Beyoncé Takes Over Country Charts With ‘Texas Hold ‘Em’

It seems like there’s nothing that Beyoncé can’t do. The singer’s latest track, “Texas Hold ‘Em,” has officially hit Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart — a career first for the mother of three. Last Sunday, Queen Bey kicked off yee-haw season into full gear with the release of two new country-inspired songs, “16 Carriages,” and the aforementioned track, which is a tribute to her home state. The new tracks will appear on the second installment in her Renaissance series, Act II. 

On the other hand, while many folks are excited about Beyoncé’s venture into country music, it’s unclear how the old guard of country will respond.
