Kacey Musgraves faced backlash on social media after she didn't stand during Reba McEntire's ACM awards performance Sunday evening.
McEntire, who also hosted the show for the 16th time, took the stage to sing her newest hit, "Freedom," and while the majority of the audience stood on their feet for the country star's performance, eagle-eyed viewers noticed that Musgrave, did not.

Meanwhile, some social media users stated they "had no emotion" when Musgraves won album of the year award — for her record 'Golden Hour" — because she didn't stand for McEntire.
Kacey Musgraves sat down during Reba’s performance so I sat down and had no emotion when she won Album of the Year.— Chance WB Hurst 👁 (@ChanceWBHurst) April 8, 2019
During her opening monologue, McEntire mentioned Musgraves' multiple Grammy wins for her album "Golden Hour," noting the lack of women in this year's ACMs' entertainer of the year category, which Keith Urban ultimately won.
"It froze us women out of entertainer of the year," McEntire said, pointing out that it snowed in Las Vegas in recent weeks.
She continued: "But you know what that didn't bother Kacey Musgraves because she's been too busy carrying all her Grammys around."
Seriously...what the hell is wrong with Kacey Musgraves. Reba’s performing and she acts like she’s watching someone pick up their dry cleaning. Have a little respect...at least for someone who paved the way for you.— Maggie E. (@maggs06) April 8, 2019
How do you feel about Kacey's actions?
