Rumors have been swirling for months that Beyoncé may have covered Dolly Parton's hit song "Jolene" and it's now confirmed. When Beyoncé’s shared the track list for her album on March 27, the song "Jolene" was featured prominently on the graphic and Parton took to social media to share her excitement.

"Listen to my original 'Jolene' while you wait for @Beyonce’s COWBOY CARTER," she wrote on X.

Even before the news was confirmed, the Queen of Country spoke out about a potential "Jolene" cover in early March during an interview with?Knox News.

"I think she’s recorded ‘Jolene’ and I think it’s probably gonna be on her country album, which I’m very excited about that,”?she said. “I love her! She’s a beautiful girl and a great singer.”

Parton went on to explain that she and Beyoncé have "kind of sent messages back and forth through the years."

This isn't the first time Parton has spoken publicly about her admiration for the "Texas Hold 'Em" singer. The country legend previously posted on Instagram to share her excitement for Beyoncé's new country album.

“I’m a big fan of Beyoncé and very excited that she’s done a country album,” Parton said on Feb. 22. “So congratulations on your?Billboard?Hot Country number one single. Can’t wait to hear the full album!”

Cyrus previously collaborated with both Beyoncé and Rihanna in 2008 for a performance at a Stand Up to Cancer event. In 2023, the "Flowers" singer recalled the special moment during an installment of her "Used to Be Young" TikTok series.

“What I remember most from doing this performance is I was standing in between two of the big legends and icons that I was looking up to at the time, and they treated me like a little sister the entire time,” she said. “They were being really sweet.”

Country musician Tanner Adell lent her vocals to Beyoncé’s?cover of the Beatles’?"Blackbird," on her album.

When Adell initially heard about "Cowboy Carter," the 20-year-old posted a video on TikTok expressing how psyched she was for the new music.

"If you know me at all, you know, Beyoncé is my number one favorite entertainer and one of the entertainers I look up to most. She's an incredible vocalist, dancer, writer, woman and mother and i cannot wait for this album," she captioned the post.

Then, during an interview with NBC’s Emilie Ikeda that aired on TODAY March 29, the Lexington, Kentucky native opened up about the impact the singer has had on life and career.

"This woman single-handedly got me through the pandemic," Adell said. "I watched 'Homecoming,' her documentary from the Coachella performance of 'Homecoming.' I watched it every single day in 2020 and that's really what got me through. She's inspired me in so many ways and the biggest way hasn't even been sonically so much."

Adell also noted that the album will likely have a "seismic" affect on country music and its artists.

"The butterfly effect from this album will span probably the rest of our lives and for me, it felt very important to be able to support other girls that are in the same position as me and being Black women in country music," she added.

For the song “Protector,” Beyoncé enlisted her six-year-old daughter Rumi for the heartwarming track.

At the beginning of the song, Rumi can be heard in an audio snippet where she says, “Mom, can I hear the lullaby please?”

The song appears to be a tribute to her children — twins Rumi and Sir, as well as her 12-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter — as she sings, “I will lead you down that road if you lose your way / Born to be a protector / Even though I know someday you’re gonna shine on your own / I will be your projector.”
