Talented Alexandra Kay Sings A Cover Of Dolly Parton's Jolene

7 years ago

When it comes to iconic songs, Dolly Parton’s song ‘Jolene’ is probably one of the most iconic tunes to date. According to Parton herself, the song, released back in 1973 on an album with the same name, was inspired by a beautiful clerk that used to work at the bank where her then-husband Carl Dean used to go and she would often flirt with him. The name, however, was from a little girl who also happened to have “auburn hair, ivory skin and eyes of emerald green" and was named Jolene.

Many other artists have attempted their own take of the famous song, but one girl from Waterloo, Illinois seems to have hit the jackpot. People who have heard her acoustic cover of ‘Jolene’ say that hers is the best one so far!

26-year old Alexandra Kay is not an overnight sensation. The social media darling, who actually comes from a family of athletes, already has 10 tracks of her own, five of which are country classics. For her performance of the iconic ‘Jolene’, uploaded on her Facebook page in 2016, Alexandra’s stunning vocals have captivated viewers from all around the globe and they are praising the girl’s talent ever since!

Everyone says that Alexandra’s voice is probably the only one who can do the song real justice and we couldn’t agree more! Check her out for yourself!
