Dolly Parton Predicted Beyoncé Would Cover ‘Jolene’ Two Years Ago: ‘Wouldn’t That Be Killer?’

Dolly Parton expressed her desire to hear her hit song 'Jolene' covered by Beyonce nearly two years ago.

Today is officially a “marvelous day” in Dolly Parton ‘s life since she practically willed Beyoncé’s cover of “Jolene,” on the just-released Cowboy Carter album, into existence a couple of years ago. “I’m still a Creole banjee bitch from Louisianne.” And where Parton sounded meek and pleading, Beyoncé whispered, “Don’t try me.” The powerhouse moment comes toward the end when a choir sings along with her. As Noah noted, artists have covered the tune countless times, with internationally charting versions coming from Olivia Newton-John, the White Stripes, and Pentatonix with Parton.
