Reception hall singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter thought she covered all her bases with her seminal visual album, Lemonade. The 39-year-old singer scored 9 Grammy nominations for Lemonade.
According to WENN.com, Beyonce was denied her 10th Grammy nom after the Recording Academy’s country music committee rejected her outright.
In her shameless effort to dominate the Grammys Beyonce collaborated with artists from multiple music genres to give herself an advantage over every other singer in every category.
Her strategy worked. She become the first artist to score mentions in pop, R&B, rock and rap categories in the same year.
The mother-of-1 would've grabbed a 10th nomination for country music -- but she was snubbed by the Academy.
WENN.com -- According to the Associated Press, an anonymous insider revealed judges of the country music categories were less receptive to her genre hopping as they refused to accept the album’s rustic number Daddy Lessons as a contender for the best country song and country solo performance prizes.
The alleged rejection comes despite Beyonce performing the track at last month’s Country Music Association Awards with the Dixie Chicks, who covered the song on their 2016 tour and collaborated with Beyonce on a new version of the track.
Despite the reported snub, the Halo singer is still the most nominated woman in the ceremony’s history and looks set to add to the 20 Grammy trophies she’s won throughout her career at the 59th annual ceremony in February.
