Safe to say Bo Duke isn’t a Beyoncé fan.

The pop superstar set the music world on fire when she dropped two new songs during the Super Bowl, “Texas Hold ‘Em” and “16 Carriages,” as well as a Western-themed teaser video.

And while she didn’t officially announce that her upcoming album, Renaissance: Act II, would be a “country” album, the latest single has since been sent to country radio (after initially only being serviced to Pop, Adult Contemporary, Rhythmic, R&B, and Urban).

Of course there’s been a ton of reaction surrounding Beyoncé making an entry into country music, as well as plenty of discussion about the genre’s treatment of black female artists.

And when asked his thoughts, The Dukes of Hazzard actor (who’s also a country singer himself) John Schneider didn’t exactly mince words.

During an interview with One America News Network, the outspoken conservative was asked his thoughts on “the lefties in the entertainment industry” trying to “seize control of every aspect.”

“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, so that’s what’s going on here.”

He also differentiates between artists like Beyoncé coming into country music, versus country artists like Shania Twain who have ventured into pop music throughout their career:

“Shania and the other folks you talked about, what they did is they were in country music and they went out. That’s one thing…

Because I know a little something about country music.”

While Schneider may be best known for his 6-year run as one of “them Duke boys” on The Dukes of Hazzard, he’s also had success as a country singer with his nine studio albums, including four #1 singles with songs like “I’ve Been Around Enough to Know,” “Country Girls,” “What’s A Memory Like You (Doing In A Love Like This)” and “You’re The Last Thing I Needed Tonight.”
