The song “Jolene” is one of the most famous songs by the iconic singer Parton. According to Song Facts, the title of the song was inspired by an encounter with a 10-year-old fan, whose name was Jolene.
The song was written and recorded at the time when Parton was separating from her singing partner and manager, Porter Wagoner.
It marked the beginning of her solo career as it was one of the five consecutive songs to hit number one on the country hits.
