Dolly Parton and Kelly Clarkson duet on ‘9 to 5’


Dolly Parton has recorded a new version of “9 to 5” featuring Kelly Clarkson as a duet.

Song was recorded for the upcoming documentary “Still Working 9 to 5” and follows the original for more than 40 years. The 1980 comedy “9 to 5” starred by Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin is the subject of this film, which examines the film’s cultural impact.

Kelly Clarkson has a voice like no other. According to a statement from Parton, “she makes any song come alive.” I’m so happy I got to sing with her on ‘9 to 5’ because I adore her voice. Shane McAnally did a fantastic job with the arrangement and production, and that’s something else I’m extremely pleased with. Admiration was mutual; Clarkson felt the same way.

The singer and TV host released a statement saying, “I am so honored that Dolly asked me to reimagine this iconic song, 9 to 5,” with her.

She is one of the nicest people you will ever meet and an inspiration to women everywhere,” Clarkson gushed. Says the singer, “I hope y’all like what we did, but even if you don’t, remember I got to sing a duet with the magical Dolly Parton, and now have bragging rights til the end of time!”

Clarkson paid tribute to Parton in March at the 57th annual Academy of Country Music Awards by performing Parton’s classic hit, “I Will Always Love You,” which was made famous by Whitney Houston.
