Someone Put A Black Sabbath-Style Spin On Dolly Parton’s “Jolene,” And It Kinda Works

Okay… this kinda goes hard.

Of course, Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” has been covered many, many times over the years by artists both within the country genre, as well as pop artists like Miley Cyrus, who has did a fabulous rendition of the country classic quite a few years ago.

“Jolene” was written solely by Dolly and released as the title track to her album of the same name in 1973, when it eventually peaked at #60 on the Hot 100 chart. It of course became a #1 hit on the U.S. Country Songs chart, and has remained a country standard ever since.

Obviously, though, the most recent, popular reimagining of the tune came on Beyoncé’s Cowboy Carter record, which she completely rewrote for the project.

And today, I happened to come across this fascinating, heavy metal take on “Jolene,” which was redone by Otu of Moonic Productions with a Black Sabbath-style production that, honestly, kinda works.

Moreover, I think Dolly herself would even appreciate it, considering the released her own rock and roll album last, Rockstar, and is a fan of that kind of music too.

It’s clearly a far cry from Dolly’s original, and doesn’t sound country in the slightest, but I would add this to a work out playlist or something of that nature in a heartbeat.
