Could we stan Dolly any more than we already do? Apparently so. On learning that Lil Nas X had covered Jolene on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge (see performance below), she responded in the perfect Dolly way.
Taking to her Instagram, she posted a snap of the two fo them and said : “I was so excited when someone told me that Lil Nas X had done my song “Jolene”. I had to find it and listen to it immediately…and it’s really, really good. Of course, I love him anyway. I was surprised and I’m honored and flattered. I hope he does good for both of us. Thank you @lilnasx 🦋”
Lil Nas X of course came to prominence with the country cross over smash Old Town Road which smashed records worldwide. Little did we know what was to come from Lil Nas X or the queer icon that was to emerge just a couple of years later. His debut album Montero was recently released to critical acclaim.
