Southern Raised Stunning Rendition Of ‘Jolene’

Bluegrass and country music group Southern Raised turned in a marvelous cover of a classic tune by the legendary Dolly Parton.

Nearly every band in existence has performed a cover or two. It’s a timeless tradition and practice that every musician has done at one point or another during their career. Even some of the most well-known and beloved artists play the songs of their fellow musicians. 

In a clip posted on YouTube, the incredibly talented group Southern Raised plays Dolly Parton’s beloved song “Jolene.” It’s a cover that you must hear to believe. It’s a simply fantastic rendition, especially the vocal performances. 

“Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Oh, I’m begging of you, please don’t take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don’t take him even though you can”

The young woman’s voice, the lyrics and the expertly played instruments combine to make a lovely and dazzling cover. The video is more than worth several plays and listens. 

This is a cover that those who love and adore the original from Dolly will appreciate. The musicians in the clip do the song justice, bringing much emotion and talent to their upbeat and catchy performance. 

The legendary Dolly would also likely give her enthusiastic approval to Southern Raised’s cover of her hit from the 1970s. 

Others who commented on the YouTube link expressed their love and utter delight at Southern Raised’s cover of “Jolene.”
