Dolly Parton joined her goddaughter Miley Cyrus on The Voice on Tuesday night (Nov. 29) for a duet on her signature song “Jolene” with the help of Pentatonix. The performance came as flames from a raging wildfire continued to threaten Parton’s Dollywood theme park in Tennessee. While the 1973 hit is one of Parton’s most beloved tunes, Cyrus has also made it one of her live staples and Tuesday marked the second time this season she’s performed the tune on The Voice.
Wearing an all-black ensemble, Parton took center stage on the show, trading lines with a modestly dressed Cyrus as vocal group Pentatonix beatboxed and harmonized behind and between them. Check out the performance.
The devastating wildfires in Tennessee have killed at least three people so far, burning hundreds of homes and businesses and sending more than 14,000 packing from the resort towns of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, according to USA Today. Officials at Dollywood tweeted on Tuesday night that they’ve assessed the damage to the 150-acre theme park and plan to re-open on Friday after staying closed until then to focus on relief efforts in the community.
