Kacey Musgraves, winner of Grammys and eater of burgers, opened the show at RodeHouston on Monday.

The NRG Stadium, then known as the Houston Astrodome, was the last venue Selena played before her death in 1995. The concert was recorded and released in full in 2001 as a tribute to the late singer following her death. Musgraves referenced this while covering "Como La Flor" on Monday night, telling the crowd: ""I love the queen Selena just as much as you do!"

Suzette Quintanilla, Selena's sister, said on Instagram that the cover made her "wanna shed a tear" and thanked Musgraves "for the love."
