“Mexico is in my heart. I feel it. Even though I’m from San Antonio I still have a big feeling for Mexico. That’s why I go for the Chivas and not for the America,” De La Cruz joked. “[I wear the charro outfit] because it shows my culture, it’s a part of my life. It’s a part of me, actually. When I see somebody wearing a traje and it’s missing a gala [or] you see a gala hanging off, I actually think that it’s kind of disrespectful to the Mariachi."
