While you were busy watching the Cubs win the World Series, Beyoncé was busy winning music.

Beyoncé appeared on the CMAs last night to perform her song “Daddy Lessons” with fellow Texans, the Dixie Chicks, and some people were really unhappy about it because they are racist asshats. Here’s the thing: the song is unapologetically country. The performance below is what it sounds like on the album, it has not been countrified for the CMAs. Because, never forget: Beyoncé is from Texas, y’all. And if you listen to it, you come to realize that Lemonade is not just a break-up-and make-up album, it’s actually about Beyoncé loving herself and fully embracing who she is: an African-American, a woman, a mother, a wife, a daughter, a Texan, a Southerner. So while Beyoncé is traditionally regarded as a “R&B” artist, y’all should know that Beyoncé does not have time for your limitations. She transcends your genres.

In keeping with the CMAs here’s a country music edition of “Mean Tweets” featuring both Dolly and Willie.
