    This was a very interesting segment, as always. I always learn something new and gain new interests after watching your segment. Now I’m going to explore country music. Keep up the good job, this was wonderful.

    I find it quite interesting to know that African American women have a distinct taste in music.

    This video is informational and it it showed how blacks can be who ever they want. I knew there were blacks that sang country music but most people never think that there would be.

    This is quite interesting. I don’t think that music should be limited to one race, so these women are doing their thing.

    It’s so interesting how the african american culture dosen’t hear that much about african american women country singers. I would have never thought that their would be african american country music.

    I really enjoyed the video especially the parts that emphasised on the black people who are excelleling in fields why people may not have expected to see them in .i love what greg and mildred are doing on this site.

    This is a wonderful video. I had no idea how many African American were country singers. Very enlightening!

    This is very important to me alot of people say that black people are just good for rapping and singing r and b. Using higher order thinking you can say that people who say are ignorant. Because if you relate this world history and geography you will know that black people are all over the world. We are all from Africa and we spreaded out to many parts of the world. and we picked up many things. Also there are alot of black who like country and can sing country. So like they always think before you talk. actually she is a good teacher.

  • Christine says:

    This was a very informative video. I would have never thought in a million years that so many black women that sing country, actually were successful in this industry and won awards. This is empowering women to never give up and no matter what nationality all things can be achieved.

  • Alexis Nixon says:
    March 26, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    This was a really good inspirational video i liked it a lot. I didn’t know many black women song country music and it actually sounds nice!

  • Tiffani Betts says:
    March 26, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    I find this video very interesting. Who would have known that black southern women can sing country. You don’t usually see black women singing country. It just goes to show you have African American people that can and will can cross boundaries and do the unexpected.

  • Outlaw says:

    Great video, probably opened people minds about African-Americans in the Music Industry

  • Essence Patterson says:
    March 27, 2012 at 1:51 am

    I learned a great deal from this video. The presensce of african americans in the country & rock genre of music is not widely spread in the media, so it was interesting to hear about these women.

    I truly loved this video, because of its wonderful contents. I don’t usually listen to western or country music, but listening and watching this video has opened my eyes to the beauty of southern music. It was amazing to see how much talent is contributed to society by African American women!

    They’ve done it again. What a great topic to discuss. I would have never known how many African Americans actually sing country music. I loved it. Great job!

  • Tiara Jones says:
    March 28, 2012 at 12:38 am

    I found it very interesting that a black woman sang country music. That is something that you rarely, almost never, hear about. The video itself was also very interesting and informative.

  • Zakir Hussain says:

    wow great video. who knew all those things about African American women. its very remarkable. i would really like to know what are your sources.

    The video was very interesting and different. I like the style of the music and never really heard a black person sing country, it is nice to see a change. I love this song.

  • Camren Watson says:

    GREAT video… really interesting how diverse the black culture is, compared to how un-diverse we are portrayed in the media!

  • Tyrone Simmons Jr says:

    Some people might be amazed to find out that they are African-American people singing country-style music, but others (myself included) know that black people have integrated into all aspects of art and society itself. I’m glad to hear that people like Dunmore and Gaddis are recognizing these people who really don’t get , much mainstream attention. The video does a good job at that.

  • Joe Journey says:

    Cool video. It was interesting and informative.

  • Francine Barksdale says:

    This was a very informative video. I didn’t think that people would be so surprised to hear black women singing country music. I just figured that since their are a lot of African Americans in the South that it was natural for black women to sing country music. Apparently it would seem that black women are not getting their credit for their contributions to Western music. This reminds me of when I saw an earlier video of a black teen who could rap fluently in Japanese and was extremely talented.

  • Nahida Legu says:
    March 28, 2012 at 2:58 am

    Great Video Mr. Dunmore! I enjoyed the segment and the introduction of the singer, and amazed at how many people did not know about her.

  • Annie Tran says:
    March 28, 2012 at 3:05 am

    This is amazing! No matter what ethnicity you are, you can sing whatever genre you like!

  • Donald Buckner says:

    It is incredible how some of the most influential, and might I say greatest people in many fields (whether it music, education, politics, sports, etc) are people who traditional don’t do it or are “incapable” of doing so. This is definitely a testament of “Neveer say never” and “Juts because it is traditional, doesn’t mean it can’t and will not be done.” In addition, to the people that are the “Nah sayers,” people who do not believe that others are incapable of achieveing certain heights, and greatness, “It may not be that they honestly believe someone is incapable of something, yet, they see so much potential in them that thye try to deter them from greatness,” as one of my friends often say.
    Betty Davis got with Jimmy Hendricks and created Jazz Fusion? That is veery informative and relevant to me. I am a Jazz fusion bass player (along with many other kinds of music) and I didin’t even know that. So, thanks for the knowledge and I look forward to more.

  • Ciara Page says:
    March 28, 2012 at 5:26 am

    The video was very interesting, and very informing. Not only is it amazing that so many ladies sing and perform country music and sound nice at doing it, but they comfortable with stepping out of their element and doing something they enjoy and staying confident in the process.

  • Noumi Chowdhury says:

    Interesting video! I have never heard of an African American person singing country music before. The songs presented in the video are really good!

  • Dominic Jackson says:
    March 28, 2012 at 9:56 am

    I want to start by saying i didn’t know it was women’s history month. I found it interesting that the girls even tho they were told that the really be good at the country music they said no I want to do it and then won Grammy’s on top of that great music. I’m not really for country music, but there is some country music is very enjoyable.

