Well hello, Dolly. 

There’s no hotter song on the planet right now than Lil Nas X’s "Old Town Road," and there’s no finer artist walking this earth than Dolly Parton, a multi-hyphenate talent with more than 3,000 compositions to her name and multiple entries in the Guinness Book of World Records.

So, imagine Dolly getting on that horse? Don’t bet on it, though Lil Nas X has put the idea to the country great. Her response is all-class.

The Atlanta rapper asked Twitter, “y’all think i can get Dolly Parton and Megan Thee Stallion on a Old Town Road remix?”

Twitter responded. And so too did Dolly. For a laugh, the Country Music Hall of Famer tweeted a graphic of three gorgeous horses, a striking pink one beside Lil Nas X’s black mount and Billy Ray Cyrus’ brown beast. It's accompanied with a unicorn emoji. Dream on. 

Lil Nas X’s "Old Town Road" shows no sign of ending its incredible journey, which has seen the track clock up 15 weeks at the summit of the Billboard Hot 100 and is one week away from tying the all-time record.

Dolly isn’t the only diva invited to hop on board. Over the weekend, the rapper tweeted that "deep down inside i wanna release another old town road remix," just a day after a new cut was released with assists from “yodellng kid” Mason Ramsey and Young Thug, alongside Billy Ray Cyrus. The rapper put the question direct to Mariah Carey, and got an enthusiastic response.
