Jolene is about a girl named Jolene and she wanted to take Dolly's man.
Check out her adorable performance.
Violet is such a fan of Dolly Parton that she knew that she was a big part in finding a vaccine for COVID-19. She said she loves Dolly because she has a beautiful voice and that she helps kids in need by giving them books to read.
