Living legend Dolly Parton performed alongside living Jeremy Scott fever dream Katy “Jolene” Perry at last night’s ACM awards, and the crowd loved every second of it. The duo blessed us with a medley of “Coat of Many Colors,” “Jolene,” and “9 to 5"—a satisfying trifecta of Parton classics—and added fuel to my suspicions that Perry’s next move will be a country album. (Perhaps even a Cheek to Cheek-like duets album with Dolly?)
