One thing Dolly Parton knows is music!
So if she thinks Beyonce is a good fit to remake her 1974 song, Jolene who are we to argue? Jolene has been recorded over 400 times in various languages but never a big hit. Nobody’s ever had a really big hit record on it. I’ve always hoped somebody might do that, someone like Beyonce. Dolly is the only artist to have a top 20 hit on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart in 7 decades starting in the 1960s. She has the most #1 hits by a female artist on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with 25.
