Dolly Parton rocked covers of two classic Queen power anthems in a new music video to promote coverage of the upcoming 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.
The 77-year-old country icon’s video features “We Are The Champions/We Will Rock You,” which will be included on Parton’s forthcoming album, “Rockstar.”
As a “huge fan of the Olympics and Team USA,” Parton was inspired to create an Olympic-themed video for the song that “celebrates the athletes and gets people excited about next year’s Games in Paris,” a press release said.
“I love the Olympics! I do my best to plan my schedule to watch as much of it as I possibly can,” the “Jolene” hitmaker said.
