Beyoncé released two country songs earlier this month.

"The lefties in the entertainment industry just won't leave any area alone, right?" questioned the OAN host. "They just have to seize control over every aspect, don't they?"

"They've got to make their mark, just like a dog in a dog walk park," said Schneider, 63. "You know, every dog has to mark every tree, right? So that's what's going on here."

"Shania [Twain] and the other folks you talked about, what they did, they were in country music and they went out," he added. "That's one thing, but people coming into country music... I know a little something about country music."

"I want people to hear it. One of the biggest artists in the world delivered a great country record for us to have fun with, and the song is really good," he explained. "We are in the business of creating excitement for our listeners and I’m embracing the moment. Plus, there is plenty of room for great artists, even from other genres. It’s a big country tent."
