Dolly Parton Reacts To Lil Nas X’s Cover Of ‘Jolene

“Jolene” is probably the most-covered song of Dolly Parton’s discography.

Olivia Newton-John, The White Stripes, and more have all offered their takes on the song, and last week added another high-profile version to the pile.

Lil Nas X dropped his version of the song on BBC1 during a Live Lounge set, infusing it with a heavy note of despair and, for what it’s worth, Dolly approves.

Parton got on social media today to dispense her saint-in-all-but-name blessing to Nas’ spin on the song, calling it, “Really good.”
