Dolly Parton Would Be Down for a ‘Jolene’ Collab With BTS
Could a Dolly Parton/BTS collaboration be on the way? She's game if they are.
BTS has been one of the forefront acts to bring Korean music to America and other international countries. The group recently attended the 2019 Grammy Awards and were especially into the tribute to the country legend — the Korean pop supergroup were caught on camera in the crowd, singing along to Parton's classic "Jolene" with enthusiasm.
Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Little Big Town and Maren Morris honored the country icon during a ten-minute medley of her classic songs.
Parton caught wind that BTS were feeling her vibe, later tweeting: "Maybe my next #Jolene collab will be with BTS? What do y'all think?"

BTS' music blends both the English and Korean languages with catchy pop hooks. The seven-piece group has gained a massive international following, and were nominated for Best Recording Package for their album Love Yourself: Tear at the Grammys. This marked not only the first K-pop nomination ever, but the first K-pop presenters at the award show, as well.
One of the members, Jungkook, was rumored to have been wiping away tears at being in Parton's presence. Who can blame him?
