RuPaul's Drag Race Queens Don Dolly Parton Attire for 'Jolene' Video

RuPaul's Drag Race Queens

Several stars of RuPaul's Drag Race joined together to pay homage to the legendary Parton in conjunction with the Netflix movie Dumplin'

For the lead-in to live performances of Dolly Parton's mega-hit "Jolene," she has, for years, shouted out to the drag queens who show up at her shows dressed like her. She even often replaces the name "Jolene" with "drag queen" in the chorus when she performs it.

For the Netflix movie Dumplin' -- about a plus-sized teen girl obsessed with Dolly Parton who gets help entering a beauty pageant from a cadre of drag queens -- Parton and out songwriter Linda Perry produced a gorgeous new soundtrack. Now, some of the queens from RuPaul's Drag Race have banded together for an epic version of "Jolene" that pays homage to the national treasure that is Parton.
