Dolly Parton recently commended Beyoncè for being the first Black woman in history to top Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with her latest single "Texas Hold 'Em." The Queen of Country took to social media to congratulate the "Halo" hitmaker, sharing that she has always been a "big Beyoncè fan."

"I am a big fan of Beyoncè and very excited that she's doing a country album. So, congratulations on your Billboard Hot Country number one single." ABC News properly referred to the sweet message as Dolly welcoming Queen B into "the country music family."

Dolly also expressed that she cannot wait to hear Beyoncé's country album in its entirety when it comes out next month. Slated for release on March 29th, Act II (Beyoncé's eighth studio album) will feature the aforementioned chart-topping single, as well as "16 Carriages," and other unreleased country tracks.

Fans sounded off in the comment section of Dolly's post, encouraging the two fabulous queens to collaborate in the future.

"Dolly Beyoncé collab maybe? Just a thought."

Speaking of queens, Queen Latifah also reached out to Dolly in the comments saying, "Love You Dolly!!!" with a handful of heart emojis. Additionally, Oprah relayed support for the post commenting, "Legends supporting legends ❤"

Dolly, who knows a thing or two about breaking down genre barriers, released her rock & roll album Rockstar late last year, featuring special guests Sting, Kid Rock, Steven Tyler, Stevie Nicks, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Chris Stapleton, Miley Cyrus, Elton John, Lizzo, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, and Lynyrd Skynyrd to name a few. To celebrate her birthday on January 19th, the "9 to 5" hitmaker released a handful of additional tracks that were not included in the original release of the album.

Fans can listed to Dolly's latest record and the two released Act II tracks off Beyoncè's highly-anticipated country album on iHeartRadio now!
