“Well, I think it was very bold of her,” Barton said.

Parton provided an introduction to Beyoncé’s version of Jolene On the Cowboy Carter Album. “Hello, Miss Honeybee. It’s Dolly Bee. You know that slut with the pretty hair you sang about? She reminded me of someone I knew at one time. Except she’s got flaming strands of auburn hair. Bless her heart. Just hair of a different color, but it hurts.” Himself”.

For her version, Beyoncé’s lyrics took a more aggressive approach. “I’m warning you, don’t come for my leg” instead of “Please don’t take my leg.”
