country music awards


While Queen Bey has most of us eating out of the palm of her hand. the Drunk in Love singer has yet to win over a particular section of society if her recent performance at the Country Music Awards is anything to go by.

Having performed alongside the Dixie Chicks at the annual award ceremony this week, the Grammy Award winner was subject to criticism on social media from county fans who questioned the organisers' choice of performer.

With the Dixie Chicks having previously criticised former US President George Bush, the band's patriotism was the subject of much debate online while Beyoncé's stance on police brutality also came under fire.

"You're going to have Beyonce there!! Such a racist little witch, hates police, hates white people," wrote one CMA viewer. "Give me a break, this is absolutely the lowest of the low."

"Disgusting and very disappointing that country music would stoop so low and desperate," added another.

"All she's going to do is promote her devil worshipping rituals and summon demons and create more problems with the nonsense racial hate and division."

Following the fall-out from Beyoncé's appearance, fans of the star suggested organisers had removed all promotion relating to Bey's performance – an allegation the CMA's have strenuously denied.

"CMA has not erased any mentions of Beyonce’s performance on the CMA Awards, Beyonce’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 channel," a spokesperson confirmed.



Last last week they made their first red carpet appearance together in two years, and it seems like this pair are starting as they mean to go on.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel stepped out together once again last night, this time for the Country Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee.

No doubt excited to have a night off from parenting their seven-month-old son Silas, the couple could barely hide their giddiness.

"Date Night!" Jessica captioned a photo of the pair making silly faces from their seats in the Bridgestone Arena.

Jessica looked elegant in a white lace Marchesa number, wearing her hair in a chignon and accessorising with Tiffany diamonds.

Justin meanwhile, kept things casual – and very country – with a blazer, dress shirt, dark jeans and suede boots.

As well as getting to enjoy the awards with his wife, the singer performed on stage with CMA nominee Chris Stapleton, joining him for a rendition of Tennessee Whiskey and Drink Away.

"We had these nominations and thought we were gonna get, maybe, a slot to perform," Chris said, explaining how Justin ended up on stage with him.

"So I called him [Justin] up and, and asked him if he'd be interested in doing it and he was like, 'Yeah man, I'm in. Just tell me when to show up.' So here we are, we're gonna do it!"

Having not appeared together at an event since November 2013, Justin and Jessica gave fans a pleasant surprise last week when they both attended the Night Of Stars Gala in New York.

But even off the red carpet, the pair are clearly smitten. "Happy Bday to the sweetest, most GORGEOUS, goofiest, most BAD-ASS chick I know," Justin wrote on Instagram for Jessica's 33rd back in March, 

"You make me smile 'til it hurts. I love you like crazy! –Your Huz."
