“I think she’s fantastic and beautiful, and I love her music,” Parton told Noah. 

“I would just love to hear ‘Jolene’ done in just a big way, kind of like how Whitney Houston did my 'I Will Always Love You,' just someone that can take my little songs and make them like powerhouses. That would be a marvellous day in my life if she ever does do ‘Jolene.’”
