BLACK OPRY is a home for Black artists and Black fans of country, blues, folk, and Americana music. Country music has been made by and loved by Black people since its conception. For just as long, they have been overlooked and disregarded in the genre by fans and executives. Black Opry wants to change that! They invite you to discover, support and enjoy the Black artists that make magic in that space. One of the most valuable aspects of country music is its versatility and diversity in sound. Country, blues, folk, and Americana music often overlap or weave together — these artists explore all of those sounds and intersections. The Black Opry Revue showcases the diversity in sound and stories that Black artists offer to these genres.
