Dolly Parton shows love to Beyoncé on her latest country single: ‘Can’t wait to hear the full album!’

The "Renaissance" singer and performer announced the release of her country album set to drop on March 29.

Dolly Parton welcomed the singer into the country music genre with open arms in a recent post on Instagram.

“I’m a big fan of Beyoncé and very excited that she’s done a country album,” Parton wrote on Thursday. “So congratulations on your Billboard Hot Country number one single. Can’t wait to hear the full album!”

The country icon’s public support follows the controversy after an Oklahoma country station did not play “Texas Hold ‘Em” after a listener requested it. The Beyhive and other fans of the multi-hyphenate artist flooded the station with calls to play the song after the initial denial.

After receiving massive backlash from fans and online criticisms alluding to “blatant racism,” the station responded, claiming they were unaware of the song’s release at the time. The station has since honored the request of listeners and added the country hit to its airwaves, TODAY reports.

Since the release of “Texas Hold ‘Em,” Beyoncé made history as the first Black woman to reach No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart on Tuesday. In addition to her history-making chart-topping single, she is the second woman to achieve that Billboard musical feat, The Wrap reports.
