The two perform the song as a duet in which Cyrus plays the role of the song’s antagonist, Jolene, whom Parton is begging to stay away from her husband. The singers are on the top of their game with Cyrus bringing a fun pop music twist to the beloved country classic.
“Give it up for my little fairy princess!” says Parton as Cyrus exits the stage. “I’m her fairy godmother!”
While Parton and her husband, Dean, have no biological children of their own, Dolly played an important role in the upbringing of Cyrus as her godmother. Parton even guest starred multiple times on Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana playing the role her aunt and sister to father Billy Ray Cyrus.
