Beyonce recently released the cover to her upcoming an album that was shot by a fellow Texan.

The music world is already in an uproar thanks to Beyonce's upcoming "Country" album called "act ii: Cowboy Carter" which is set to drop next week.

In the run up to the album's release, she posted what is assumed to be the album's cover art and the widely talked and shared cover went viral, much to the surprise of a photographer who moved from Tyler a decade ago to pursue his dreams.

Blair Caldwell is A Graduate Of Tyler Legacy (Robert E. Lee) High In Tyler.

Caldwell is a "photographer to the stars" and all you have to do is check his social media to see that he has snapped photos of some of the world's biggest stars and now it  looks like he's the "official" photog for fellow Texan Beyonce.

He took to social media to share the news that he was the photog who snapped what will soon be the iconic photo of Beyonce riding side-saddle and according to a post on his Instagram page, this is the moment he's waited his entire career for.

"I moved to LA from Tyler,Tx 10 years ago..."

Caldwell went on to thank Beyonce and her team for the opportunity and hopefully his work will inspire other young East Texans to pursue their dreams. We extend our congratulations to Mr. Caldwell!

Let's take a look at some more of his amazing work.
