Moreover, Dolly Parton always sings “Jolene” to her performances and concerts. Perhaps, it is because it helped her career rise to prominence. On the other hand, Miley Cyrus has already covered the song. In addition, The Pentatonix released their cover featuring Parton, too. It even earned them a Grammy Award for “Best Country Duo/Group Performance.”

Jolene

As mentioned above, Dolly Parton wrote the words and lyrics of “Jolene.” It was released in October 1973 under album of the same name. It is the only original song of Parton that’s mostly covered by other artists.

In 2004, The Rolling Stones ranked the song at No.217 for the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time.” Meanwhile, “Jolene” received two nominations at the Grammy Awards for “Best Female Country Vocal Performance.” Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to bag the awards. Nevertheless, 43 years, after its initial release, Dolly Parton along with The Pentatonix won an award from the Grammy as “Best Country Duo/Group Performance.”

The song was certified platinum all over the globe. Country music enthusiasts appreciated one of Dolly Parton’s best self-penned singles. In fact, it topped various country charts. “Jolene” peaked at number one spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart on February 2, 1974.
