‘Call Me Country: Beyonce & Nashville’s Renaissance’ Documentary To Stream On Max

A new documentary, Call Me Country: Beyonce & Nashville’s Renaissance will stream on Max in the U.S beginning on April 26.

As Beyonce recently became the first Black woman to ever top Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart, a larger conversation about what defines country music has exploded into the zeitgeist.

Produced by the CNN FlashDocs unit, Call Me Country: Beyonce & Nashville’s Renaissance examines the impact of how high-profile artists like Lil Nas X and Beyonce are challenging the country music status quo and how Black artists in Nashville have been laying the foundation for this transformation for some time.

The documentary features interviews with banjo player Rhiannon Giddens, John and T.J. Osborne of Brothers Osborne, Rissi Palmer, Aaron Vance, and Denitia.

It also includes analysis from culture and country music experts including Toure, Larisha Paul, Chris Molanphy, Kyle Coroneos, Keith Hill, and Co-Directors of the Black Opry Holly G. and Tanner D.
