Music Review- Pentatonix and Dolly Parton: Jolene


Presented by Cracker Barrel, country music superstar Dolly Parton teams-up with a Capella band Pentatonix for an epic remix of Parton’s iconic country music song Jolene.

Pentatonix and Dolly Parton coming together for this song was an absolute treat. Mixed with the band’s all vocal talent, Parton shows off her singing skills and how she can go to the next level. “Jolene” is one of her most recognizable songs and covering it with this new twist was no small feat, however, the whole team pulled it off with excellence.

The original version of the song was released as single in 1973 and then as part of her thirteen studio album, also called Jolene. Parton claims that the inspiration from the song came from a bank teller flirting with her husband and the name is derived from a fan she met backstage at a concert.

UPDATE:  Dolly Parton was nominated for two Grammys when the song was first released, but unfortunately, she did not win. This new version of the song did win at the 2017 Grammys for “Best Country Duo/Group Performance.”
