Grammys: Country committee rejected Beyoncé's "Daddy Lessons"Acceptance could have made her eligible for Best Country Song and Solo Performance.
Dec 8, 2016

It's already been revealed that Beyoncé made history as the first artist to ever be nominated in four different musical genres (in the same year) at the Grammys.

But she could have gone for five, had the Recording Academy's country music committee not rejected her submission of Lemonade cut "Daddy's Lessons."

According to the Associated Press, Bey sent the track, which she performed alongside the Dixie Chicks at the CMAs earlier this year, to be recognized by the country category, but a source says they dismissed it. Had it been accepted, Bey could have been up for honors such as Best Country Song (which awards the writer) and Country Solo Performance (which awards the artist).

Representatives for Beyoncé and the Grammys didn't immediately reply to emails seeking comment.
