Dolly and Miley to Debut “Jolene”
Dolly Parton and Miley Cyrus debut their spirited take on Dolly’s classic hit "Jolene" in a television special first airing tomorrow (July 3) at 8 p.m. ET on the Hallmark Channel.
The special, Dolly Parton Celebrates 25 Years of Dollywood, also includes appearances by Reba McEntire, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Kenny Rogers and others. But Dolly says she’s a fairy godmother for only one—Miley.
"I'm just real proud of her,” Dolly told the Associated Press. “She does not need my advice, but she's often asking for information and advice, and I tell her what I know, but I think the girl's doing all right without me," Dolly said.
Miley’s dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, is happy that Dolly’s a role model for his daughter. "It's great that she has someone like Dolly to idolize, someone to look up to," Billy Ray told the AP. "Having that type of influence in her life, it's so amazing and so special."
The show will air multiple times. Go to hallmarkchannel.com for additional information.
