Dolly Parton was born January 19th 1946 to her mother Avie and her father Robert Lee. The Tennessee born Parton has had many amazing renditions, original songs, and classic moments that only prove to make us love her more. One timeless classic that will go down in the annals of time as one of the most amazingly prolific songs, full or energy, power, and intense emotional presence, has got to be her second solo single “Jolene.”
As country charts noticed Parton, her presence only expanded massively outwards. With “Jolene” being recorded and covered many times by a slew of different performers. The devil truly is in the details, as something otherworldly and overwhelmingly powerful seems to come from the speakers as you listen to this song. The genuine emotion that seems to pour organically, purposefully, meaningfully. It’s hard to give it justice by only using words. She works as seamlessly as a poet does when it comes to many of the lyrics and rhythms that accompany many a great pianist.
When everything comes together, you’ll realize why even Rolling Stone ranked it on the “%00 Greatest Songs Of All Time,” list. The subtle but forceful pauses only go to illuminate the powerful emotional connection one feels when listening to this song. It’s not just the singing, but the pauses that help emphasis the greatly felt emotional impact of losing someone you love.
When you hear how they changed it though? I couldn’t stop listening.
