Fans of Kacey Musgraves may have noticed a new lyric added to her song "High Horse" during her Sunday night headlining set at Weekend One of the Austin City Limits Music Festival. The 34-year-old country singer and songwriter took a moment during her performance to call out a well-known senator from her home state of Texas.

"'Cause everyone knows someone who kills the buzz, every time they open their mouth—Ted Cruz," Musgraves, a Golden, Texas native, told the audience as she sang the disco-pop track from her album "Golden Hour." In clips fans shared on social media, the crowd is heard cheering in response. "I said what I said," Musgraves reiterated.

Musgraves' fans swiftly took to social media to applaud the moment. "You can tell @KaceyMusgraves is a real Texan by the volume of her hair and how much she hates Ted Cruz," one fan wrote on Twitter.
