With the Dixie Chicks at her side, Beyoncé performed her hit “Daddy Lessons,” a song that has become one of her closest connections to country music and a song that the Chicks have been regularly covering during their Dixie Chicks 2016 World Tour.

Though the immensely popular singer isn’t known for her country music chops, it was not her first appearance at the awards show. In 2007, Beyoncé joined Sugarland at the American Music Awards to perform her hit “Irreplaceable.” According to the song’s writer, Ne-Yo, that song was initially written for a country music star like Shania Twain or Faith Hill.
