Beyoncé put on her sparkly Texas best to rock out with the Dixie Chicks at tonight's CMAs.  And it was everything.  Get it all inside, plus the studio version of the ladies' "Daddy Lessons" remix...

Hours before tonight's CMAs, the Country Music Association put out word that Beyoncé would be a surprise guest.  The memes and hysteria hit fevor pitch immediately with folks guessing what (and with who) she would perform.

It was a night of mash ups of new and old as the CMAs were celebrating their 50th anniversary.  So it's only right Bey and the legendary Dixie Chicks slay the stage together.

They've got a lot in common.  They're both from Texas.  And both Beyoncé and The Dixie Chicks have caught some shade from the country community over the years.  Back in 2003, when the "Wide Open Spaces" singers went against the grain and vocally expressed their disgust with then-President George W. Bush, the Dixie Chicks were blackballed by country radio and the country music community.  It even caused them to go on a hiatus from '08 to -13. 

Beyoncé also received her share of hateration from the country/conservative community after her Formation performance at the Super Bowl.  She was blasted by a good number of folks for what they called "anti-police" and "divisive: rhetoric.  Not to mention all the folks calling for a "boycott" if CMAs actually  allowed Beyoncé to perform tonight. Hmph.

So, the Texas queens linked up to slay folks' existence.

Like many predicted, they sang Beyoncé's "Daddy Lessons" off the Lemonade album as the Dixie Chicks covered the song on their recent world tour.  They mashed up the track with Dixie Chicks' 2002 hit "Long Time Gone."  The ladies were backed by a full brass band, banjos, fiddles, and horns.  Who said Bey's not country?

Get the full performance below:
