Dolly Parton Makes an A Cappella Group’s Dreams Come True

By Lola Augustine Brown

If you were lucky enough to see Dolly Parton as she made her way across Canada recently, you probably sang along as she belted out “Jolene,” but you won’t have heard her perform it like this. She just recorded this beautiful version of her 1974 hit with Grammy winning a cappella group Pentatonix.

Parton announced how much fun she had recording with the group on Twitter (she’s very active on social media) and said that they experience was “pure magic.” Whether you’re a country music fan or not, you have to admit that Dolly Parton is always out there doing something fun and new, and working hard with no signs of slowing down at 70.
