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

Dolly Parton has remade her hit song 9 to 5, this time as a duet with Kelly Clarkson. The melody comes 40 years after the first and was recorded as a feature of the forthcoming narrative Actually Working all day. The film explores the cultural influence of Parton, the 1980 comedy 9 to 5 starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.

No one sings like Kelly Clarkson. Parton said in a statement that she brings any song to life. I love his voice from 9 to 5 and I am very proud that I got a chance to sing with him. I am extremely honored that Dolly asked me to re-imagine this iconic song ‘9 to 5’, the accompanying singer and talk-show host said in a statement. She is such a talent of all women and one of the sweetest people Clarkson has ever met.

I hope you all like what we did, but in case you don’t remember I got to sing a duet with the magical Dolly Parton, and now have bragging rights to the end of time. In March, Clarkson honored Parton at the 57th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards by performing Parton’s iconic hit song I’ll Always Love You, which was classically covered by Whitney Houston.
