Alice Randall’s My Black Country was a lifetime in the making. The Nashville multihyphenate’s new memoir and accompanying collaborative album draw from Randall’s four-plus decades as a songwriter, professor, author and mother. Together they offer a glimpse at the life of a Black woman who deeply loves a genre that doesn’t typically love her back: country music.

Gay Ole Opry Playlist

Karen & the Sorrows have been building queer country community in Brooklyn by running the Queer Country Quarterly and the Gay Ole Opry (gayoleopry.com) since 2011. Most of these bands have come to play for us, but some we're still wishing on!

Gay Ole Opry

Why queer country music? Because sometimes you love a culture that doesn’t love you back. And when everyone came to the first Gay Ole Opry in April of 2011 in all their country finery, we knew we weren’t alone. We do it because we love the music and want to build a community to support queer country musicians.
