The Dixie Chicks are touring the world, and, as most artists do, they have added some covers to their set. We have to bow down for how quickly they got this cover together because they added one of Beyonce's new songs which just premiered last Saturday on HBO and Tidal. The Dixie Chicks covered "Daddy Lessons" on their stop in Manchester, England, and they did a fine job. "Daddy Lessons" comes from Beyonce's new visual album Lemonade, which is her 6th album to debut at number 1, no big deal.
We have a few things to talk about with this cover. First off, it is amazing that they were able to get this together so fast when Beyonce just released Lemonade last week -- though we get a cute little mess up right in the beginning, probably because it is so new. Secondly, the world may have thought, 'why are the Dixie Chicks covering Beyonce?' Normally, we'd be asking the same question, but "Daddy Lessons" actually has two very distinct feels: one of them is a New Orleans jazz vibe while the other is a country feel. So the Dixie Chicks were absolutely perfect to grab this song as a cover. Lastly, this is one of our favorite songs off Beyonce's latest work, and we are so happy it's already being covered -- and covered well at that. The Dixie Chicks' harmonies on the chorus are really good.
What did y'all think of the Dixie Chicks take on Beyonce's "Daddy Lessons"? Did you love it, or could you have lived without it? Take a listen above, and sound off in the comments with your thoughts. And, if you haven't heard the original by Beyonce, then you are very much missing out. Check it out on Tidal or purchase it on Amazon or iTunes. This song is outstanding, and the Dixie Chicks did a great job with it.
