Country quartet Little Big Town gave a stirring rendition of Dolly Parton’s classic hit “Jolene” at the Grand Ole Opry. In a spine-chilling cover that left the audience in awe, the group performed the song without any musical accompaniment, relying solely on their powerful harmonies to captivate the crowd.
A Performance to Remember
As they began the performance, the group invited the audience to join them in singing along to the ballad, which tells the story of a woman struggling with jealousy and insecurity as she tries to hold onto her man despite the attention of the beautiful Jolene. Little Big Town’s performance of the song showcased their impressive vocal abilities, with each member taking turns to sing the lead and harmonize with the others.
Parton originally released “Jolene” in 1973, and the song quickly became one of her biggest hits. It reached No.1 on the country charts in the US and Canada and made it onto the charts in other countries as well, including Sweden and Ireland.
Little Big Town’s cover of “Jolene” is a fitting tribute to one of country music’s greatest legends, and the group’s harmonies add a unique twist to the iconic song. Watch their powerful rendition in the video below and let us know what you think in the comments.
