BEYONCE performs on Country Music Awards and the reaction was everything

Bey at CMA

(BlacksinHollywood.com) – When Pop Singer, Beyonce dropped a country tune inside her new visual album Lemonade, it was the biggest crossover news in country music since Justin Timberlake brought down the house at the Country Music Association Awards last year alongside Chris Stapleton, who borrowed their song almost entirely from Etta Mae’s “I’d Rather Go Blind.” (Watch her big CMA performance and ALL the videos below)

While some make think Beyonce’s Texas Bama roots inspired the songs, the truth is Black people invented country and the blues. Beyonce spins a tale a father who taught his daughter to defend herself in “Daddy Lessons” and it works.

Country singer Dierks Bentley said he loved the whole album, but when he heard “Daddy Lessons,” he immediately thought it was a country song.
