Unapologetically Black Country


Black Americans have long influenced, inspired and improved country music in the United States. But despite Black people’s historical contribution to its very fiber, country music still presents as a genre largely performed by white singers for a white audience base. The Black Opry seeks to bring racial equity to country music and help expand representation and perspectives within the industry.
