An Evening with Dolly PartonWednesday, August 3rd, 2011« view all past events
One of the most honored female country singers of all time, Dolly Parton returns this summer with a much-anticipated album of all-new studio material–BETTER DAY (Dolly Records) — and a world tour bringing her throughout America and then onto the U.K, Europe and Australia. The excitement gets underway when the iconic singer, songwriter, musician, actress and philanthropist unveils the album’s soaring first single “Together You & I” with a live performance Thursday, May 26 on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” as the song simultaneously arrives at radio. The song?s video will debut shortly thereafter.
“I wanted to do an album that would be very uplifting and positive, as well as inspirational,” says the seven-time Grammy winner who was hailed as “one of our national treasures” by Newsweek in 2008. “Times are hard all over. I think people need to feel better and I thought BETTER DAY was a perfect title because it says hope.”
Dolly Parton is the most honored female country performer of all time. Achieving 25 RIAA certified gold, platinum and multi-platinum awards, she has had 25 songs reach number 1 on the Billboard Country charts, a record for a female artist. She has 41 career top 10 country albums, a record for any artist, and she has 110 career charted singles over the past 40 years.
