Ever since her career began flourishing in 1967, Dolly Parton never stopped impressing us, being one of the biggest stars of country music and one of the best-selling recording artists of all time – among all the other things she can do, being a businesswoman, actress, and philanthropist.
She has indeed accomplished more than most people hope to in their lifetime, that some days we find ourselves wondering, what can’t Dolly Parton do?
Her Talent Is Something That Continues To Amaze Fans
In addition to her long list of amazing talents, yodeling is also in her bag of tricks.
Yodeling is a type of singing that involves suddenly changing from a natural voice to a falsetto and back – and this is absolutely no easy feat!
We actually found a short clip of young Dolly Parton sweetly singing the classic hit, “Mule Skinner Blues” by none other than Jimmie Rodger, who’s described by many as “The Father of Country Music.” Meanwhile, Dolly’s performance happened at The Porter Wagoner Show, where she did not only showcase her incredible range but set down her hidden yodeling talent on full display.
Dolly has also recorded her version of “Mule Skinner Blues” in 1970 for her album The Best of Dolly Parton. It turned out to be a massive success, peaking at No. 3 on the country chart in the United States. But what’s even more amazing is that her rendition led to her first solo Grammy nomination in 1971 for Best Country Vocal Female Performance.
So, if you want Dolly Parton to sweep you off your feet once again, you can check out the video below. The young Dolly is brimming with a smile, making it look like yodeling is just like a child’s game. That’s how effortlessly Dolly seemed to handle it!
