Shortly after Lil Nas X performed Dolly Parton's hit song, "Jolene," for BBC Radio One’s Live Lounge on Sept. 21, the country music legend praised the 22-year-old for his rendition of the melody.

“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,” Parton wrote on Instagram. “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.”
