VIDEO: Dolly Parton performs ‘Jolene’ like never before

DOLLY Parton continues to astound the world with her ability to throw down a country music melody like no other, and at 70-years-young she's managing to adopt modern techniques to some of her old classics.

The iconic country singer has teamed up with a cappella group Pentatonix to bring her classic hit "Jolene" to the modern stage.

In a video posted by the Texas quintet, the group are seen performing the track with Dolly.

With only vocal cords as instruments, the band give the country classic a new twist, complete with perfect harmonies and a little beatboxing (It's now available on iTunes).

The day the video was released, Parton tweeted about the experience of singing with Pentatonix, calling it "pure magic."

Of course, the band responded with sheer joy and excitement:

Parton has performed "Jolene" with other artists in the past, including Katy Perry (at the 2016 ACM Awards), and her own goddaughter Miley Cyrus.

The song is like a beautiful gift that just keeps on giving.
