( 4UMF NEWS ) Beyonce To Perform At CMA Awards:
Now Beyoncé is taking a swing at running the country music world, too.
The pop superstar is slated to perform at the 50th annual Country Music Association Awards on Monday night, Cody Alan of CMT Radio reports.
It’s unclear which songs the “Run the World” crooner will perform at the ceremony, but she certainly won’t be alone in taking the stage in Nashville.
Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw, George Strait, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban are among the other household names on the set list.
The CMA Awards serve as the latest in a long list of nationally televised performances for Beyoncé this year. She also sang her politically charged hit “Formation” during the Super Bowl halftime show in February before delivering a jaw-dropping medley of songs from her “Lemonade” album at August’s MTV Video Music Awards.
At Monday’s show, she’ll follow in the footsteps of Justin Timberlake, who took the stage with Chris Stapleton at last year’s CMA Awards for “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Drink You Away.”
Also set to perform at Monday night’s show is Little Big Town, which revealed its latest single, “Better Man,” was written by Taylor Swift.
It’s unknown if they’ll provide their first live rendering of the track at Monday’s ceremony.
The award show — which will be hosted by Underwood and Brad Paisley — airs live on ABC at 8 p.m.
