rebaNov 11, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The CMA Awards 2010 held some big surprises for fans and added to the star power was the hilarious digs by the hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. Among some of the performances that stood out on the big night, there was the cover of the Beyonce Knowles hit ‘If I Were A Boy’ performed by country music icon Reba McEntire.

The song could have surprised several fans as the genre of the two artists are completely different, but the song is included in the new album by Reba McEntire called ‘All The Women I Am’. Reba McEntire said about her new album that it deals with all the experiences that she has been through as a woman. Though the Beyonce Knowles number ‘If I Were A Boy’ is a primarily R&B song, it manages to keep the cohesiveness of the album intact. Several bloggers, however, took to the web after the performance by Reba McEntire and said that she should have also performed one of her old hits on the special night.

Some reports suggest that Reba McEntire has also disapproved of the selection of nominees for the new categories like ‘Entertainer of the Year’. She felt that the CMA were breaking away from the traditions and the future, according to her, might not feel really as good. The new album, ‘All The Women I Am’, by Reba McEntire is a more personal one for the star. She revealed in a recent interview that the album showcases all the roles that she has played as a woman which includes that of a divorcee, a mother, a wife and a relationship counselor for friends.
