That’s one cold burn.

As hundreds of thousands of Texas residents remain without water, heat and electricity in the aftermath of Winter Storm Uri, Kacey Musgraves devised a stylish way to raise relief funds for the Lone Star State — while simultaneously taking a dig at Sen. Ted Cruz’s decision to flee to Cancun, Mexico, with his family.

The 32-year-old Grammy winner — who grew up in Golden, Texas — announced her intention to sell charity T-shirts printed with “Cruzin’ for a Bruzin’” on Twitter Thursday afternoon, joking, “Link coming soon. Don’t RUN OFF anywhere…”

True to her word, Musgraves shared a shoppable link for the white ringer tee a few hours after, tweeting, “Texas is cold, I can be cold” — a play on the lyrics from her song “Slow Burn.”

Profits from the $29.99 tees, which will be available through Sunday, will directly support Texans in need through a number of charities: Feed The People Dallas, Casa Marianella and the American Red Cross of Central & South Texas.

“No actual bruisings plz,” the star noted on her site.

On Friday morning, Musgraves revealed that she’d already raised $50,000. “Life gave us lemons and I’m honestly just here innocently serving lemonade,” she told a fan.

Cruz, 50, is under fire for his decision to fly to Mexico amid his state’s historic winter weather crisis.

After blaming the getaway on his young daughters in a statement, the Republican lawmaker cut his trip short by two days, according to the Dallas Morning News, and returned to Houston Thursday night.

“It was obviously a mistake and in hindsight I wouldn’t have done it,” he told reporters outside the airport, according to the newspaper.
