Question: Who is the real Jolene?

The Canadian womans name is actually Juline Whelan, and she said her name was often misheard. She was 10 years old and on a trip to Disneyland with her parents when she remembered meeting Dolly Parton at a concert.

Was there a real Jolene?

Is Jolene based on a true story? Yes, “Jolene” is based on real events from Dollys own life. The song was mainly inspired by a red-haired bank teller who flirted with her husband, Carl Thomas Dean, all the way back at the beginning of their marriage.

Why Dolly Parton covers her arms?

While Dolly hasnt said much about why she explicitly wears long sleeves, shes hinted in the past that it has to do with her tattoos on her arms. So basically, Dolly got tattoos to cover up scars and now she wears long sleeves all the time to cover up both the scars and tattoos.
