Meet Nathan Ferraro, One of the Canadian Songwriters Credited on Beyoncé's "Texas Hold 'Em"

The Ontario-born musician and producer was once the frontman for the band The Midway State, but he's spent the last decade behind-the-scenes between Canada and Los Angeles. He talks about his writing team with fellow Canadians bülow and Lowell.

This week, Beyoncé became the first Black woman to top Billboard’s Country Songs chart with “Texas Hold ‘Em.” But many of the credited songwriters and promoters come from a surprising place – not Texas or Nashville, but Canada.

“Texas Hold ‘Em” is co-written by three Canadians: Nathan Ferraro (who also co-produced it), Elizabeth Boland (who has released music for the label Arts & Crafts as Lowell) and Megan Bülow (who makes music as bülow). The three of them are all credited on the song, with Ferraro also co-producing the song with Killah B and Beyoncé.
