America's sweetheart and coronavirus vaccine savior, Dolly Parton, has revealed some of her own dreams for the future, and we're all totally on board with the idea...

Dolly Parton has revealed her vision for the future of "Jolene"...

And it may or may not involve a cover from one of the world's greatest female popstars, Beyonce.

And we're totally here for it.

Or do you think that, rather than just a cover, we'll be lucky enough to get an iconic collaboration between the pair? Read on to find out exactly what she said...

Now, we all know that Dolly Parton is America's national treasure.

Born in Locust Ridge, Dolly was the fourth child of a whopping twelve, and comes from humble beginnings, having described her family in the past as being "dirt poor."

The country singer made a career from her "rags-to-rhinestones" story.

She has credited many of her family members for helping mold her musicality, but particularly her uncle, Bill Owens, for getting her foot in the door of the industry.

Her talent didn't go unnoticed.

After landing a coveted spot on The Porter Wagoner Show, she saw her name in lights very quickly.

And with songs like "Jolene" and "Love Is Like A Butterfly," she became an icon in the world of country singers.

In 1975 and '76, the Country Music Association awarded her with Female Country Singer of the Year and, during this time, she was also working on moving into the pop market in order to further her career.

And the song “Here You Come Again" really helped her do that.

It won a Grammy Award and in the following years, she tucked a couple more of the prestigious accolades under her belt.

But it was probably one of her most famous songs, "9 to 5", that truly catapulted her to global stardom.

Her iconic country glam style was suddenly recognized all over the world and her distinct million-dollar smile granted her millions of fans.

And, as well as killing it as a musician, she has also dabbled in the world of film.

In the '80s, Dolly made appearances in films such as Nine to Five, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, and Steel Magnolias.

Long story short, Dolly is an icon.

Over the years, the singer has built her image around being America's sweetheart, and even now, at the age of seventy-four, she still has a strong and loyal fan base.

And this year, she won over the hearts of the nation again with her generosity during the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier this year, it was revealed that Dolly had donated $1 million to coronavirus research at Vanderbilt University.

And, just a few weeks ago...

Moderna's coronavirus vaccine, which has become the second vaccine with a stunningly high success rate, was credited solely to her donation.

It's needless to say, Dolly has become our savior during these dark times...

And while fans hope and pray they get to meet her one day, she's hoping and praying for something else...

And it involves another huge female popstar.

The country singer recently revealed that there's a person in particular that she wants to cover her 1974 hit, "Jolene."

And it's none other than our Queen B, Beyonce.

Speaking to The Big Issue, the country singer revealed that while she enjoyed all the thousands of covers that have cropped up over the years, including the renowned cover by The White Stripes, she hopes Beyonce will jump on the trend too.

But fans have mixed views on the topic...

I don't know about you guys, but we're loving the idea.

“‘Jolene’ has been recorded more than any other song that I have ever written," Dolly told the outlet. "It has been recorded worldwide over 400 times in lots of different languages by lots of different bands."

She continued:

“The White Stripes did a wonderful job of it, and many other people. But nobody’s ever had a really big hit record on it."

“I’ve always hoped somebody might do someday, someone like Beyonce."

She then elaborated on the type of success she aims for with the track, referring to Whitney Houston's take on "I Will Always Love You."

She described it as one of her proudest moments.

“I had a number one with ‘I Will Always Love You’ twice, once in the Seventies then I did it in the movie ‘The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas’ and had another number one in the eighties," she said. “And then Whitney did it and it was considered one of the greatest love songs of all time.

“Still to this day I take a lot of pride in that," she added.

The news comes after Dolly also revealed that she "cried all night long" after rejecting Elvis Presley's attempt to record "I Will Always Love You", but she felt as though it wasn't right until Houston came along.

Let's hope we live to see the day Beyonce covers Dolly Parton's "Jolene."

It will truly be an iconic moment. If you're looking for more news on the country singer, then keep scrolling to find out what her real hair looks like... It's mindblowing.
