Dolly Parton is a living legend. Whitney Houston might have sung “I Will Always Love You,” however, Parton wrote the original lyrics. Parton is now bringing home the residuals and her contributions to music and entertainment as a singer, songwriter, humanitarian, actress and writer are unparalleled. With a hot new dance track climbing the charts and a sexy new series on Netflix featuring her life’s work and musical library, Dolly Parton continues to reach new heights.
Sorry, not sorry…but the gays were *shook* when news was dropped that Dolly had gone dance track. The country queen and folk music legend is currently 73 years old and has no signs of slowing down or stopping. But an EDM song? Always one for surprises, Dolly paired up with EDM DJ duo Galantis to deliver a fresh little dance bop with Mr. Probz called “Faith.”
Who knew Dolly Parton could leave us all snatched and get that dance floor turnt once again? The “Jolene,” “9 to 5,” and “Coat of Many Colors” singer and songwriter has been performing for 60 plus years and has been a recording artist for more than 50. With more than 47 Grammy Nominations and 25 Platinum selling albums, it’s hard to deny that Dolly Parton is a living legend.
Dolly is so forward thinking that she just announced days ago that she’s already set to release music posthumously. Who does that? Boss Dolly, that’s who! Her recent cross over with Galantis to EDM was so seamless, so effortless, it’s almost as if Dolly has found her new genre and audience. “9-5” has already been turned into a successful Broadway musical and a new Netflix series featuring and inspired by the music of Dolly Parton is streaming now: “Heartstrings”.
When it comes to the United States, one thing all Americans can agree upon is a mutual love for America’s Sweetheart: Dolly Parton. She is a national treasure, one of the best living songwriters, and is seemingly at the top of her game. We cannot wait for more, Dance Diva Dolly!
