Beyoncé’s eighth album, “Cowboy Carter,” is a sprawling 27-track project that challenges the conventions of country music while infusing it with elements from other genres. The album, which Beyoncé began working on five years ago, serves as a rebuttal to those who doubted her place in the country music scene. She collaborates with a mix of established country artists and up-and-comers, as well as family members and newer Black country artists, to bring her vision to life.

The album features high-profile collaborations with artists like Post Malone and Miley Cyrus, as well as cameos from country legends like Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson. Beyoncé also integrates her own family into the album, with her daughter Rumi Carter making an appearance on the track “Protector.” Additionally, Beyoncé highlights newer Black country artists like Tanner Adell, who shares the spotlight with her on a cover of the Beatles’ “Blackbird.”

Alt-country artist Shaboozey and Willie Jones also make appearances on “Cowboy Carter,” adding their own unique sounds to the mix. The album features a variety of samples and interpolations from artists like Nancy Sinatra, Chuck Berry, the Beach Boys, and Fleetwood Mac, showcasing Beyoncé’s ability to blend different genres and eras of music seamlessly.

Through “Cowboy Carter,” Beyoncé successfully brings country music into her own world, reimagining the genre and pushing boundaries along the way. The album is a testament to her creativity and vision as an artist, as well as her ability to collaborate with a diverse array of musicians to create a cohesive and ambitious project. With its mix of influences, samples, and collaborations, “Cowboy Carter” showcases Beyoncé’s versatility and artistry in a new and exciting way.
