8:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Dolly Parton NEW!
What can you say about Dolly Parton? She’s been a fixture on the country music scene since 1956, partnered up with Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris to form one of music’s most formidable supergroups (Trio), and is still active today. During that time, it is estimated that she has written about 3,000 songs. They have been covered by so many artists, including Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Tina Turner, Maria Muldaur, Waylon Jennings, Whitney Houston, The Incredible String Band and many more. You know, people keep talking about Whitney Houston’s cover of Parton’s I Will Always Love You, probably because it was associated with a movie. In reality, that cover is owned by Linda Ronstadt. Even Dolly says that. But I digress. This week, Dolly Parton is our featured singer-songwriter, and she’s doing the singing.
