Beyoncé ‘Cowboy Carter’ tracklist hints at Dolly Parton ‘Jolene’ cover, Willie Nelson collaboration

Beyoncé Knowles Carter released more art and details about her “Act II: Cowboy Carter” album, leaving fans to surmise a potential track list and other surprises.

Queen Bey shared a graphic on her Instagram on Wednesday, just days before the release of her highly anticipated album on March 29.

Beyoncé included 27 phrases in the post (we added extra information in parentheses):

Ameriican Requiem
16 Carriages (the title of one of her first singles)
My Rose
Smoke Hour Willie Nelson (Nelson is a country music legend)
Texas Hold ‘Em (the title of one of her first singles)
Dolly P (likely referring to country music legend Dolly Parton)
Jolene (one of Parton’s classic songs)
Daughter (this might refer Beyoncé’s daughter Blue Ivy Carter)
Alliigator Tears
Smoke Hour II
Just for Fun
II Most Wanted
Levii’s Jeans
The Linda Martell Show (Martell is a country music legend)
Ya Ya
Oh Louisiana (Beyoncé’s mom’s family is from Louisiana)
Desert Eagle
II Hands II Heaven
Sweet Honey Buckin’

In some of the phrases Beyoncé swaps out the letter “I” for “II,” likely to emphasize this is “Act II” of an expected three-part project. This is apparent in “Ameriican Requiem,” “II Most Wanted,” “Spaghettii” and others.

The post led many fans to believe the phrases are the names of the tracks on the album, and many are worth noting.

Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’
In the post, Beyoncé includes the Queen of country “Dolly P” as well as her 1973 classic “Jolene.” Of course, fans have suspected she might cover the hit song or feature Dolly Parton in some way, after Parton alluded to the idea to Knox News, part of the USA TODAY Network.

“Well, I think she has! 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,” Parton said during a one-on-one interview about the season opening of Dollywood.

“I love her!” Parton said of Beyoncé. “She’s a beautiful girl and a great singer.”

Smoke Hour Willie Nelson
Willie Nelson is a country music legend. A fellow Texas native, Nelson wrote his first song at the age of 7 and joined his first band at 10. He became widely known as a leader of the outlaw country subgenre, which emerged in the 1960s in retaliation to the conservative constraints and pop-oriented sound that dominated the Nashville scene.

Beyoncé references Nelson under the “Smoke Hour,” possibly hinting at a song title that features the titan in some compacity.

The Linda Martell Show
The post also references Linda Martell. Martell is a trailblazing country music artist and widely known as one of the genre’s first prominent Black female artists.

Her hit “Color Him Father” reached No. 22 on Billboard’s Country Songs chart. She was also the first Black female solo country artist to perform on the Grand Ole Opry. In 1970 Martell released her debut album, “Color Me Country,” but she wound up retiring from the industry in the mid-1970s.

As fans know, Beyoncé first released singles “16 Carriages” and “Texas Hold ‘Em” during a surprise Super Bowl commercial on Feb 11. Since then, the two songs have taken the internet by storm and the Beyhive has been buzzing with speculation about the new project.
