Beyoncé Discloses She Made Cowboy Carter After “Very Clear” Experience of Not Feeling Welcomed



Beyoncé detailed her motivation behind releasing her upcoming country album Cowboy Carter: "It was born out of an experience that I had years ago where I did not feel welcomed."



Beyoncé didn't let an experience break her soul.


In fact, less than two weeks before the release of her upcoming country album, Cowboy Carter, the 32-time Grammy winner detailed her gratitude for making history with her latest project.


"Today marks the 10-day countdown until the release of act ii," Beyoncé wrote in a March 19 Instagram post featuring what appears to be the album's cover art. "Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of the supporters of TEXAS HOLD ‘EM and 16 CARRIAGES. I feel honored to be the first Black woman with the number one single on the Hot Country Songs chart."


As she explained, "That would not have happened without the outpouring of support from each and every one of you. My hope is that years from now, the mention of an artist's race, as it relates to releasing genres of music, will be irrelevant."


The 42-year-old then went on to share the true motivation behind making the album featured in Act II, detailing an experience that stuck with her for years to come.






"This album has been over five years in the making," she shared. "It was born out of an experience that I had years ago where I did not feel welcomed…and it was very clear that I wasn't. But, because of that experience, I did a deeper dive into the history of Country music and studied our rich musical archive."


Nonetheless, "it feels good to see how music can unite so many people around the world," she noted, "while also amplifying the voices of some of the people who have dedicated so much of their lives educating on our musical history."
