She said the idea for the album came after having an unpleasant experience a few years ago that left her feeling unwelcomed. Although she didn't specify which experience, many believed she was referring to the backlash she received for performing her song "Daddy Lessons" at the Country Music Association Awards in 2016 alongside the Dixie Chicks (now known as The Chicks).

Beyoncé also submitted "Daddy Lessons" in country music categories for Grammy consideration, but the Recording Academy's country music committee "rejected" it.

Before the album made its official debut today, Beyoncé released two lead singles — "16 Carriages" and "Texas Hold 'Em" — that became an instant hit on the radio and TikTok. "Texas Hold 'Em" reached No. 1 on the Hot 100 for two weeks, making Beyoncé the first Black woman to top the Hot Country Songs charts.
