There were good ol' boys, a Taylor Swift appearance and a star-studded tribute to Dolly Parton — but who stole the night at the 50th annual Country Music Awards? Beyonce. Obviously.

Queen Bey performed her foray into country "Daddy Lessons" with the Dixie Chicks, who previously covered the "Lemonade" track during their spring tour. The big brass Louisiana-flavored country song was a standout from Beyonce's epic visual album, and had many wondering if she'd make a power play for country radio in the near future. While there were some haters, the native Texan brought down the house with a "yee-haw" and some veteran country sidekicks.

Oh, and a studio track of the duet is already recorded. It's available here.Get it Bey.
