She is also a close member of the NBCUNIVERSAL family, an OLYMPIC super-fan, and has a new version of two of the greatest sports anthems of all time. So, she was the perfect choice to get AMERICA excited about Team USA and next summer’s PARIS OLYMPICS.”PARTON added, “I love the OLYMPICS! I do my best to plan my schedule to watch as much of it as I possibly can. I tape it just in case I miss the live action on a certain day and watch it back as soon as possible. I laugh, I cry, I scream, there are no losers in the OLYMPICS as they have all spent a lifetime preparing, but I celebrate with the ones that go away with the gold, silver and bronze medals.”The video features appearances from Olympians SIMONE BILES, SUNI LEE, SYDNEY McLAUGHLIN-LEVRONE, NOAH LYLES, KATIE LEDECKY, the women’s soccer team, and men’s and women’s basketball teams.
