Dolly Parton, a country music star, has come forward to congratulate worldwide pop sensation Beyoncé on her foray into country music. Parton, known for her timeless classics like “Jolene” and “9 to 5,” took to Instagram on Thursday, February 22, to voice her support for Beyoncé’s next country album, “Renaissance Act II.”

The 78-year-old superstar posted a poignant statement on Instagram, expressing her appreciation for Beyoncé and excitement about her next country album. The remark, which included a red heart emoji, piqued fans’ interest and enthusiasm for Beyoncé’s artistic progression.

Parton’s support comes on the heels of Beyoncé’s breakthrough entry into the country music market. The revelation of “Renaissance Act II” during her Super Bowl performance on February 11th sent shockwaves through the music industry. Beyoncé debuted two country tracks, “Texas Hold ‘Em” and “16 Carriages,” signifying a radical departure from her pop and R&B background.

The seismic impact of Beyoncé’s country debut echoed across charts, with “Texas Hold ‘Em” creating history by propelling her to the top of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. As the first black woman to top this coveted chart, Beyoncé broke down barriers and pushed the boundaries of country music, stunning audiences with her lyrical performance and distinct flare.

According to Billboard’s report, startling numbers highlight Beyoncé’s domination in the country music world. According to Luminate, “Texas Hold ‘Em” had 19.2 million official streams, an all-format radio audience of 4.8 million, and 39,000 sales in the United States as of February 15. Meanwhile, “16 Carriages” peaked at No. 9 on the Hot Country Songs Chart, with 10.3 million streams, 90,000 radio impressions, and 14,000 sales.

Beyond Beyoncé’s individual accomplishments, her entry into country music has sparked a chain reaction, increasing the visibility and recognition of other black female performers in the genre. Tanner Adell, Reyna Roberts, K. Michelle, and Linda Martell all saw an increase in streaming activity following the release of Beyoncé’s country hits, demonstrating the transforming impact of her musical influence.
