"I can't express enough how big what she did was because she brought so many eyes to the genre," he continued.

"You know, one of the things I love about what Beyoncé did is when I started making country music and having hits, I'd have African American women and men come up to me and go ', I love country music, it's just I could never say it.'"

Tipping his hat to Beyoncé's crowd-pulling power, Darius said, "And she brought, I think, even more eyes to the genre and more people looking at it and more Black people going 'Alright man, I like country music.'"

He noted, "I always say I want country music to look more like America, and I think she did a lot to make itgothatway."
