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

Dolly Parton has remade her hit song “9 to 5” as a duet, this time with Kelly Clarkson.

The song comes over 40 years after the original and was recorded as part of the upcoming documentary, “Still Working 9 to 5”. The film explores the cultural impact of the 1980 comedy “9 to 5,” which Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin starred in.

“No one sings like Kelly Clarkson. She brings any song to life,” Parton said in a statement. “I love her vocals on ‘9 to 5’, and I’m so proud to have been able to sing with her. I’m equally proud of Shane McAnally’s wonderful arrangement and production.”

Clarkson shared the admiration.

“I’m so honored that Dolly asked me to reinvent this iconic song, ‘9 to 5’, with her!” the singer and talk show host said in a statement.

“She’s so talented, an inspiration to all women, and one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet!” Clarkson added. “I hope you like what we did, but even if you don’t, remember I have to sing a duet with the magical Dolly Parton, and now I have bragging rights. until the end of time !”

In March, Clarkson paid tribute to Parton at the 57th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards by performing Parton’s signature hit song, “I Will Always Love You,” which was covered in iconic style by Whitney Houston.
