Hats off to country music legend Alan Jackson for taking a stand when Beyonce took the stage at the 50th anniversary of the Country Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee.
Beyonce joined the Dixie Chicks on stage, but a Nashville Manager, who was there at the show, told Bilboard that the performance fell flat.
He claimed it seemed out of place and forced.
“IT JUST DIDN’T FIT THE NIGHT TO ME, CELEBRATING THE 50 YEARS, AND THE DIXIE CHICKS SEEMED LIKE HER BACKUP BAND ON IT, WITHOUT ENOUGH OF A REAL SHOUT-OUT TO THEM.”
Beyonce’s recent music videos and performances have been highly criticized for promoting the anti-police agenda, and at one point, the disdain for her grew to such a degree that off-duty officers were refusing to pick up the extra work, and provide extra security for her concerts.
Beyonce also provided a pro-Black Panther Party show during last year’s Superbowl, which left many fans outraged.
The Nashville Manager went on to say that the Beyonce- Dixie Chicks combination was so bad that country music legend Alan Jackson walked out.
“I WAS SITTING BEHIND ALAN JACKSON, AND HE ACTUALLY STOOD UP FROM THE FRONT ROW AND WALKED OUT IN MIDDLE OF THE PERFORMANCE, SO I THINK THAT SPOKE VOLUMES FOR THE TRADITIONAL, REAL COUNTRY ACTS.”
Even the outfit that Beyonce chose to wear for the country music venue had nothing to do with the theme of country.
Many viewers seemed to agree with the Nashville manager’s opinion, that Beyonce’s suggestively gyrating hips and almost transparent outfit did not belong at the 50th anniversary of the CMA’s.
What do you think? Should Beyonce stick to her divisive, anti-cop R and B, and leave the country music to those who love their country, and who are proud of the men and women serving in uniform? Watch the performance below:
