Beyoncé performed 'Daddy Lessons' at the CMA Awards as we pulled out our cowboy hats & boots

Earlier Wednesday afternoon, a rumor spread like rapid wildfire on social media that Beyoncé would be performing the country-tinged "Daddy Rumors," accompanied by the Dixie Chicks, whose cover of the song went viral.
Live footage of us getting ready to go home to see the performance.
Everyone started to get in formation.

The exact rumor was that Bey would be opening up. But when 8:00 came and Mrs. Carter wasn't on stage, we were miffed!

It was seeming like the CMAs scammed us and we just needed answers.
