' Phoebe crowdsurfing, and Julien throwing her birthday cake into the audience," Dacus continued.

"We shared the stage with some of my favorite musicians of all time and played every venue I would’ve put on the most far reaching bucket list. I feel lucky and grateful today, and most days."

She concluded: "I’ll love Phoebe and Julien til the end of time. We’ll be missing you. Long live Boygenius."
