Black Opry: Elevating Country Music's Diverse Voices

The Black Opry is a platform for Black country music artists and fans.

It was founded by Holly G. after she felt excluded as a Black fan of the genre.

Country music's roots include Black artists, yet the industry has historically lacked diversity.

Black Opry connects artists like Aaron Vance with opportunities and a supportive network.

Beyoncé's recent country-inspired project has sparked debate and shone a light on the issue.

Vance believes the attention is positive, as it brings new listeners to the genre.

The Black Opry provides a space for celebration without the exclusionary aspects of country music culture.

Their work benefits fans and artists of all backgrounds, fostering a more inclusive future for the genre.
