Beyonce Confirmed For Tonight’s CMA Awards

beyonce-2016The rumor that has been buzzing around the internet all day has been confirmed: Queen Bey will perform on tonight’s (Nov. 2) 50th annual CMA Awards. There is no official word on what Beyonce will sing, but there have been a number of speculations. Some news outlets suggest she will sing the Dolly Parton classic “I Will Always Love You,” which she has previously performed in concert. Other media honed in on the possibility of her singing her own song “Daddy Lessons” with the Dixie Chicks, because the trio has covered the song and it is rumored they will be in attendance.

Last year, A-list pop star Justin Timberlake took to the CMA Awards stage. He teamed with Chris Stapleton to perform “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Drink You Away,” which sent the then-rising star’s career into overdrive.

The 50th Annual CMA Awards will be hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood and broadcast live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Wednesday, Nov. 2 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Previously announced performers include Alabama, Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Clint Black, Garth Brooks with Trisha Yearwood, Brooks & Dunn, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Roy Clark, 2016 CMA Country Music Hall of Fame inductees Charlie Daniels and Randy Travis, Florida Georgia Line, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Elle King, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Tim McGraw, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Jennifer Nettles, Paisley, Pentatonix, Charley Pride, Thomas Rhett, Reba, Ricky Skaggs, George Strait, Chris Stapleton, Underwood, Keith Urban, and Dwight Yoakam.
