“I’m a big fan of Beyoncé and very excited that she’s done a country album. So congratulations on your Billboard Hot Country number one single. Can’t wait to hear the full album!” Dolly captioned her post, adding a heart emoji for good measure. Clearly, it’s all about spreading love.

If there’s anyone in the country music world whose opinion matters on this matter, it’s Dolly Parton. With her established legacy, she can undoubtedly speak on behalf of the entire community.

The fact that Dolly is publicly praising Beyoncé speaks volumes and should silence the critics.

Nearly every major country artist has expressed enthusiasm about Beyoncé venturing into their territory, and even Black country musicians have voiced their support.

Darius Rucker recently shared his excitement, stating that he couldn’t wait to hear what Beyoncé had in store for ‘Act II’ and expressing his hope that it would earn her the Album of the Year Grammy, a coveted award she has yet to secure.

As for Beyoncé herself, she’s let her music speak for her. Songs like “Texas Hold ‘Em” and “16 Carriages” have been receiving widespread acclaim, especially the former, which currently sits at the top of the charts.

There was some controversy surrounding the release of Beyoncé’s music last week, with allegations that certain radio stations were intentionally excluding her songs from their rotation.

While there may have been some truth to those claims, it’s clear that Beyoncé’s music is now getting the recognition it deserves, as evidenced by its impressive performance on the charts. Beyoncé has made a remarkable entrance into the country music scene, and it looks like there’s much more to come.
