Dolly announces new album and novel

Dolly Parton has announced the upcoming release of her latest album Run, Rose, Run available Friday March 4th.

“So many people come to Nashville with their bag of songs,” says Parton. “Whether they’re running from anything or not, they’re running towards a future. That’s what “Big Dreams and Faded Jeans” is about. I’m so happy to finally share the first song from this exciting new album with you all!

The album Run, Rose, Run reflects the story of a young woman who leaves home for Nashville, Tennessee to pursue her dreams of making music and the dark secret of her all-threatening past. Co-produced by Richard Dennison and Tom Rutledge, the album offers an even deeper and more relatable meaning to the novel – providing audiences with an all-encompassing experience on and off the page. In partnership with the release of the Run, Rose, Run album, Parton has once again teamed up with Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams for the second run of her wildly popular ice cream, “Dolly’s Strawberry Pretzel Pie.” An allotted portion of proceeds from sales of the flavor will go to Parton’s beloved literacy program, the Imagination Library.
