We all know that out of everybody in BTS, Jungkook is probably the biggest country fan!
Whether it’s the literal countryside…
Or country music! His love for the genre was evident in his reaction to the tribute performance for MusiCares Person Of The Year, Dolly Parton, at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards. Dolly herself sang some of her iconic hits with fellow singers Kacey Musgraves, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Little Big Town, and Maren Morris. He couldn’t help but get emotional during “After The Gold Rush,” especially as he even teared up and showed the members his goosebumps. Legends recognize legends, after all!
After seeing another clip of BTS’s reaction to her “Jolene” performance with goddaughter Miley Cyrus, Dolly even teased at the possibility of collaborating with the group in the future. How iconic would that be?

Still, one wonders have these two iconic artists even met each other before? Now, we have finally gotten answers in a new clip released by iHeartRadio Most Requested Live AskAnythingChat! BTS were asked during the interview if they have had gotten to meet Dolly at the GRAMMYs.
At first, the members didn’t seem too sure. In fact, it caused a debate among the members over whether they really did meet her or not. V and J-Hope even replied sadly, “No…”
After being reminded by Jin and Suga, the group recalled having met the country superstar backstage. Finally, it was confirmed that these legends had had an interaction (but unfortunately offscreen).
Ah, backstage. …We met her in private.
We hope to see a full interaction between BTS and Queen Dolly in the future (perhaps in a collaboration). We can only imagine how amazing they would be together.
