ABOUT BLACK OPRY

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 it’s conception. For just as long,we have been overlooked and disregarded in the genre by fans and executives. Black Opry wants to change that.  We invite you to discover, support and enjoy Black artists here.  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- we plan on exploring all of it.    

 

We plan to continue the conversation about how to evolve the country music industry and create a space that is both safe for and helpful to Black fans and Black artists. We invite you to join us as we learn the ins and outs of the country music industry and figure out how we can make each space safer and more inclusive. We are aiming to identify problems and seek solutions.

 

As we learn and grow, we hope to provide resources and tips for being successful as an independent artist and within the industry. Our goal is to support Black artists in country music and adjacent genres as best we can.
