Dolly Parton Won Glastonbury With This “Yakety Sax” Cover

By Tom Breihan / July 1, 2014

To be clear: Dolly Parton won Glastonbury simply by showing up. The 68-year-old country music legend is not the type to show up at every festival every summer, but she blessed the UK’s biggest one with her presence this past weekend. She also figured out a way to pay tribute to her host country in the most adorable way imaginable, while going viral in the process. During her performance, Parton pulled out a saxophone and covered “Yakety Sax,” the theme for the old Benny Hill Show. It was awesome. Also, it’s not in the video below, but I have it on good authority that Parton claimed to be “feelin’ a little saxy” before she pulled the instrument out. Watch the performance below.

Billboard reports that, when the BBC broadcast Glastonbury, Parton’s segment got the highest ratings.
