Dolly Parton Tells DJ DESTRUCTO to Remix “Jolene” Because He Can

Dolly Parton Tells DJ DESTRUCTO to Remix “Jolene” Because He Can

Dolly Parton first released her iconic hit “Jolene” in October of 1973. It went to number-one in February of 1974, and since then…not only has it become an international hit…it’s also one of the most covered songs in music history.

The latest artist to put their own spin on the track is DJ DESTRUCTO (aka Gary Richards). He says “’Jolene’ has been part of my musical DNA since day one.  It is a true classic not only for country music but American music. I’ve always felt its lyrics and melody could be the bones to build a real dance floor banger around. Something to sing along to while getting your dance on.”

When she heard it, Dolly exclaimed “My little song ‘Jolene’ has been done so many different ways and I love them all, but I think this one is my favorite! It makes me want to dance! How about you!?”

When he heard Dolly’s approval, DESTRUCTO shared, “I’m beyond thrilled being given the opportunity to remix one of the greatest songs of all time and that Dolly loves it.  She is a national treasure and to be able to have the world hear my version of it with her behind it is a blessing.”

Check out the remix for yourself…
