Beyoncé brings new audience to country music and highlights the genre’s Black roots

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.
