There’s also mention of Dolly P - likely a reference to Dolly Parton - and a track titled Jolene, a reference to one of Parton’s best-known songs.

Earlier this month in an interview with Knox News celebrating the seasonal opening of her amusement park Dollywood, Parton said she thinks Beyonce has recorded a cover of her 1973 hit.

“Well, I think she has,” she said. “I think she’s recorded Jolene and I think it’s probably gonna be on her country album, which I’m very excited about that.”

The track list also mentions Smoke Hour Willie Nelson but it is not immediately clear if Nelson is involved with the project.
