Beyoncé left her fans astounded when she revealed her upcoming country-styled album at the Super Bowl in February. Following the announcement that instantly became a sensation, she released two tracks with a country flair, named “Texas Hold ‘Em” and “16 Carriages.” Once country radio stations began broadcasting “Texas Hold ‘Em,” it soared to the top of the Hot Country Songs chart, marking Beyoncé as the first black female artist to ever clinch the number one position on this chart.

The preview hinted that the forthcoming second part of Renaissance is scheduled for a March 29 release, sparking speculation among fans that she might be venturing into the country music arena. This assumption was fueled by what seemed to be a homage to the 1984 cherished western, Paris, Texas, through its visuals.

Due to the dedicated requests of the BeyHive for “Texas Hold ‘Em” to be played on country music stations, by mid-February, the track was officially added to the playlists of these channels. It eventually reached the pinnacle, claiming the No. 1 spot on the Hot Country Songs chart.

Following the revelation of Cowboy Carter, Tina Knowles, the mother of Beyoncé, has shared her thoughts on why her daughter’s venture into a country music album represents a seamless evolution.

Posting a collection of vintage magazine covers on Instagram that featured her daughter donning western-style clothing, Knowles, at the age of 70, captioned the post, “I stumbled upon this video in my IG feed! Growing up in Texas, the cowboy culture has always been a significant part of our lives.”

She went on to explain, “It was always clear to us that this wasn’t solely a part of white culture. In Texas, there’s a significant presence of a black cowboy community. Isn’t that the reason my children have been incorporating it into their wardrobe and artwork from the start?”

Limited information is available regarding the upcoming release of “Cowboy Carter,” set to debut on March 29 in just a handful of weeks. It is rumored that the album may feature a rendition of Dolly Parton’s iconic tune, “Jolene.” In an interaction with Knox News, the celebrated country musician, aged 78, mentioned she had heard word that the prominent artist might have covered her treasured track for this new album.
