Last night, Beyonce surprised a lot of people by performing a song from her album Lemonade on the Country Music Awards. Country music fans notoriously skew toward the more conservative side, something which goes against everything Beyonce stands for. However, on the 50th anniversary of the show, she teamed up to perform "Daddy Lessons" with the Dixie Chicks.

Not only did she show up, but she looked absolutely gorgeous in a shiny dress. Take a look at the video:

The point is that country music has wide influence. Country music and the blues (which was pioneered by African Americans), have the same roots. While there have been some successful African American country singers, they haven't been able to really break into it like they should. It also goes to show that Beyonce belongs everywhere she goes, including the stage at the CMAs. She really held her own with the Dixie Chicks.

Of course, the Dixie Chicks haven't always had the best luck either. When their lead singer spoke out against George W. Bush, country radio shunned them. 

Together, they created a bit of a scene on social media. While we won't post some of the tweets here, you can search for yourself to see the language that was directed toward them. Many people loved it, but there was definitely some backlash.

Another superstar also showed up, Taylor Swift, who presented the Entertainer of the Year Award. Taylor herself received the award a few times when she was a country singer.
