This video features one of the most amazing renditions of Dolly Parton’s famous 1973’s classic hit “Jolene”. Even though there are many renditions of this song, this one in the video has become my favorite. This cover has been presented to us by Alexandra Kay. She is a really good singer and loves to sing country music, bluegrass and anything else with that good old-fashioned “twang”!
According to Parton, “Jolene” is the most-recorded song by other artists that she has ever written. She is very proud of this song. Parton shares that this song was inspired by a red-headed bank clear who flirted with her husband Carl Dean at his local bank branch around the time they were newly married. She even says that the name “Jolene” was actually the name of her young fan who came on stage for her autograph.
