AP Wonders If Country Music Will Welcome Beyoncé 'Fans of Color'

meme

A couple of weeks ago, we told you how the media credited Beyoncé with 'saving' country music with her album 'Cowboy Carter', even though country music -- as a genre -- had seen good growth in 2023.

They want Beyoncé to be two things simultaneously: savior of country music, and this brave pioneer, going where no other artist has gone before, despite racism (they apparently forgot about Darius Rucker, it seems).

Now AP -- ever looking for the racial angle -- is asking the important questions here:

Really?

More from the AP:

Tanner Davenport, co-director of Black Opry — and proud BeyHive member — worries the massive achievements of “Cowboy Carter” could have unintended consequences, such as country music executives not feeling an urgency to platform existing and future Black artists. Black Opry was founded by Holly G in April 2021, as she examined her relationship with the genre during the social justice movement sparked by the murder of George Floyd. The organization aims to amplify Black voices in country, Americana, blues and folk music.

“Once ‘Act II’ has ran its course and gone away, there are going to be programmers... looking back at this moment and saying, ’We’ve already done this. We’ve given a Black woman a No. 1,” said Davenport. “If they can really start to dial into the audience a bit more, I think they can start to see progress within this and capitalize on this moment because I think there’s a huge undermining of the Black dollar and how far it can go.”

Geez.

They forgot about the late, great Charlie Pride, too.

Excellent question.

Not a chance.

No black artist was in the country music genre until Beyoncé, according to them.

We don't have the time to answer this question.

Oh, look.

We all saw it.

Thankfully, the haters in the media didn't win and we got this awesome moment in music history.

So pathetic.

Exactly.

They literally cannot imagine a community like this exists.

The media doesn't, though.
