Once again, it’s Beyoncé! With her recent album, "Cowboy Carter" enjoying a fantastic run on the Billboard 200, the world just can’t get enough. But let's add some more excitement to the mix. Your beloved Queen B has announced a new documentary named, "Call Me Country: Beyoncé & Nashville’s Renaissance." The streamer hits the screens on Friday, April 26. Get ready!

Beyoncé did what she does best: pump out hits. And this time she made history, with her lead single for "Cowboy Carter," titled “Texas Hold ‘Em.” The announcement and release during Super Bowl 2024 (Feb. 11) was as grand as the song itself. People, this was no ordinary success: “Texas Hold ‘Em” became the first country song by a Black woman to top both Hot Country Songs and the Billboard Hot 100. Trailblazing!

The release of “Texas Hold ‘Em” along with the B-side, “16 Carriages,” caused waves in music streaming, triggering an explosion of love for other Black women in country music. Trust me; it was a musical avalanche and one that was long overdue.

But wait, there's more!

"Call Me Country" will feature interviews! Grammy-winning country duo Brothers Osborne, Rhiannon Giddens who was on banjo for “Texas Hold ‘Em,” Rissi Palmer, Aaron Vance, Denitia, and oodles of cultural critics and country music pundits. Hold your hats for the co-directors of the Black Opry, Holly G., and Tanner D. as well!

Let's talk about the album that has been playing on repeat on your playlist. "Cowboy Carter," Queen B’s latest masterpiece, is not merely a collection of songs. It’s a powerful re-envisioning of the black roots of country music, with Beyoncé's signature all over it. It’s her eighth studio album and sits proudly with 27 anthems that will make you sit up, listen, and ponder.

The album includes collaborations with upcoming Black country stars like Tanner Adell, Brittney Spencer, Reyna Roberts, Tiera Kennedy, Shaboozey, and Willie Jones. The album also features interludes by country music legends, Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton. Beyoncé described Cowboy Carter as a continuum of her Grammy-winning Renaissance record.

From the release of Cowboy Carter to the making of “Texas Hold ‘Em,” to the announcement of her upcoming documentary, Beyoncé’s touch on country music is indeed transforming the landscape. The release of "Call Me Country: Beyoncé & Nashville’s Renaissance," is about the Queen's journey, her musical transformation, but also serves as a homage to the rich and vibrant black roots of country music.
