    Her country song "Jolene" was released in 1973, and yet it still sounds fresh 46 years later.

    She also penned the original "I Will Always Love You," which was famously rerecorded by Whitney Houston.

    So yeah, Dolly's a big fucking deal.

    Lil Nas X also recognized her iconic status when he personally requested for the 73-year-old singer to hop on the remix to his breakout hit, "Old Town Road," along with newcomer Megan Thee Stallion.

    y’all think i can get dolly parton and megan thee stallion on a old town road remix?

    The country-rap bop has been No. 1 on the Billboard charts for 15 weeks now (and counting). A remix featuring Dolly would surely help secure the record for most weeks at No. 1.

    Well, Lil Nas X just might be in luck. On Wednesday, Dolly responded to his tweet, and it looks like she's ready to take her horse to the "Old Town Road."

    It didn't take long for fans to get excited over how epic this remix would be.

    @DollyParton @LilNasX Dolly Parton the LEGEND? And Meghan thee STALLION??? ON THE SAME TRACK?!? OMG 🐎🐎🐎

    This person suggested country legend Reba McEntire jump on the remix, too.

    @DollyParton @robertcyoung @LilNasX Please call Reba too!

    One person predicted the song would be No. 1 for 120 weeks. (Highly likely, tbh.)

    @DollyParton @LilNasX Hi. This account is from the future. The time is 2078 and THE TABLE IS STILL SHAKING by this collab. It’s gone Diamond & Digital-Multi Diamond. Its still in the Hot 100 after debuting at #1 (Peak #1 *120 weeks*)

    And this guy summed up my reaction to Dolly's response perfectly.
