Watch: Miley Does Jolene

We love her Backyard Session of the Dolly classic

Miley Cyrus has been spotted all over Philly these days – making at least a few stops at Woody’s, we hear – but before the pop star chopped off her long locks in favor of a much more butch look, she recorded this cover of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” for her Backyard Sessions album. And we love it.

Interesting fact: Dolly is Miley’s godmother (talk about country music royalty). Another interesting fact: Miley’s a huge gay rights supporter. Don’t believe us? Just follow her on Twitter where she regularly takes homophobes to task. You go, girl.
