In the summer of 2012, before chopping off her hair and donning studded combat boots, a bohemian Miley Cyrus sang her favorite songs in a backyard for what she aptly titled "The Backyard Sessions."

One of these songs was "Jolene" -- the Dolly Parton classic that's been covered by everyone from The White Stripes to Fiona Apple. Check out Miley's version below and let us know what you think. I gotta admit: I kinda like when she goes back to her country roots and leaves those stripper poles and belly shirts behind. Do you like Miley Cyrus' version of "Jolene"?

    I'm not particularly a fan of hers one way or the other, but it's a decent cover of a song I've always liked..and I also like the stripped down backing. There's some decent playing going on.

    I don't like Miley's "grown Up Act" at all. she's trying to become another Hollywood slut and doing a pretty good job if it..

    I also like the duet she did with Dolly in 2010. Miley has a beautiful voice.
    Now if only she would make her own music sound like this instead of the electro and dubstep song she did recently.

    Her Voice just makes me wanna hurl both Lunch and dinner, I don't know who told her she can sing, But she lack emotion in her voice, Songs like Jolene when Dollie sang it , you could feel the emotion, so far I have yet hear anything from Mily that was good, it's like she doing it just to be famous or something, her Dad was ok, but he wasn't a great singer either.

    I always like the originals. I feel if these folks have talent they can write their own songs and not use someone else's music.

    Can do it like Dolly.

    In fact NO song that Dolly has done has ever been "successfully" covered by anyone.
    Yeah Whitney fan, you heard me...

    Dolly does not have a voice perse, but her vocal chords are a musical instrument that is of singular existance.
    So if it's Dolly's song.....it's ALWAYS Dolly's song.
    If I could sing and someone wanted ME to cover one of hers (Bizzaro world) I would tell them thanks, but no friggin way.
    All anyone does when covering a song of hers is to put on display how untrained and unskilled a vocalist they are compared to her.

    I love you, but I disagree. I think Jack White's rendition is superior, because it is so much more emotional, even than Dolly's.

    Nobody said we had to agree on everything...
    And music is a pretty benign topic to have divergent opinions.

    You Karma is funny at times, Dolly who still owns writer and publisher rates from sales to the song, The day whitney this was the Top most Downloaded song that week, and the after was no1 On Billboard, Dolly pocket around 70,000 that week. Sad to say Whiney was broke when she died, she was only a singer that sang what Clive Davis gave her to sing. if you're a singer/songwriter, then you profit a lot more, Lord look at Sir Paul McCartney, The Man worth over a Billion. and look how many of his songs that get covered.

    I like it. Though Jack White's rendition is still probably one of my favorites, the emotion he sings is ahmazing.

    She's perfectly capable of singing, she just tends to write bad songs.

    When she's given a good song (even if I don't like the genre), then the situation changes.

    Jolene is a whore. -_- And she needs to leave him cause he is beginning to be hooked. I know it is a song, but I had to say that. Great song though!