  • David Ayala says:
    March 28, 2012 at 10:45 am

    I hate country music in it’s entirety, but that’s just me. However, I do like the fact that African American women are doing something a little different in the music industry

  • Rhianna Chatfield says:
    March 28, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    Awesome video!! Rissi Palmer is a great country singer. I really enjoy when artists like her break the color barriers that are in the music industry.

  • Monique Presberry says:
    March 28, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    I love that you’re bringing notice to African American females singing country music. This type of music is not just for one type of person. My dad exposed me to many different kinds of music and i love it all. I honestly feel the older music is better than what’s out today.

  • Leslie Turner says:
    March 28, 2012 at 12:41 pm

    This video was very informative and really gave me some insight of the western and country music. I would have never thought of seeing a black woman singing country. When I heard the black women singing country I was astounded and it sounded really good.

  • Davontae Smith says:
    March 28, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    The video was very interesting and i received alot of new information that i never thought was going to happen. Thanks for another great video.

  • Christina Rutherford says:

    Great Video! Our society is so used to the mindset of African American females singing gospel or r&b. It’s not common to see black females singing country and western music. This definitely out shined any stereotype about African American singers! #Enlightenment 🙂

  • Sharmina Alam says:

    This video is very inspiring and makes me think that you can do anything, and that your color should not stop from doing whatever positive thing you want.

    This was a nice video. I didn’t think I would ever see an African American female sing country music. It was nice to see something different and out of the norm.

    Pulsebeat.tv is a fascinating website and with all the different topics and different point of views that are shared through the website help everybody understand different points being made by each individual. this video was a great one, just like the ones proceeding it. Stereotypes are definitely thrown out the window with African american singers like this in the world.

  • Reggie Ferrell says:

  • Ciara Gerald says:
    March 29, 2012 at 10:14 am

    If I was to turn off the video and only listen to the songs, i would not assume that these songs were sung by African American women. I’m too stuck to the stereotype that country is only sung by caucasian people. I guess i need to broaden my musical view because these songs are fantastic. People need to stop being so narrowsighted and need to listen to more things like this.

  • Diamond Carter says:
    March 29, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    Great Video! This shows how creative African American people can be. It is wonderful to see black females singing this type of music and being so good at it. It is a great motivation for young people to do anything they put their minds to.

  • Julian Rawls says:

  • Victoria Young says:
    March 29, 2012 at 3:37 pm

    I really enjoyed watching this video. I didnt even know that there were that many african american country singers that are women. Anyways the video was really interesting overall.

  • Raja-Nee Irvin says:
    March 29, 2012 at 4:02 pm

    It’s not a surprise that women of African American ethnicity is a country singer or enjoys that. I am glad that you took the time to express that and open the eyes to people who were ignorant to this criteria. Thankyou for the insight on the WOMEN ROCK movement. I’m looking forward to seeing Joi from Lucy Pearl.

  • Barbara Stewart says:

    March 30, 2012 at 2:35 am

    This was a very interesting video. I am very proud that there are African Americans who do stuff out how their comfort zone or different from what we are used to.

  • Sydney Bowden says:
    March 30, 2012 at 4:45 pm

    Women ROCK! I am very proud to see so many African- American women accomplishing so much in today’s society. It does not come as a surprise that there are African-American women singing country music. To be honest about it I am very proud of these women! This inspires me because it is encouraging me to follo my dreams regardless of my skin color.

    This is a wonderful videos! So much information about our african american women and them making history. You wouldnt even believe how many black women sings country/western music.

  • Mi'Isha Cunigan says:
    April 2, 2012 at 12:27 pm

    Great Video , I would have never thought that African American girls would sing other music besides R&B and gospel . This is a great diffusion of culture.

  • Mi'Isha Cunigan says:
    April 2, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    Great segment! I would have never thought that African American girls would cross over into country instead of the normal R&B or gospel. This actually removed all stereotypes that were posed against African American girls. This is a great diffusion of culture but instead of spreading African culture, country culture is being diffused into the African culture. I enjoyed this.

  • Justin Lee Wright says:
    April 3, 2012 at 11:18 am

    This is nice to see that African Amercians are so versitile in order to do country music as well. It’s mainly only those country guy and girl singer who are Caucasian. For them to be successful is even bigger some even had hits, but it’s always nice to see an African American succeed in an area that you would never expect.

  • Shanay Cuthrell says:

    This is very serious to me because black have many good qualities. People portray black people as one way but look at this.

    I really enjoyed this video. I really did not know anything about African American country western singers or that they were so popular. I appreciate all music but I may just have a reason to actually listen to it now.

  • Jasmine Giles says:
    April 19, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    I really liked this video, because it talks about how people never really notice the black female country singers, when they should be noticed to.

  • C'arra Miller says:
    April 20, 2012 at 9:54 am

    Great Video. I didnt know about African American western singers and their fame. Just by watching this video I might be interesting in listening to country music more often by these artist to show support.

  • Briana Taylor says:
    November 2, 2012 at 1:54 am

    I kind of figured some black women sang Country, but I never knew they sounded this good!!.. That song “Country Girl”, I love it!!.. Only because it sounds nice when the black woman sings it.. NO RACISM INTENDED. I can just relate to it more, and it sounds better to me.. (MY OPINION.. RESPECT IT.)

    thank you 🙂

    She’s a beautiful lady with a lot of talent. She’s a breath of fresh air for the African American community. She is not the typical R&B or hiphop artist.

  • Mushera Khandaker says:
    January 17, 2013 at 5:52 am

    It’s not very often an African American person sings country (no racism intended) I think it’s beautiful because it destroys various stereotypes.
