We love seeing some Dolly Parton covers on this week’s New Music Friday.
While I have been feining for new Sierra Ferrell music, I have also loved seeing Ferrell working on many collaborations and cover projects. Today Ferrell released a cover of Dolly Parton’s iconic song “Coat Of Many Colors,” which was recorded with Amazon Music for her Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction.
Parton released the song in 1971, and it was later adapted into a movie in 2015 that details her upbringing. Dolly Parton details in the song’s lyrics growing up in relative poverty in the Tennessee mountains.
Her coat of many colors was a patchwork coat made of scraps, but she would wear it proudly as she loved that her mother made it for her.
The song is wildly popular among Parton fans, and Sierra Ferrell breathes new life into the classic tune.
