OMG! Just hours before country’s biggest stars are set to hit the stage at the CMAs, Beyonce has been announced as the special surprise opener of the awards show! Can you believe it? Click through for all the details!
This is seriously shocking! Who would ever think that Beyonce would perform at the County Music Association Awards? That’s what’s happening, though! The CMAs dropped an epic surprise just hours before the awards show, announcing that Beyonce would be opening in a performance with the Dixie Chicks. Whoa!
We never would have expected this appearance, seeing as Beyonce has never gone country! But Bey and the Dixie Chicks must have something special planned! It’s definitely going to be an intriguing watch. There’s speculation that Beyonce could have the Dixie Chicks join her on a performance of her Lemonade hit “Daddy Lessons”, which definitely has a little country twang to it. The Chicks covered the amazing song on their Summer 2016 tour! Sounds like a joint performance to open the CMAs, doesn’t it?
This isn’t the first time that pop stars have hopped on the CMAs stage to give special crossover performance. At the CMA Awards in 2015, Justin Timberlake performed an insanely cool medley with Chris Stapleton of their hits “Drink You Away” and “Tennessee Whiskey” before Chris basically took home every award.
It’s pretty standard for Beyonce to take over awards shows at this point, after stunning audiences with breathtaking performances everywhere she’s graced the stage. She performed a medley of hits from Lemonade for an amazing 17 minutes at the MTV Video Music Awards in August, leaving the audience speechless. Her powerful performance of “Freedom” with Kendrick Lamar at the BET Awards (another surprise appearance!) was striking!
