Dolly history
Thirty-five years ago Monday, White Limozeen debuts on the country album charts; spawning two No. 1 hits, the CD would peak at No. 3, sell more than 500,000 copies to become the ninth of her gold albums and remain on Billboard's Top 75 country album chart for 100 weeks, the longest of any Dolly album. Fifty-three years ago Wednesday, “The Right Combination” becomes Porter & Dolly's 11th single to debut on the country charts, where it would reach No. 14; the song is also their only one make it onto the pop charts, peaking at No. 108. Fifty-seven years ago Saturday, “Just Because I'm a Woman,” Dolly's first solo single on RCA Records and her third country chart single, debuts on the country charts; it would peak at No. 14 and propel the album of the same title to No. 22. Ten years ago Saturday, Dolly plays to a crowd of nearly 200,000 – likely the largest in her career – as the biggest draw ever for the world's largest music festival, Glastonbury in England, as its 2014 headliner, exceeding the then-record crowd that the Rolling Stones brought the year before; the BBC broadcast of her concert segment also draws the largest television audience in the festival's four-decade history as well, and all of the attention promotes her album Blue Smoke to the No. 2 pop position in the U.K. to be one of the year's biggest-selling albums.

    Today's Dolly Parton news

    First Two 'DNA' Singles Now Available


    New Dolly music hit on Friday. As her management had promised, the first two tracks from this fall's family project Smoky Mountain DNA dropped for downloads and streaming, although the promised full-album track listing and pre-order starts that had been announced as coming the same day were missing. Get “The Orchard” with niece Jada Star here or stream via YouTube here or in the media player above, and get “Tell Me That You Love Me” with cousin Richie Owens here or stream via YouTube here or in the media player below. Also on Friday, the full tribute album Petty Country: A Country Music Celebration of Tom Petty hit stores containing the Dolly performance of his "Southern Accents".

    U.S., U.K., Aussie Chart Updates
    Dolly and Natalie Grant may be nearing the end of their trek up the Adult Contemporary Chart, as the early information Dollymania.net has obtained shows it won't be any higher in the new charts coming out from Billboard on Tuesday, indicating either it will remain steady or start dropping on the tally. As was exclusively reported here last week before the June 22 charts were updated, their duet "Step By Step” climbed five spots to No. 18 in its fourth week on the Adult Contemporary chart to become Dolly's 16th career top 20 AC single. Elsewhere on the charts last week:

  • Dolly's duet with Zach Williams on "Lookin' For You" gains two to No. 30 in its 10th week on the Christian airplay chart.
  • In its 11th week, Beyonce's Cowboy Carter dips one to No. 7 country albums and remains steady at No. 5 Americana/folk albums. The set loses 12 to No. 30 top 200 albums, seven to No. 30 streaming albums, 11 to No. 45 Canadian albums, and 19 to No. 37 current album sales. The set drops back off the top album sales chart, down from No. 20. The project will likely remain around No. 30 in this week's Top 200 albums chart coming out Tuesday, given Hits Daily Double estimates 19,000 credits for the week consisting of about 1,500 sales and 17,500 streaming equivalents in its 12th week.
  • Down Under, Cowboy Carter dips two to No. 13 country albums while Dolly's Diamonds & Rhinestones, The Greatest Hits Collection holds steady at No. 36.
  • Across the pond, Beyonce drops 21 to No. 94 all-genre albums, 11 to No. 91 streaming albums, and three to No. 4 country, remaining steady at No. 3 Americana. It falls off Scottish albums, down from No. 83; downloads, down from No. 84; physical sales, down from No. 63; and album sales, down from No. 61.
  • Elsewhere on the British charts, "Islands In The Stream" with Kenny Rogers falls back off the top 100 downloads chart, down from No. 93. And on the country compilations albums tally, Very Best Of Dolly Parton Vol. 1 regains the top spot by rising one to No. 1, while Glen Campbell Duets: Ghost On The Canvas Sessions featuring a new Dolly duet with the late Campbell, loses three to No. 8, Dolly's Diamonds & Rhinestones, The Greatest Hits Collection rises two to No. 4, The Complete Trio Collection Deluxe slips three to No. 10, and the Original Album Series sees Linda Ronstadt's volume fall back off the top 20, down from No. 14, while Emmylou Harris's first volume re-enters the top 20 at No. 16.

    Dolly Appears On Netflix Cowboys Cheer Series
    Netflix last week premiered its new series America's Sweethearts: Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, and Dolly shows up on Episode 6 for her Thanksgiving halftime performance. Her song “Here I Am” also makes an appearance in an earlier episode.

Billboard magazine appeared to have mistakenly released its position for this week early over the weekend, suggesting the track will rise five spots in the June 22 numbers to be published on Tuesday to hit No. 18 on the Adult Contemporary chart and mark Dolly's 16th top 20 AC single. The track gains three to No. 23 in Billboard's June 15 numbers released last Tuesday. Elsewhere on the charts last week:

  • Her Beyonce collaboration "Tyrant" falls back off the Top R&B Songs chart, down from No. 24 in it eighth week.

The project will likely fall to around No. 30 in this week's Top 200 albums chart, given Hits Daily Double estimates 21,000 credits for the week consisting of about 2,000 sales and 19,000 streaming equivalents in its 11th week.

