Why did Alan Jackson walk out of the 2016 CMA Awards?

The 2022 CMA Awards are fast-approaching and many of country music’s biggest stars will be heading to Nashville’s Bridgestone’s Arena on November 9.

One man who will be making a return to the ceremony is Alan Jackson, who will be honored with the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award. However, organizers will no doubt be keeping their fingers crossed that his appearance goes off without a hitch.

Back in 2016, Alan reportedly walked out of the ceremony when Beyonce joined the Dixie Chicks for a performance to celebrate 50 years of the CMAs.
