Beyoncé’s ‘Daddy Lessons’ Rejected for Country GRAMMY: Report

By Amanda Wicks

Beyoncé’s Lemonade may have continued her move beyond the pop/R&B hybrid she’s known for; as she did on 2013’s Beyonce, she blurs genre boundaries. That doesn’t mean that those other genres necessarily accept her.

Apparently, Bey submitted the country-infused song “Daddy Lessons” to the Recording Academy’s country music committee for consideration, but a source close to that committee said it was rejected (via Billboard). Should “Daddy Lessons” have been considered for a country GRAMMY, it would have been eligible for categories like Best Country Song and even Best Country Solo Performance.

But Beyoncé has found supporters in Blake Shelton when the song first appeared, and more recently in The Dixie Chicks. The four women delivered a stunning performance together in November.

Even while Beyoncé may have been snubbed for a country GRAMMY, she’s still nominated in nine other categories, including Best Rock Performance. For that award, she’ll be going up against David Bowie’s posthumous “Blackstar.”
