Beyoncé Drops ‘Cowboy Carter’ Album

As part of her just released new album ‘Cowboy Carter,’ Beyoncé recruited an all star musician line-up for cameo appearances.

Her first full length foray into the country music space, the superstar singer aligned forces the iconic Dolly Parton for her rendition of ‘Jolene’ complete with rewritten lyrics, featuring an interlude by the country legend herself.

For her part in the recording, Parton says “Hey, Miss Honey B, it’s Dolly P. You know, that hussy with the good hair you sang about reminded me of someone I knew back when. Except she has flaming locks of auburn hair. Bless her heart. Just a hair of a different colour, but it hurts just the same.”

Along with Willie Nelson who’s featured on ‘Smoke Hour Willie Nelson’ and ‘Smoke Hour II,’ the LP also included from Miley Cyrus on ‘II Most Wanted’, and Post Malone on ‘Levii’s Jeans’.

Beyoncé also features Linda Martell, the first Black woman to sing at the Grand Ole Opry (in 1969) as well as Black country artists including Rhiannon Giddens, Tanner Adell, and Willie Jones.

Married to Jay-Z, Mrs Carter became the first Black woman to top Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with ‘Texas Hold ‘Em’ after it debuted at #1.

The ‘Cowboy Carter’ album is the second part of Beyoncé’s planned ‘Renaissance’ trilogy – following the 2022 dance record ‘Renaissance’.
