Oh, how we love a good rumor.

Especially when that good rumor is about none other than pop queen Beyoncé.

Speculation began on Nov. 2, just hours before the beginning of The 50th Annual CMA Awards, that Beyoncé had been seen in Nashville. According to People Magazine, it was quickly confirmed that Beyoncé had indeed arrived in Nashville, coincidentally on the same night of the awards show.

As country fans started talking about that coincidence, more speculation began to stir that not only was she in Nashville, but she also was there to perform at the CMA Awards.

We will let that sit awhile while we pick up our hearts off the floor.

If true, this performance could possibly top last year’s collaboration between Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake, who performed crazy cool versions of “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Drink You Away.”

And while the connections between country music and Beyoncé might be hard to see on the surface, the chart-topper has dipped her feet into the country pool, specifically her song “Daddy Lessons.” And who could forget when Beyoncé collaborated with Sugarland during the 2007 American Music Awards?

So join us as we wait and see if the rumors are true! Whatever happens, it’s setting up to be an unforgettable night.
