Dolly Parton and Pentatonix Put a New Spin on “Jolene” That You Have to Hear!

Dolly Parton’s songs have been covered and reinvented by numerous artists from Reba McEntire to Cyndi Lauper (not to mention Whitney Houston), however sometimes it’s a collaboration she does with other musicians, especially young artists, that stands out.

Pentatonix is an a cappella group from Texas who won the third season of The Sing-Off on NBC in 2011. They’ve teamed up with other musicians before but Dolly Parton brings superstar status with her! The new video has been viewed over 6 million times in just the first 2 days since release!

“Jolene” stands out as one of Dolly’s epic pieces whether it’s performed by one voice and guitar or a full band. It’s been performed by many musicians in the past 43 years but you’ve never heard “Jolene” like this before! “Jolene” with 6 voices, a capella, is intense and haunting!

See for yourself!

Ever the humble musician, Dolly Parton thanks Pentatonix in a tweet announcing the new video:
