Music City was LIT on Wednesday night for the CMA Awards — and we've rounded up all the highlights from country music's biggest night (annnnd all the drama that happened after) just in case you've been too busy to catch up! You're welcome!
Clearly feeling on cloud nine, the Vice singer captioned the red carpet photo:
"I had a great time last night celebrating country music at the CMA awards with my sweet ❤️ by my side! @andersoneast I'm a lucky girl!#cma50thanniversary #countrymusic #nashville #myBAMAboy#anothervice"
Unfortunately, it didn't take long before the 32-year-old started seeing "judgmental and negative" comments criticizing the duo's relationship and appearance. Seriously, y'all??
Allegedly, the awards show posted something about Bey and the Chicks on their site and it immediately received a TON of racist comments, so they took it down. Yeah, cause that's the way you get rid of racism, just sweep it under the rug. UGH!
We're sure you can imagine there was a lot of uproar from the BeyHive, but the country singing ladies had a bit to say about the whole issue to as they took to Twitter to share:
UPDATE! 8:41 P.M. EST: CMA denies removing Beyoncé and The Dixie Chicks from their website. According to a spokesperson:
"CMA has not erased any mentions of Beyoncé's performance on the CMA Awards. In advance of the broadcast, CMA removed a five-second promotional clip from ABC.com and CMA's Facebook page. The promo was unapproved and CMA removed it prior to the broadcast. Beyoncé's performance with Dixie Chicks was a highlight of the evening and we are continuing to share the amazing full-length performance clip via our official social channels."
