Dolly Parton and Pentatonix Perform an Awesome A Cappella Version of ‘Jolene’

Dolly Parton has been super busy with her Simple and Pure tour this year and she has been wowing crowds all over the country.  I had the pleasure of seeing her show in June when she came to Forest Hills, NY and, let me tell you; I have never heard a crowd cheer as loudly as they did after she sang her hit song Jolene.

Originally released in 1973, Jolene became Parton’s second solo number-one single on the country charts and has since been covered by some of the biggest names in the business (The White Stripes, Katy Perry, Ellie Goulding and Miley Cyrus, just to name a few).

Earlier this week, a cappella super group Pentatonix released a brand new video featuring Parton’s classic tune.  Not only does the video show the incredible a cappella rendition of the song but, Dolly Parton herself is featured on lead vocals.

Take a listen and let us know what you think of this version of Jolene in the comments section below!
