On Monday evening, the country superstar performed at the Houston Rodeo and surprised fans by covering the Selena Quintanilla-Perez classic Como La Flor. It even drew praise from the late singer's sister, Suzette, who posted it on her Instagram, along with a thankful caption.

Check out her performance below.

"I'm about to go to Texas and open the Houston Rodeo, and in my home state that's a big deal", she shared.

The moment came just around 24 years after the Tejano icon's final performance, which took place at the Houston Astrodome on February 26, 1995, one month before she was tragically killed. "My whole family will be there, that's gonna be really fun". She played the Houston Astrodome on February 26, 1995, and was killed a month later. One of the highlights of her performance that year - which also included the seemingly ubiquitous disco medley - came in the form of a slow-burning, heartfelt rendition of "Como La Flor".

"Awww this makes me wanna shed a tear!"

Kacey Musgraves is still riding high after taking awards season by storm with her four Grammy wins and presenting at the 2019 Oscars.
