Two-Year-Old Impresses Dolly Parton Herself With This Jolene Rendition

'Please don't take my mannnn.'

Most of us have belted out Dolly Parton's 'Jolene' before, but it's safe to say none of us impressed Parton herself with our rendition. This two-year-old has done exactly that.

Sophia Kingsley was captured in a private moment by her mother Brooke Kingsley, belting out the lyrics to the classic tune. It was then posted on Facebook.

Sophia sings "Jolene, Jolene, Joleeeeneee...please don't take my man" with absolute conviction as her mother sneaks up behind her. It's adorable.

Naturally people have loved the video. It's been viewed more than 6.8 million times and shared more than 116,000 times. The clip even reached the queen of country herself.

"It warms my heart to see how music reaches the littlest fans! Maybe we'll see this little one on the opry stage!" Parton said on Twitter.

Kingsley's mother told PEOPLE that her and her husband were surprised when they heard their daughter singing the song, a whole two months after she heard it.

She also expressed her excitement over the clip reaching Parton. "We told Sophia and she was so excited, she goes, 'Princess Dolly likes me!'" she said.

With a shout-out from Parton at age two, the future is certainly looking bright for Sophia. Here's the full video adorable video in all its glory.
