(CNN)The 50th Annual Country Music Association Awards aired Wednesday night live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, and it was full of showstopping moments.
In case you missed the show, here are the top five moments.
Beyonce brought down the house at the CMA Awards. The Texas native performed "Daddy Lessons" off her album "Lemonade" and was joined on stage by the Dixie Chicks. The country trio covered the song while on tour -- and like Beyoncé -- they've been the target of conservative critics for infusing politics into performances on occasion. Rumblings of a possible Beyoncé appearance at the show began early Wednesday after she was spotted around Nashville.
