Beyonce-Dixie Chicks collab sparks a clash on social media

Celebrity Kids Celebrate Halloween 2016

The Texans were the surprisingly controversial highlight of the night, as hip-hop superstar Beyoncé performed her new country-leaning song "Daddy Lessons" alongside the Dixie Chicks, both clapping and chanting "Texas!" into the mic.

Additionally, Trahern explains, Beyonce provided her own photographer for the evening and only approved one official live video of the song, which is available on ABC.com and has been shared on the CMA's social media channels. "The promo was unapproved and CMA removed it prior to the broadcast", read Thursday's statement.

Another fan then got involved and accused the CMA of "using" the Dixie Chicks to garner attention through their performance with Beyonce, to which Natalie responded: "It's ok".

Beyonce's surprise performance at the 50th annual Country Music Awards was celebrated on Twitter among her Beyhive, but unfortunately it's been overshadowed by racist attacks from angry fans.

CMA has not erased any mentions of Beyonce's performance on the CMA Awards.

There were also complaints that Beyonce is not a country artist, although the CMAs routinely feature non-country artists in collaborations.

It is being reported that the CMA just wants the whole situation to "go away".

The Chicks helped Beyonce sing her song "Daddy Lessons" at the 2016 CMAs before playing a short clip of their hit song "Long Time Gone" - a fitting choice given their extended CMAs absence.

Dixie Chicks chimed in on the situation as well promoting fans to speak out.

But many others sounded thrilled, including country singers Brad Paisley (who tweeted "Welcome") and Cassadee Pope (who said, "I'm gunna explode.").

"Last year, I sat at a bar across the street and watched the show", she said, as she gazed out at the arena filled with her heroes.

Following the statement, the association started to include photos of Beyoncé and Dixie Chicks in new posts.
