Dolly Parton has shared her thoughts on Lil Nas X's cover of her 1973 hit, Jolene, and it's all positive.

Lil Nas X performed the track on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, and it's been a hit with fans.

"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," Dolly captioned a photo of herself with the Old Town Road hitmaker 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 @lilnasx [sic]," she added.
