Dolly Parton to Release Her New Album ‘Blue Smoke’ in May
By Shannon Carlin
On May 13, Dolly will release her new album, which she says is a reflection of her many musical sides.
“On this CD I think there are all of the colors of my life in all the areas of music that you’ve allowed me to dabble in through the years,” Parton told Billboard. “You will hear my old world mountain voice on songs like ‘Banks of The Ohio’ and ‘If I Had Wings’ my tender side on songs like ‘Miss You – Miss Me’ and ‘Unlikely Angel.’ My country / bluegrass side of songs like ‘Home,’ ‘Blue Smoke’ and ‘Don’t Think Twice’ and my funny tongue-in-cheek side on ‘Lover du Jour.”
The new album will also include her GRAMMY-nominated duet with Kenny Rogers, “You Can’t Make Old Friends” and Willie Nelson‘s “From Here To The Moon and Back,” which was featured on Willie’s last album, To All the Girls….
Dolly kicks off the American leg of her tour on May 22 in Tulsa, OK.
