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.

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

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.

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...
everyone's lord and savior, dolly parton https://t.co/DqkIWRs9bA— nela 🥀 (@nela 🥀)1605899041.0
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...
