These days, it seems like Dolly Parton is everywhere – not that I’m complaining. With the release of her long-awaited studio album Pure & Simple and its accompanying tour, Parton fans have had plenty to celebrate. Now, the beloved country legend is teaming up with another popular music for a new spin on one of her classic hits.
The Texas-based a cappella group Pentatonix first broke into the mainstream after winning the third season of The Sing-Off in 2011. Since then, they’ve released multiple albums and covered everyone from Sugarland to Kanye West. Now, they’ve released a very special, stripped-down version of “Jolene” with Parton herself.
It’s hard to believe that every note heard in this rendition is actually being made by a human voice. The members of Pentatonix expertly show off their talents while still letting Parton’s vocals shine in the forefront.
If you just can’t get enough Dolly, don’t you worry. A sequel to her record-breaking television movie, Coat of Many Colors, is coming to television this holiday season.
Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love will follow the story of the Parton family as they deal with a harsh blizzard and financial difficulties. You can check it out when it premieres on Nov. 30 via NBC.
