While the Chicago Cubs were breaking their 108 year curse, Bey was onstage at the CMA's giving "Daddy Lessons."
The Texas native joined the Dixie Chicks for a rendition of the country ballad made popular on her "Lemonade" album. Crossing over genres, Beyoncé belted out lyrics like, "With his gun, with his head held high, he told me not to cry, Oh, my daddy said shoot."
The Dixie Chicks have been performing Bey's hit while on tour, returning to music several years after singer Natalie Maines spoke out about former President Bush during a London concert in the days before the US invasion of Iraq. "Just so you know," Maines told fans, we’re on the good side with y’all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas.”
While Beyonce didn't being home any awards--Entertainer of the Year went to Garth Brooks--the women from the Lone Star state definitely gave the Country Music Awards audience (and the BeyHive) some daddy lessons last night. See the whole performance here:
