Dolly Parton Joins Brandi Carlile and the Highwomen at Newport Folk Fest: Watch
This weekend’s Newport Folk Festival featured a performance that was mysteriously billed as “♀♀♀♀: The Collaboration.” The set turned out to be an all-female lineup of singers and special guests, curated by Brandi Carlile. It included her new supergroup (The Highwomen) as well as Sheryl Crow, Lucy Dacus, Maggie Rogers, and one very special guest: Dolly Parton.
Parton joined the Highwomen for “Jolene,” “Just Because I’m a Woman,” and “Eagle When She Flies.” She also duetted with Carlile on “I Will Always Love You” and was joined by the other members of the Collaboration for “9 to 5.” Watch clips from the performance below.
