my Lord I am so excited to have won the Grammy with Pentatonix on my
old song Jolene,” says Dolly Parton. “I am so happy and am so very proud
of Pentatonix. The song is one of my favorites. Thanks to the Grammys,
but most importantly thanks to all the fans. I love you all.”

The award-winning collaboration between Pentatonix and Parton
happened through a partnership with Cracker Barrel Old Country Store,
which has enjoyed success with both acts in the past with exclusive
editions of albums from each. In Parton’s case, the partnership
stretches back to her 2009 Backwoods Barbie Collector’s Edition project, which was followed by the release of An Evening With…Dolly
and became the first Gold album-ever certified by the RIAA for Cracker
Barrel Music. That relationship has continued with her latest Dolly
Records / RCA Records release Pure & Simple. Released in
the summer of 2016, the album – which netted Dolly her first
chart-topping album since 1991 – was released in a deluxe Cracker
Barrel-exclusive edition that featured live performances of her classic
hits “9 To 5” and “Jolene” from the Glastonbury Festival, along with a
48-page ZinePak magazine filled with photos and interviews highlighting
memorable stories from Parton. The collaboration is not part of any of
the packages, however, is available for digital download here:

“Cracker Barrel is thrilled to have brought these two extraordinary
talents together, Dolly Parton and Pentatonix, as part of our Spotlight
Music Program for the exclusive collaboration of “Jolene.” We share in
the celebration of their GRAMMY Award win as they are both a special
part of the Cracker Barrel family,” said Don Hoffman, VP of Marketing at
Cracker Barrel.

CTK Management CEO Danny Nozell said, “The collaborative video
produced by Cracker Barrel between Pentatonix and Dolly has been viewed
over 22 million times and has now won a Grammy. Dolly proves, once
again, that she is making music that the fans will respond to.”

Parton’s 2016’s Pure & Simple North American Tour was the highest grossing tour of her career, performing over 60 shows.
