Kacey Musgraves cover[edit]

The song was performed live by country singer and Texas native Kacey Musgraves at the 2019 Rodeo Houston, exactly twenty four years after Selena's final performance in which she, too, had sung the song at the event. Musgraves' cover has been praised by both critics and fans as well as Selena's family, who were in attendance the night of the rodeo.
