Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’ Is Stunning When Her Goddaughter Delivers This Rendition

Miley Cyrus’s image as a performer has changed quite a bit in the last few years, but one thing always remains the same: her musical roots and training are strong. What many people don’t know about the young star is that, along with being Billy Ray Cyrus’s daughter, she is also the goddaughter of superstar Dolly Parton.

In December of 2012, Miley Cyrus filmed and recorded her Backyard Sessions, in which she and her band played folksy and stripped down versions of some of Miley’s favorite songs. One of these songs was none other than ‘Jolene,’ written by Dolly Parton as the title track on an album of the same name. It was named number 217 in Rolling Stonemagazine’s 2004 list, ‘The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.’
