Beyonce’s Act II Serves as a History Lesson in Black Country Music

Written by on March 15, 2024

Beyonce has revealed the title and release date of her upcoming album that has everyone talking! Get the deets inside.

“Act II:Cowboy Carter” is set to arrive on March 29th 2024. At first glance, you’d think it’s a simple play on her married name, but TikToker @Beysus.Christ has a theory that seems to expose the so-called First Family of Country Music, The Carters.

The group, formed in 1927 was led by Maybelle Carter who is credited for creating a guitar picking style called “the Carter scratch” that revolutionized country music. The problem is Maybelle took the style from a Black man in North Carolina named Leslie Riddle. Watch this

As for clues as to what else Cowboy Carter has to offer in addition to singles “16 carriages” and the Billboard hit “Texas Hold Em'”, Country icon Dollywood Parton may have spilled the beans on Beyonce doing a cover of ‘ Jolene’! On March 8, 2024, in an interview for the 2024 season opening of Dollywood, Parton said of Beyonce “I think she’s recorded ‘Jolene’ and I think it’s probably gonna be on her country album, which I’m very excited about that”.
