Country Carter Hitting MLK Blvd

Since Beyonce appeared in a Verizon ad during Super Bowl LVIII to plug her upcoming album, haters, the BeyHive, and fans have created some serious buzz about “Cowboy Carter.” This album (or the songs released to date) is her latest venture into country music. 

Renaissance: Act 2: Cowboy Carter is Beyoncé’s eighth studio album. One of the songs, “Texas Hold ‘Em” is already setting social media on fire with line dances. 

On her Instagram channel, Beyoncé wrote, “It (the album) was born out of an experience that I had years ago where I did not feel welcomed…and it was very clear that I wasn’t. But, because of that experience, I did a deeper dive into the history of Country music and studied our rich musical archive.” 

The experience she was referring to might have been when she performed with The Chicks (former Dixie Chicks) at the Country Music Awards or CMA, one of their highest-rated segments, said writer Dustin J. Seibert in an article for The Root. 

“The CMAs apparently got so much negative flak from the performance of Bey and The Chicks (who infamously endured their own battle with Country’s rootin’ tootin’ powers that be) that it folded like gym towels and took the performance off its platforms — only to buckle to even greater outrage a day later and put it back up…proving that the CMAs mama still apparently tells it what to do.”
