Six More Black Country Artists to Keep on Your Radar

In honor of Black History Month 2022, we’ve compiled a list of seven more Black country acts to keep on your radar as you discover and dive into new music and discographies.


1. Adia Victoria

Adia Victoria’s latest record A Southern Gothic was met with critical acclaim when she released it last year. Throughout last year, Victoria has been on tour with Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit and she recently just announced her own headlining tour titled ‘Ain’t Killed Me Yet Tour’ set to start in March and go across all over the United States.


2. Yola

With only two studio albums under her belt, English country singer Yola has received six Grammy nominations including Best Americana Album for this year’s ceremony. She’s performed on late-night television shows like The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live. She has also been featured as a Next Stage Artist at the Grand Ole Opry.


3. Madeline Edwards

Previously, in Madeline Edward’s career, she was mainly writing and performing soul and gospel music. She fully ventured into the country music scene with her 2021 release “Best Revenge.” She also performed alongside Mickey Guyton and Brittney Spencer for their performance of Guyton’s track, “Love My Hair.” She was also named as a part of Rissi Palmer’s “Color Me Country Class of 2022.”


4. BRELAND

After massive success with his track “My Truck” which went viral on the social media platform TikTok, rising country artist BRELAND has collaborated with artists like Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley, and HARDY. He’s also taken the stage at last year’s CMT Awards to perform with Mickey Guyton and Gladys Night and the 55th CMA Awards to perform “Beers On Me,” which is currently making waves on country radio.


5. Joy Clark

Joy Clark started off strong in 2022 like other artists featured on this list: being recognized by Rissi Palmer for her Color Me Country Class of 2022. Clark is known for her “honeyed vocals” and “melodious sound;” her songwriting is also worth noting as she pens a majority of her songs alone. Clark has also performed at Americana Fest with singer-songwriter Lilli Lewis.


6. Camille Parker

Although she only has one song out, Camille Parker’s “The Flame” is a great debut track leaving listeners wanting more as it showcases her vocal talent. She has also been featured as an artist named in Rissi Palmer’s Color Me Country Class of 2021.
