The entertainer sang a new version of her song “Daddy Lessons” featuring the Dixie Chicks and got a lot of acclaim from fans.
Sadly, there was also backlash from some country music fans who said that Beyonce did not have a place at the show. After the backlash was heard, all evidence of the performance was seemingly erased from the CMAs’ website and social media accounts.
This move then received criticism and the CMA account on Facebook ended up sharing the Dixie Chicks‘ post about the performance.
The Country Music Association released this statement: “CMA has not erased any mentions of Beyonce’s performance on the CMA Awards. In advance of the broadcast, CMA removed a five-second promotional clip from ABC.com and CMA’s Facebook page. The promo was unapproved and CMA removed it prior to the broadcast. Beyonce’s performance with Dixie Chicks was a highlight of the evening and we are continuing to share the amazing full-length performance clip via our official social channels.”
DO YOU THINK Beyonce’s performance at the CMA Awards was appropriate?
