Black Opry creates a safe space for Black country music fans

Years before Beyoncé dropped Act II: Cowboy Carter, country music enthusiast Holly G couldn’t get any of her friends to attend a concert. Holly channeled her frustration into the blog Black Opry, a play on the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, dubbed country music’s biggest stage. Three years later, the website has grown into a collective of people who are working to create a safe place for Black people to enjoy the genre and freely create country, blues, folk and Americana music.
