John Schneider slams Beyoncé’s new country song and compares her to ‘a urinating dog’

Beyonce’s move to country music doesn’t seem to be an act loved by everyone.

John Schneider, who plays in The Dukes of Hazzard, expressed strong feelings against the super star after she made a decision her song “Texas Hold ‘Em” to be played on a country music radio station in Oklahoma last week.

Appearing on One American News Network, Schneider spoke of how the country music has changed over the years.

“The lefties in the entertainment industry just won’t leave any area alone, right? They just have to seize control over every aspect, don’t they?” host Alison Steinberg said. Answering, Schneider compared Beyonce’s release of a country song to “a dog peeing on a tree.” He said, “They’ve got to make their mark, just like a dog in a dog walk park. You know, every dog has to mark every tree, right? So that’s what’s going on here.”

 

Further, Schneider, who’s also a country singer, said that singers like Beyonce should simply stay in their comfort zone.

Beyonce’s fans believe that her new album, which is to be released on March 29, 2024, titled Renaissance: Act II, could be a full-length country record.

Following the reports that stars such as Lana Del Rey and Post Malone would try themselves into the world of country music, Schneider said that plenty of country singers are worried about the influence these pop musicians could actually have on country music.

The truth is that this sort of music is extremely popular, with 76 million Americans listening to country music every week, so pop singers entering that sphere doesn’t come as a surprise.

Schneider has been part of the country music industry for many years. He has released nine solo albums, a collection of his best songs, and eighteen singles. Among the rest, he released I’ve Been Around Enough to Know, Country Girls, What’s a Memory Like You, and You’re the Last Thing I Needed Tonight, all big hits on the Billboard country singles lists.

However, although he felt entitles to share his opinion about Beyonce,her fans weren’t happy with what he had to say.

They came to her defense, dubbing him “racist and hateful.”

“Country music was created by black folks,” one fan wrote.

“Cross overs are not new. Paul McCartney released a country song 50 years ago (Country Dreamer and Sally G)…even the Stones had a huge country influence (Dead Flowers Far Away Eyes) so don’t understand this is about Beyonce unless it’s because she’s….,” someone else added.

“Imagine gatekeeping a genre of music that black people created, imagine getting mad that a southern artist from Texas decided to go back to her roots. BTW This is not her first country song!!,” a third fan pointed out.
