— -- Tonight's Country Music Association Awards will pay tribute to 50 years of country music history -- with some help from a global pop star.

People magazine reports that Beyonce is currently in Nashville, and plans to appear on tonight's 50th Annual CMA Awards, which air on ABC beginning at 8 p.m. EST.

Having superstar pop artists sing on the CMAs isn't unusual. Last year, Justin Timberlake stopped the show by duetting with the night's big winner, Chris Stapleton.

Growing up in Texas, Beyonce no doubt was exposed to country music, and may even be a big fan.

As for what the Grammy-winning star would perform, she could duet with a country star on or do a solo performance of a country classic, since tonight's entire show is dedicated to great country artists and songs of the past. Or perhaps she'll perform "Daddy Lessons," a country-flavored song from her critically acclaimed album "Lemonade."

You'll have to tune in tonight to find out. Reps for the show could not be reached for comment.
