Dolly Parton hopes Beyoncé will cover ‘Jolene’ someday

Dolly Parton and Beyonce

“Jolene” singer Dolly Parton admits she would love Beyonce to release a cover of the iconic hit track.

The 74-year-old singer is proud that so many artists have covered her 1974 classic single but she is still hopeful that one day a major artist will record their own take on the track and enjoy a “really big hit” with it.

She told Big Issue magazine: “’Jolene’ has been recorded more than any other song that I have ever written.”

“It has been recorded worldwide over 400 times in lots of different languages by lots of different bands.”

“The White Stripes did a wonderful job of it, and many other people. But nobody’s ever had a really big hit record on it.”

“I’ve always hoped somebody might do someday, someone like Beyonce.”

Meanwhile, one of Dolly’s proudest moments was the reaction to the late Whitney Houston‘s 1992 take on her song “I Will Always Love You”.

“I had a number one with ‘I Will Always Love You’ twice – once in the 70s, then I did it in the movie The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, and had another number one in the 80s. And then Whitney did it and it was considered one of the greatest love songs of all time. Still to this day I take a lot of pride in that.”
