The stars have aligned, and the result is pure magic in “Forever Country” featuring Dolly Parton and 29 of Country Music’s legendary and current acts.

Grammy-winning director, Joseph Kahn has created a masterpiece in the new “Forever Country” music video. It’s Country music’s history, legacy, tradition, evolution and future on a spectacular moving canvas.

While her self-described simple lyrics from “I Will Always Love You” are woven throughout “Forever Country,” Dolly Parton’s presence in the video is nothing short of enchanting.


Dolly, Willie Nelson and 28 artists appear in what can only be described as the most incredible celebration of the genre since its inception. From breathtaking scenes within the Blue Ridge Mountains to a street view of the historic Ryman Auditorium the images tug on the heartstrings of generations of country fans. Watch closely for a glimpse of legends like Randy Travis, Charley Pride and Alabama. Current stars are also in the mix including Vince Gill, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood.

CMA 50th “Forever Country” is a mashup of “Take Me Home, Country Roads” by the late John Denver, “On the Road Again” by Willie Nelson and Dolly’s “I Will Always Love You.”

Viewers of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars” received a sneak peek of the “Forever Country” video during the Tuesday night episode on Sept. 20. The world premiere was held online at ForeverCountry50.com.

“Forever Country” was introduced to radio listeners on Friday, Sept. 16. Proceeds from the sale of this once-in-a-lifetime collaboration benefit the CMA Foundation, which donates millions to support music education in schools.

The 50th Annual CMA Awards will air live from Nashville, TN on Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2016.

The Grammy Award-winning, a capella group, Pentatonix record Dolly’s 1973 hit, “Jolene.”

Now on their 2016 World Tour, Pentatonix will release a new single, “Jolene,” featuring Dolly Parton. The group first emerged in 2011 and have today sold over 2.8 million albums in the U.S. alone. Their latest release, “Pentatonix” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and the group appeared in the 2015 feature film “Pitch Perfect 2.”

Dolly first introduced the world to “Jolene” in late 1973. The title track from her 13th studio album dropped as a single a few months before the album was released in February of the following year. It has since become Dolly’s most covered song with versions by The White Stripes, Olivia Newton-John, Miley Cyrus, Rhonda Vincent and many more.

A very special thanks to our friends at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store for making this happen!

Dolly Parton and high heels have been synonymous since her early days in Nashville. Several pairs of her tiny pumps are on display in the Chasing Rainbows Museum inside Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, TN.

to my knees in mud.”
