You’re Welcome, America: Beyoncé and The Dixie Chicks Made a New Version of "Daddy Lessons"
Queen Bey performed at last night's Country Music Awards with The Dixie Chicks, and you can download a studio version of the collaboration for free.
When Beyoncé released Lemonade back in April, the song "Daddy Lessons" stood out to many as a foray into a form that she hadn't approached before, country. And obviously because this is Beyoncé, and Beyoncé is the best at everything she tries her hand at, the song ended up being one of the standout tracks on the record.
Not content with dipping her perfect toes gently into country's waters, however, Bey staged a takeover of last night's Country Music Awards with a showstopping rendition of her one country song, in order to show a room full of people who have dedicated their lives to the genre how it's really done. Can you say "icon"?
She was joined by fellow Texans The Dixie Chicks, and it was a revelation. Better yet, there's an isolated audio version of the collaboration, which features a breakdown where they go into a bit of Dixie Chicks' "Long Time Gone" and that you can download here—for free!
So pull on your best Stetson and get yourself to your nearest line dance, because Beyoncé has willed it and it must be so. Siri, where can I find cowboy boots, ASAP?
