Beyoncé tried to get a Grammy country nomination for her Lemonade track, "Daddy Lessons," according to The Guardian.

"Daddy Lessons" was reportedly rejected by the country music committee, according to The Guardian's source who spoke anonymously on the topic. If the song has been accepted, it could have been up for categories including Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance.

"Daddy Lessons" has a decidedly more country feel, but it seemingly wasn't enough to be accepted for the honor in the genre. We can't blame Beyoncé's team for trying though considering the feel of the song. She even performed the song with the Dixie Chicks at this year's CMA Awards and later released a version of the song featuring the country trio.

Queen Bey did more than fine when it came to this year's nominations, leading the pack with a total of nine nominations in the rock, pop, R&B, and rap award categories. Her songs were nominated for some of the biggest honors including Album of the year, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year. The additional nine awards officially earned Bey the honor of being the most nominated female artist in Grammy history. The singer has now been nominated for 62 awards total with 20 Grammy Awards currently to her name.
