Beyoncé brings new audience to country music

Season 2024 Episode 62 | 6m 00s

This week, Beyoncé continued her reign at the top of the country charts. Last week she became the first Black woman to hit number one with her banjo-infused bop “Texas Hold ’Em.” The song has brought a new audience to the genre and reminded music fans of country music's deep African and African American roots. Amna Nawaz has a closer look for our arts and culture series, CANVAS.
