Beyonce to Perform at the CMA Awards
If you believe the chatter, you'll want to tune in to catch Beyonce performing at the 2016 CMA Awards on Wednesday night (Nov 2). Multiple reports state that the superstar was spotted in Music City. Good Morning America has revealed that the pop-R&B icon is in town to sing at the 50th annual event.
A tweet from the ABC show reads:
There are no details on what, exactly, Beyonce will perform, but some suspect she may be teaming up with country icons the Dixie Chicks to sing her song "Daddy Lessons." This song has been labeled the 'country-flavored' tune on Texas native Beyonce's most recent album, Lemonade. The Chicks covered the song while on tour in the U.K. earlier this year.
Judging by the magnitude of this year’s 50th anniversary celebration — not to mention the success of similarly-huge pop star Justin Timberlake’s show-stopping collab with Chris Stapleton last year — anything could happen.
Even before the Beyonce rumor mill began to spin, the CMA Awards slate was jam-packed with more than 30 stars, both legends and newcomers, stepping into the spotlight to perform. Country royalty like Reba McEntire and Garth Brooks are confirmed to perform, as well as a host of modern artists like Maren Morris, Miranda Lambert and Eric Church.
