Beyoncé is the first Black woman to have a number one country album with 'Cowboy Carter'.  

Beyoncé became the first Black woman with a Number One country single with "Texas Hold 'Em" more than a month earlier.  

Beyoncé became the first Black woman to top Billboard's Top Country Albums chart with Cowboy Carter.   

On Sunday, Billboard reported that Cowboy Carter was her eighth number-one album in the country.  

Beyoncé defeated Morgan Wallen's One Thing At a Time for Country and Future and Metro Boomin's We Don't Trust You for Top Album.  

Cowboy Carter is 2024's biggest album launch, surpassing We Don't Trust You's 131,000 in its second week with almost 407,000 U.S. sales.   

More than 300 million on-demand streaming and 168,000 traditional record sales supported the album.  

Cowboy Carter is Beyoncé's biggest opening debut since 2016's Lemonade, which sold over 650,000 units when streaming was just taking off.  

While Charlie Pride, Darius Rucker, and Kane Brown have topped the Country Albums chart over the decades, no Black woman had until now, highlighting Beyoncé's range as a superstar and the genre's diversity issues.
