Kacey Musgraves surprised fans with a cover of “Como La Flor” by late Latin music icon Selena at the Houston Rodeo on Monday night.
The country star, fresh off her four Grammy wins and an appearance at the Oscars this month, belted out the Tejano classic to the delight of the crowd of over 55,000 during her debut performance at the Houston Rodeo.
“I love the Queen Selena just as much as you do,” Musgraves said during the performance.
The 30-year-old Texas native spoke to Entertainment Tonight at the Vanity Fair Oscars After Party about performing at the Houston Rodeo.
“I’m about to go to Texas and open the Houston Rodeo, and in my home state that’s a big deal,” she shared. “That was where Selena had her last concert. My whole family will be there, that’s gonna be really fun.”
Selena performed at the Houston Rodeo in 1995, it was one of her last performances before she was killed by her fan club manager.

“Awww this makes me wanna shed a tear! Takes me back,” she wrote. “A Big Big Thank you @spaceykacey for the love at the Houston Rodeo tonite with that SELENA Y LOS DINOS Jam!”
