Book Vs Movie: Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings “Jolene”

Book Vs Movie Podcast

Book Vs Movie: “Jolene” (2019)

Dolly Parton’s 1973 Hit Song & the 2019 Adaptation from Netflix “Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings”


The Margos have opened up our adaptations to include plays, novellas, magazine articles, and (for this particular episode) songs. Specifically Jolene by the amazing Dolly Parton

Dolly’s life has been an amazing journey from poverty in the mountains of Tennessee to her career as one of the most prolific singer/songwriters of the last 50+ years. Her music goes across several genres from country to rock to pop to gospel and she has written over 3,000 songs. 

Jolene holds a special distinction as one of her most-covered tunes and the story is based on a true story about the early years of her marriage to Carl Thomas Dean

Netflix took the concept and created the show Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings which had one episode devoted to the interpretation of Jolene with Julienne Hough playing the title character. 

So between the song & movie–which did we like better? (Is it even going to be close?)

In this ep the Margos discuss:

Clips used:

  • Jolene  trailer 
  • Dish Nation interview with Dolly
  • Jolene introduces Babe to Emily
  • Music by Pentatonix
