Dolly Parton and Kacey Musgraves have a lot in common: They both slayed their performances at the 2019 Grammy Awards; they’re both legends in the country music community; and they’re total fashion icons, to boot. But is their uncanny likeness just a coincidence? Some think it’s just a little too convenient, ladies.
A recent fan theory has come to light suggesting that Dolly and Kacey are actually mother and daughter, and while yes, we realize this is ridiculous, we can also kind of see it? And when we say kind of, we mean the resemblance👏is👏real. Let’s step back and take a look at all the information.
One Twitter user uploaded a photo of the country queens side-by-side, and you can’t deny that they look a lot alike. Both are boasting big hair, big lashes, and sweet smiles that totally back up the caption, which reads: “kacey musgraves is dolly parton’s daughter: a conspiracy theory.”
Alexandra, the brains behind the idea, continued to post collages of the duo that only further prove she might be onto something. The pictures included Dolly and Kacey holding dogs, rocking gingham shirts, wearing cowboy hats, and even snuggling up with some horses. “The evidence is there good luck trying to deny it,” she finished her report.
Many took to social media to back up Alexandra, writing, “No wonder I fell in love with @KaceyMusgraves. She’s @DollyParton Jr,” and, “This is my new favorite conspiracy.” (Same.)
And before you shrug off the idea altogether, may we present the most important piece of evidence, which is that Kacey retweeted the thread, and tagged Dolly, and Dolly responded. We’re just saying, that can’t be ignored.
Though Dolly and her husband Carl Dean never had children, and Kacey’s mom is apparently a lovely woman named Karen—Kacey even wrote a song about her on —we’re still over here ready to support any hint that Kacey and Dolly are somehow related. It could happen!
