"9 to 5" was released in 1980 and was originally written for Dolly's film debut in the comedy, also titled 9 to 5. Both the song and movie boldly aimed to get women better treatment in the workplace, as well as provide a few good laughs for those who know the inequality experience all too well!
Based on the success of the song, we think their voices were heard! "9 to 5" became the #1 hit song on both the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Billboard Top 100 charts. The tune also gained Dolly the award for Best Country Song and Best Country Vocal Performance, Female.
Not only did "9 to 5" top the charts, but it quickly became a workplace anthem! The song spoke to women who felt oppressed by male coworkers, giving them a little inspiration to overcome their challenges and shed light on their skills and determination! Women all across America could relate to Dolly's powerful words.
Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Nettles absolutely blew the crowd away with their strong and passionate rendition of this classic song. To wrap up the performance Carrie said, "Not bad for no rehearsal." Carrie, we'd have to agree!
