Dolly Parton Launching ‘What Would Dolly Do Radio Show on Apple Music 1

Listeners can tune in weekly leading up to the release of Dolly’s first rock album, Rockstar, as she shares her stories, wit, and wisdom on the show. On the inaugural episode, Dolly goes Behind The Seams—also the title of her book available October 17th—with co-host Kelleigh Bannen to talk her look and legacy, celebrating the multifaceted Country and cultural icon, from Rockstar to role model, trailblazer to national treasure. In episode 2, Dolly talks business, from stage to screen, and more, while the third episode explores her philanthropic endeavors and the importance of giving back. On the last episode, Dolly talks about entering her rock-n-roll era with Rockstar.

“I’ve lived a life of many colors, and I enjoyed the chance to sit down with Kelleigh Bannen to discuss different areas of my life and career. I hope the fans will have as much fun listening as we had recording this!” says Parton.

More than a singer, Dolly Parton is a symbol—for strength, for creative independence, for success in a world traditionally dominated by men. In a career that has spanned more than half a century, she has played many roles besides being a pioneering singer-songwriter: fashionista, businesswoman, philanthropist and now rock star. As she prepares for her latest evolution with the release of her new album, Dolly and Apple Music’s Kelleigh Bannen talk through the phases of her life and career in What Would Dolly Do? Radio

What Would Dolly Do? Radio will air weekly on Wednesdays on Apple Music 1 at 5pm PT / 7pm CT / 8pm ET, beginning October 25th.