    Dolly revealed several new projects during her appearance last week at CMA Fest. Watch her full appearance in the media player above.
  • She revealed the details on her bio-musical heading to Broadway in 2026. It will be titled Hello, I'm Dolly featuring music and lyrics by her and book (script) by her and Dolly Parton's Christmas On The Square writer Maria S. Schlatter. The show will be produced by Dolly, her manager Danny Nozell with his CTK Enterprises, and Adam Speers for ATG Production, which previously worked with her on the British version of her 9 To 5: The Musical. In a press release, Dolly said: "Hello, I'm Dolly, and I lived my whole life to see this show on stage. I've written many original songs for the show and included all your favorites in it as well.

    Conservative Rag Trashes Dolly's Love
    Ultra-conservative publication The Federalist last week published a piece condemning Dolly for her acceptance of the LGBTQIA+ community, calling her Christian beliefs that emulate the teachings of Christ to be a "false gospel." The hit piece resulted in thousands of fans pouncing on the magazine and numerous media outlets covering the controversy, such as MSN here. Ironically, the same publication two years ago praised Dollywood as a wholesome alternative to Disney parks, condemning Disney's "woke" ideology that promotes acceptance of LGBTQIA individuals, the same belief system they now trashed Dolly for holding, even though she was just as huge a public queer ally decades ago much less two years ago when they praised her theme park.

    Dolly Opens 'Experience' At Dollywood


    Dolly returned home to Dollywood this weekend to open her new Dolly Parton Experience museum complex and formally announce her upcoming album and docu-series previously reported here and elsewhere. She opened Friday's media event, viewable from the park's social media here or in the media player above, with "My Tennessee Mountain Home" before announcing her upcoming Smoky Mountain DNA album and four-part docu-series on her family's ethnic heritage (featuring contributions from living and deceased family members, the album could contain up to 40 songs, will come out Nov. 15, begin advance orders June 21 with two advance tracks available at that time, and confirmed the tapings this week in Knoxville will be used in the docu-series). She then performed the album's title track before talking about the new museum with park President Eugene Naughton and taking media questions: what do you want girls to know about being successful when walking through the new museum (she thinks it's important for all children, boys and girls, to walk through life feeling important, remaining true to themselves and to their values); who saved her early costumes so that they could be in the museum now (best friend and longtime assistant Judy Ogle); fashion advice (be comfortable in what you're wearing because if you're uncomfortable others around you will be uncomfortable); and isn't it impressive the technology investment the park has made in preserving her legacy (which she turned around and said it's also important for the park to help those who work there and give back to the community, too). She plugged her upcoming cookbook and held a ceremonial ribbon for the museum while Naughton cut it. She toured the park in her Dewitt vehicle both Friday and Saturday and popped in for the new Heidi Parton's Kin & Friends Show. The Songteller building (formerly Chasing Rainbows) traces Dolly's roots from Sevier County to Nashville with exhibits showcasing her favorite mementos from music, movies, and television including a room dedicated solely to her record-selling albums. The showstopper is a massive room with a 360-degree immersive projection-mapped story of how she has become one of the most beloved figures in the world. A section on her philanthropy includes a live counter celebrating how many books her Imagination Library early childhood literacy program has delivered worldwide (nearly 240 million to date). In the Behind The Seams building, several wardrobes are on display using the same techniques as the Smithsonian to display them. The Precious Memories exhibit in front of DreamSong Theatre honors her family and friends and details how their support allowed her to spread her wings. Inside the theatre, the Heidi Parton's Kin & Friends Show features songs and stories about Dolly and her family. Dolly's Home on Wheels bus returns as part of the museum area, and a new Dolly Fan Shop with exclusive apparel, accessories and keepsakes has opened as well. Coverage includes CNN here, a WJHL interview with Dolly Archives curator and Dolly's niece Rebecca Seaver here, Billboard here, The Knoxville News Sentinel here, WVLT here, WBIR here and here, WATE here and FOX News here and here.

    Elle King Addresses Dolly Tribute Fiasco
    Singer Elle King last week broke her silence on her drunken behavior at the Grand Ole Opry during Dolly's birthday tribute. In an interview with Chelsey Handler, she said she filled in as a headliner for the show at the last minute when another performer couldn't make it due to weather-related travel difficulties, and she had recently experienced a very traumatic private matter that left her with PTSD. She said due to the trauma she had not slept or eaten in several days leading up to the performance, so when she drank a few shots before taking the stage, she immediately became so drunk she "disassociated" from her body and did not realize what she was doing. She blacked out until she woke on the floor of her dressing room crying. She said she hand-wrote apologies to both the Opry and Dolly, who personally called her and forgave her. She said Dolly's reaction was "proof that angels exist." Dolly later publicly stated that she had forgiven and forgotten about the incident and encouraged her fans to do so as well.

In a release, Dolly said: "While growing up in the Smoky Mountains, I was always fascinated by butterflies. I used to get in trouble with my mom, 'cause they'd have to come find me, and I'd be chasing a butterfly from one place to another. I was fascinated with them, flying high in the sky. Butterflies are such gentle, beautiful and free-spirited creatures, and I've always related to them with my own personality and how I live my life. They've become my little symbol, and I like to include them wherever I can. That's why this new part of the Stampede show is so special to me. It's bringing a piece of my childhood to life, and celebrating something so beautiful that has inspired me to follow my dreams from a young age."
