Dolly Parton and Kelly Clarkson Rendition of ‘9 to 5’ for New Documentary ‘Still Working 9 to 5’
Kelly Clarkson joins Dolly Parton on a remake of '9 to 5'
40 years ago women was struggling for rights especially in the workforce and so three big star actresses (Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin) came together to create a movie, ‘9 to 5‘ to show the battle women had to fight for at the time. During this time it was very risky to have a film have not only one but three female leads. This seem to pay off though as the film grossed $103.3 million.
Fast forward to 2022 and it is still an arising problem and so they decided to bring back a sequel ‘Still Working 9 to 5‘, which is schedule to premiere in select theaters Sept. 16 2022. The sequel is also scheduled to show during the Nashville Film Festival 2022, Sept. 29-Oct. 2.
Along with the sequel coming out, the production team (Shane McAnally, Sasha Alex Sloan, King Henry, Steve Summers) thought it was fitting to also have a remix to ‘9 to 5’. Kelly Clarkson joins Parton in the whole new arrangement of the song that slows down the original version to give it more of a moody feel.
