Dolly Parton and Pentatonix are going viral on the internet because of their rendition of Parton’s 1974 song, “Jolene.”
The a cappella group, consisting of Avi Kaplan, Scott Hoying, Kirstin Maldonado, Kevin Olusola and Mitch Grassi, takes the hit song to a mesmerizing level by providing ominous vocals and some beat-boxing.
According to Rolling Stone, the song was recorded in Nashville as part of Parton’s deluxe edition for her recent LP, “Pure & Simple.”
Pentatonix formed in 2011 and shot to fame after winning the third season of “The Sing-Off” on NBC. The group won the Grammy Award for Best Arrangement twice — the only a cappella group to have won the award.
“Jolene” was released in 1974 as part of Parton’s album of the same name, produced by Bob Ferguson. The song — which Parton wrote — ranked on the Rolling Stone “500 Greatest Songs of All Time” list in 2004.
