Beyonce Leaves Dolly Parton 'Very Excited' With Upcoming Country Album 'Renaissance Act II'

The 'Break My Soul' hitmaker also receives a congratulatory message from the 'I Will Always Love You' singer after 'Texas Hold 'Em' debuted at No. 1 on Country Chart.

AceShowbiz - Dolly Parton has publicly voiced her support for Beyonce Knowles amid the latter's new country era. The "I Will Always Love You" songstress declared that she is "very excited" for the "Break My Soul" hitmaker's upcoming country album "Renaissance Act II".

On Thursday, February 22, the 78-year-old country superstar took to Instagram to show her support for Queen Bey. She uploaded a photo featuring a message that read, "I'm a big fan of Beyonce and very excited that she's done a country album."

In the same note, Dolly sent a congratulatory message to the 42-year-old singer for the success of her new country single titled "Texas Hold 'Em". She went on to write, "So congratulations on your Billboard Hot Country number one single. Can't wait to hear the full album! Love, Dolly." Along with the statement, Dolly simply added a red heart emoji in the caption of the post.

The post came less than two weeks after Beyonce broke the news of her new album. During the Super Bowl on February 11, she announced that she will be releasing a second part of her acclaimed 2022 album "Renaissance" on March 29. That same day, she simultaneously unleashed her country songs "Texas Hold 'Em" and "16 Carriages".

More than one week later, Billboard reported that Bey became the first black woman to ever reach No. 1 on its Hot Country Songs Chart. Her song "Texas Hold 'Em" debuted atop the tally as it drew 19.2 million official streams with 4.8 million in all-format airplay audience and 39,000 in sales in the U.S. through February 15, according to Luminate.

Aside from the particular track, "16 Carriages" entered Billboard's Hot Country Songs Chart. The single landed at No. 9 on the tally with 10.3 million streams, 90,000 in radio reach and 14,000 in sales.

Recently, it was said that Beyonce's country songs have helped increase stream activities for other black women's country singles. Among the singers who received more streams since the "Texas Hold 'Em" and "16 Carriages" releases were Tanner Adell, Reyna Roberts, K. Michelle and Linda Martell.
