It’s official: Queen Bey will be performing at the 2016 CMA Awards.

Good Morning America confirmed Beyonce‘s last-minute addition to the awards show’s performance lineup on Wednesday afternoon (Nov. 2), after a number of sources reported that the pop superstar was in Nashville. No further details of Beyonce’s performance have been revealed, though a source tells Us Weekly, “It’s going to be a huge performance. Epic!”

Beyonce’s newest album, April’s Lemonade, contains a country-tinged song called “Daddy Lessons;” some are speculating that she will perform that song with the Dixie Chicks, a la Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton performing Timberlake’s country-esque song “Drink You Away” at the 2015 CMAs. The Chicks performed a cover of “Daddy Lessons” throughout their 2016 DCX MMXVI World Tour.

In addition to Beyonce, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, Alabama, George StraitRandy TravisCharlie Daniels, Chris Stapleton and many, many more will be taking the stage during the 2016 CMA Awards. The 50th anniversary awards ceremony will air live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on; the broadcast begins at 8PM ET on ABC.
