Dolly Parton’s songs have been covered and reinvented by numerous artists from Reba McEntire to Cyndi Lauper (not to mention Whitney Houston), however sometimes it’s a collaboration she does with other musicians, especially young artists, that stands out.

Pentatonix is an a cappella group from Texas who won the third season of The Sing-Off on NBC in 2011. They’ve teamed up with other musicians before but Dolly Parton brings superstar status with her! The new video has been viewed over 6 million times in just the first 2 days since release!

“Jolene” stands out as one of Dolly’s epic pieces whether it’s performed by one voice and guitar or a full band. It’s been performed by many musicians in the past 43 years but you’ve never heard “Jolene” like this before! “Jolene” with 6 voices, a capella, is intense and haunting!

See for yourself!

Ever the humble musician, Dolly Parton thanks Pentatonix in a tweet announcing the new video:

Isn’t she amazing? What do you think of this new version? Tell us your favorite Dolly Parton song and give this new spin a share!
