Carlene Carter, the daughter of late country icon June Carter Cash claims Beyonce is part of the Carter family’s legacy.

Following Bey’s new album Cowboy Carter stirring up some discourse over whether she should be considered “country,” Carlene says the superstar is in the same league as her mom. Beyonce’s full name is Beyonce Knowles-Carter.

Carlene condemned the “negativity” Bey has seen in the days since the release of the 27-track Cowboy Carter.

“As a Carter Girl myself and coming from a long line of Carter Girls, I’m moved to ask why anyone would treat a Carter this way?” she questioned.

“She is an incredibly talented and creative woman who obviously wanted to do this because she likes country music,” continued the 68-year-old singer-songwriter. “In my book, she’s one of us Carter women and we have always pushed the boundaries by trying whatever music we felt in our hearts and taking spirit-driven risks.”

“I am here to let Beyoncé and to all those naysayers know that I admire and love her and all she does,” Carter added. “I am delighted to know that Carter spunk is in her just like it’s been through nearly 100 years of us Carters choosing to follow ours hearts, hearts that are filled with love not just for country music but for all kinds of music. Here’s a warm welcome to the Carter Girl Club! It’s only a matter of time before those naysayers become Bey-sayers.”
