Beyoncé racked up nine Grammy nominations across the awards’ rock, pop, rap, and urban-contemporary categories yesterday, but anyone familiar with her Country Music Awards performance with the Dixie Chicks was probably left wondering why Bey didn’t get her stab at Best Country Song or Country Solo Performance this year. According to the Associated Press, a source close to the Recording Academy’s nominating process reveals that the Grammys country committee rejected Beyoncé’s submission of the song “Daddy Lessons” from her most recent album, Lemonade. Of course, since Beyoncé and the Dixie Chicks’ released a version of the song after this year’s Grammy submission deadline, Bey could technically still lasso one next year, which is probably also a lesson she learned from her daddy.
