We\u2019re little, but we\u2019re loud, and we do big things!\u201d The Newport Folk Festival was full of anecdotes and stunning renditions Dolly Parton \/ CHRIS WILLMAN \/ VARIETY Accompanying Parton was the incredible Linda Perry, who introduced Parton as an "incomparable unicorn legend." Perry helps Parton lead into her 1991 ballad, \u201cEagle When She Flies.\u201d Following the tune, the band begins to play \u201cJust Because I\u2019m a Woman\u201d after an anecdote from Parton.

Following that, Parton tells a story about the real woman behind her hit song "Jolene," which she sang joined by the Highwomen. There were multiple reasons behind the hit, but Parton does confirm that there was a redheaded bank teller who would often flirt with her husband, Carl. \u201cI told him, \u2018I know you work in asphalt ,\u201d said Parton. \u201cBut it\u2019ll be\u00a0your\u00a0ass and\u00a0your fault\u2019 if I leave!\u201d Parton tells the audience in a story.
