Dolly Parton and Kelly Clarkson have reworked her popular song “9 to 5” as a duet.
The song was recorded for the upcoming documentary “Still Working 9 to 5,” more than 40 years after the original. The movie examines “9 to 5,” a 1980 comedy starring Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin, and its cultural effects.
“Kelly Clarkson has a unique voice. She brings any song to life “In a statement, Parton stated. “I adore her voice on “9 to 5,” and I’m so happy we got to collaborate on that song. I’m equally pleased with Shane McAnally’s superb production and arrangement.”
Clarkson shared the admiration.
The singer and talk-show host said in a statement, “I am so honoured that Dolly asked me to reimagine this iconic song, ‘9 to 5,’ with her.
She is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet, so talented, and an inspiration to all women, said Clarkson. Even if you don’t like what we did, keep in mind that I got to sing a duet with the legendary Dolly Parton and now have bragging rights for all of eternity!
At the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards in March, Clarkson paid tribute to Parton by singing her iconic hit song “I Will Always Love You,” which Whitney Houston famously covered.
