Savannah Guthrie & Hoda Kotb Sing “Jolene” for Dolly Parton on “TODAY”

Earlier this week, Dolly Parton challenged fans to share their best versions of her hit song “Jolene” in honor of her upcoming Netflix anthology <i>Heartstrings</i>. And on Wednesday, <i>TODAY</i> co-hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb accepted that challenge right in front of the country icon herself. With Kotb donning a Parton-esque wig and Guthrie strumming a six-string–yes, she really plays guitar!–the two made a hilariously lame attempt at singing the first few words of the classic before Parton quipped, “You better stick to hosting.” Parton also said about <i>Heartstrings</i>, “I’ve always thought my songs told stories and ever since I was young I’ve thought, ‘I would love to see my stories on the screen as movies.’ And so now, Netflix went for it.” <i>Heartstrings</i> premieres on the streaming platform Friday, November 22.
