In a career filled with every type of accolade imaginable, Dolly Parton’s classic 1973 song “Jolene,” has just been named the number one country song of all time by Rolling Stone. The Queen of Country’s anthem about a desperate woman warning another suitor to stay away from her man topped the list of 200 beloved country tunes. Rolling Stone’s impressive list features music legends like Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Johnny Cash, George Strait, Loretta Lynn, Elvis Presley, Hank Williams, Garth Brooks, Waylon Jennings and more. Even Taylor Swift made the list twice, with “Mean” coming in at No. 20, and “Tim McGraw” at No. 126. The rest of the Top 5 is rounded out by Johnny Cash’s “I Walk the Line” at No. 2, Patsy Cline’s “Crazy” at No. 3, Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” at No. 4, and George Jones’ “He Stopped Loving Her Today” at No. 5.
