Beyoncé is celebrating the other women in country music who opened doors ahead of her “Cowboy Carter” album.

The decorated Grammy winner released her country debut on Friday, March 29, which featured 27 country-inspired songs on what’s become Beyoncé’s longest LP to date. Amid the release, the “Texas Hold ‘Em” singer took time to celebrate other Black women in country music by giving them flowers.

Singers K. Michelle and Mickey Guyton took to social media on the same day Beyoncé released “Cowboy Carter” to share the handwritten notes and flower bouquets they received from the singer.

“You’re killing it! I love what you’ve been doing and I know it’s not easy to enter a new space. Sending you positivity and respect. I hope to meet you one day. Love, Beyoncé,” the note to K. Michelle read.

“Thank you for opening doors for me, queen. Keep shining. Love and respect, Beyoncé,” Guyton’s note read.

These are the same sentiments Beyoncé revealed that inspired her to record her country album. In a lengthy Instagram statement, the mother of three shared how the album was spawned after she didn’t feel “welcomed” in the country music space when she initially tried to enter the genre.

“It was very clear that I wasn’t,” Beyoncé wrote. “But, because of that experience, I did a deeper dive into the history of Country music and studied our rich musical archive. It feels good to see how music can unite so many people around the world, while also amplifying the voices of some of the people who have dedicated so much of their lives educating on our musical history.”

Calling out the “criticism” she faced when she first tried to enter the country music genre, Beyoncé credited it with using the “limitations” to record Act II of her three-part musical “Renaissance.” Act I saw Queen Bey reclaim the house music genre, Act II is country, and Beyoncé fans are convinced that Act III will serve as a reminder of rock music’s Black origins.
