Watch Dolly Parton Sing “Jolene” at Grand Ole Opry 50th Anniversary Show

The Grand Ole Opry celebrated Dolly Parton’s 50th anniversary as an Opry member on Oct. 12 with two sold-out shows honoring the country icon. NBC turned the two-show celebration into a two-hour TV special, Dolly Parton: 50 Years at the Grand Ole Opry, which debuted on Nov. 26.

The show featured Opry performances from Dolly, Dierks Bentley, Emmylou Harris, Chris Janson, Toby Keith, Lady Antebellum, Margo Price, Hank Williams Jr. and more.

Dolly took the stage to perform a cache of her fan-favorite hits, including “Joshua,” “My Tennessee Mountain Home,” “Coat of Many Colors,” “Here You Come Again,” “9 to 5,” “I Will Always Love You” and “Jolene,” which you can watch below.

“I write a lot of stuff, a lot of it is based on truth, some of it ain’t, and some of it I kinda hide the truth mixed in with other stuff,” said Dolly. “Like this story about this old red-headed gal by the name of Jolene, well, it’s based on a thread of truth, but it was so frayed by the time I got finished with it, it didn’t even matter.”
