Dolly Parton’s Goddaughter Miley Cyrus Attempts To Sing “Jolene”

It’s been over 50 years since Dolly Parton took the music industry by storm with her hit single “Jolene”, but the famous tune remains a favorite among many people. Dolly not only wrote the song but almost made it popular by singing it on the radio. Over the years, countless other people have attempted to sing “Jolene”, adding their own twist to the classic.

Just when we didn’t think that it was really possible to match Dolly’s rendition of “Jolene”, another singer has helped it rise to the top of music favorite lists again. This time, it’s Dolly’s own goddaughter that’s making it famous. You might have heard of her before – her name is Miley Cyrus.

That’s right! Miley Cyrus, the popular daughter of Country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, is also a godchild of Dolly Parton. Since the two share a close bond, it only makes sense that Miley’s version would be ready to knock off our socks and it certainly does just that!

Miley showcased the song during a series of YouTube videos she made called “Backyard Sessions”. In the video, we see Miley singing along with a complete band. Dressed in a simple country top with her hair pulled up in a bun, Miley is the picture of a beautiful country girl.

When Miley steps up to the mic and begins singing, we can tell that there is something special about this rendition. She sings with heart and passion, putting her all into the song. As she sings, we can see the emotion that she feels written clearly across her face.

Miley is known for singing a wide variety of different types of music, and this song is proof that Country music is still very much a part of her heart.

Dolly Parton may be the queen of the song “Jolene” but, thanks to Miley’s new rendition, it’s now possible to honestly say that even Dolly has a little bit of competition.
