 Beyoncé’s new album COWBOY CARTER may be an ode to her country roots, but one of the people who inspired her to make it is actually an indie rock icon. On Tuesday (April 2), Jack White shared a couple photos on Instagram showing off a bouquet of flowers the singer sent him with a heartfelt note that read: "Jack, I hope you are well. I just wanted you to know how much you inspired me on this record. Sending you my love, Beyoncé.”

"What a sweet gesture to receive here in Nashville this morning from the talented and gracious @beyonce celebrating her new Cowboy Carter album," he captioned the post. "Much love and respect to you Madam, and thank you kindly. Keep making beautiful and powerful music, nobody sings like you."

Although the former White Stripes frontman wasn't featured on this album, he collaborated with Beyoncé on 2016's Lemonade, lending his guitar and vocals to "Don't Hurt Yourself." The duo now have another thing in common too: They've both covered Dolly Parton's "Jolene."

Fans were beside themselves and hope this means the pop star will dabble in rock next.

"ACT III ROCK ALBUM CONFIRMED," one fan wrote in the comments.

"So word around the campfire is she might do a rock record next. Pleaseeeeeeeeee be all over itttttttt," wrote another.
