The Country Music Association approved of Beyoncé’s song “Daddy Lessons” with the Dixie Chicks at November’s 50th CMA Awards, but as for the Grammys, they didn’t quite approve of the song. The track, off Beyoncé’s Lemonade, was reportedly rejected by the Recording Academy for consideration in the country field.
According to a story by the AP, Beyoncé submitted “Daddy Lessons” for nomination in the country category, but the Academy’s country-music committee shunned the song.
Beyoncé earned nine Grammy nominations when the categories were revealed on December 6th. Most of the singer’s nominations were in all-genre, pop and rap categories, and surprised everyone when she was nominated in the Best Rock Performance area for “Don’t Hurt Yourself,” featuring Jack White.
Following November’s performance at the CMAs, Beyoncé released a new version of “Daddy Lessons” featuring the Dixie Chicks.
The 59th Grammy Awards will be held February 12th in Los Angeles.
