From the Banjo to Mickey Guyton and Beyonce, here's how black people in America have helped shape country music to what it is today.
This video states that the banjo was created in Africa and brought over to the Americas with enslaved Africans. The banjo is actually an instrument created by enslaved people in the Americas which has heavily influenced by West African lutes.

Here we go again haters stealing culture that’s not theirs. Please educate yourself before you sit there saying that country music came from white people & educate yourself on your own culture so you don’t feel the need to steal others. Every time I ask a person of European descendant they always say “I am white.” I had one person say “I am to lazy to look up my ancestry history.” So if you are a country singer please educate yourself about the history of country music & were it first started before you call anyone the N word.

What is also funny is that country singers emulate cowboys and cowboy culture but majority of cowboys during Wild Wild West were black and Mexican. This is why in many respects I never took country music seriously cause it never fully reflects real America.

Did they really not mention the probably the most popular black country artist Darius Rucker? He has won a Grammy before both before and after transitioning into country music, and a lot of his stuff is pretty critically acclaimed. It's a shame other artists don't get recognition though, especially when clearly non-country artists like Florida Georgia Line are thought of as country.

But also so-called "Scots-Irish". The fiddle and most of the lyrical structure was directly related to some specific songs which were from the Ulster Scots, who were in Ireland before coming to America. There were also Irish, indentured servants who had served their time but then married other ex-slaves. They were equal contributors, because they were not really equal to Whites, in some ways. That history is part of how this even happened. PEOPLE were more mixed back then, than most people seem to want to admit. But yes, Native Americans also need more recognition for their contributions, particularly in beat and rhythm. EDIT: I am only claiming Irish influence to COUNTRY, not Rock and Roll, which still seems to have been adopted by "country" Whites, much later.

Opera, orchestras, etc aren't even slightly. There wasn't one of 'the great composers' that was black. White Europeans were creating masterpieces in orchestral music and great halls while other countries were still banging sticks together, often in mud huts. An unfortunate truth. Just because black people stepped in right at the very end and plucked a guitar, etc doesn't make music black. It's everyone's.

interesting video. I found it a little insulting that Charley Pride was not mentioned at all. I don't really like where Country has gone since the 80s-90s. I much prefer the 50s and 60s Country Music. New-ish African American artist Tony Jackson is doing amazing traditional stuff. But no one talks about him outside of RFD-TV. Modern Country has gone so far away from it's roots that If you stick a little Rap or Pop sounds into it, it really isn't country music. Modern Country is barely country to begin with. But if an artist like Beyonce did a Patsy Cline or Loretta Lynn style song, It would indisputably be a country song. In my opinion Country music needs these things to be country.: Fiddle, Good Story telling, lap-Steal Guitar. The twang in a the voice is not necessary , its just a gimmick from the 90s. The accent that we hear in Loretta Lynn's or Merle Haggard's voice is natural. So if an Artist really sounds like that, GREAT! But no need to fake it. It is True African Americans Created the roots of Country Music, I would love for them to come back and fix it. :)

@Amb3rLuv no i didn't. But the video mentioned it as an example. I stand by my statement, "Country ain't Country no more" I like classic Country for the same reasons I like 80s and 90s Rap, the songs tell stories of a person's personal experience. When Country went fake, it went downhill fast. Country is the music of the working man (or woman). Gansta Rap was stories from the streets. Both are genuine American Art forms. It might be time for the modern artists to get back to their roots and tell stories that are true to their own experiences. 2020 has sure given us enough heartache to write some quality music.

Seeing that you could think that it's because this music is from a different time where the mind were different and racism was a "normal" thing, even approved by laws, but black music being seeing as a white thing is still here with newer sound. Like rock, or even techno and house, and at some point even jazz. Hip hop is kind of one of the last popular thing that still is considered as black music, but who know, it could change in few years, as there are more and more white artist charting in that genre. Music (and everything in general) shouldn't be about skin color, but as we living in a world where color can be a challenge for those who are born with a darker skin, then credits should be given correctly, and real music history should be teach instead of that euro-centric music theory that kids learn in school. But for that, lots of minds need to change, and that takes a long time over multiple generation.

@DeaconFlash I think you’re confused. Why would I listen to music I don’t like? All of the artists I mentioned make great music regardless of their skin color. They just happen to represent older eras of music in a contemporary fashion. I enjoy lots of different styles and genres and some of the artists just happen to be black. The Native Daughters project is made up of four younger women who are of color exploring their ancestorial roots through music.... and it’s great. It’s important to understand where you come from otherwise how are you going to know where you’re going? You’re the one that’s making this about race. Come back when you have something intelligent to bring to the conversation otherwise we are done here.

@Kareem Press Exactly. All the notes and all the music theory sorted out long before country music. Orchestral masterpieces being created in great halls long before people started strumming three basic chords on a banjo and claiming they invented something and in an era when Africans were still banging sticks together and singing in mud huts. That's why I say 'helped' shape everything - which they did, MASSIVELY. But let's get some perspective. All the hard work was done long before blues, jazz and country music. And as for the major inventions - that's not even debatable. Black people have next to no contributions to that. But, yeah. They shaped everything. As in 'use something well that someone else invented.'
