Call Me Country: Beyoncé and Nashville’s Renaissance explores the evolving definition of country music, highlighting Beyoncé’s impact on the industry, as Black artists in Nashville continue to fight for visibility.

Beyoncé’s highly anticipated album COWBOY CARTER, released March 29, arrived during a revolution within country music as the latest arena of the culture wars in America. Some in the industry are welcoming more diverse artists, while others stick to a much narrower view of a genre that predominately centers around straight, white men.

Call Me Country examines the impact of how high-profile artists like Lil Nas X and Beyoncé are challenging the country music status quo, and how Black artists in Nashville have been laying the foundation for this transformation for some time.

Call Me Country features interviews with country musicians including Rhiannon Giddens, banjo player on Beyoncé’s “Texas Hold ‘Em,” John and T.J. Osborne of Brothers Osborne, Rissi Palmer, Aaron Vance and Denitia. It also includes analysis from culture and country music experts including Touré, Larisha Paul, Chris Molanphy, Kyle Coroneos, Keith Hill, and Co-Directors of the Black Opry Holly G. and Tanner D.
