[Blind Gossip] On The Country Music Awards last night, Beyonce performed with The Dixie Chicks. Not everyone was happy about it.
While the fans’ opinions of Beyonce’s presence and performance was mixed, we found out that one of the biggest country music stars in the world was genuinely upset by her presence.
He didn’t know she was going to perform until he got there. He said, “What the hell is she doing invading our show?” He was really annoyed. He said, “This isn’t cool. Can’t we have just ONE freaking night?” I don’t think he was being racist. I think it was more that country artists are always given the short shrift when it comes to other awards shows, and this is the one night of the year when it’s about the people whose livelihoods depend on country music. That does not include Beyonce.
