After the collaboration performance though, there was a bit of commotion online as the ladies’ performance was NOWHERE to be seen on the CMA Awards website!
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:
The girls also HIGHlariously retweeted the PERFECT GIF with a bit of a NSFW message that says:

Even though one of the women, Martie Maguire, stayed silent on her personal Twitter account, the two other songstresses, Natalie Maines and Emily Robison, both shared their thoughts about the Beyonc├â┬⌐ of it all! Emily kept things pretty calm and didn’t address the controversy as she tweeted:
Still in awe of “Bey”. Beautiful inside and out. True talent!! Honor to play along side her. #DixieChicks #Beyonce #CMAawards50 pic.twitter.com/d6gKZzrWOG

However, Natalie dove into the controversy head first as she wrote:
Hey everybody!The CMA’s just called and asked us to co-host next year’s show with Beyonc├â┬⌐.Unfortunately I’ve got a thing that night so, no.

What’s even better is the singer then used lyrics from Beyonc├â┬⌐’s Formation:
We still have yet to hear from the Queen, but we can’t WAIT to get her thoughts on the whole controversy!
What do you think about the way the CMA has handled the situation??
