Dolly Parton is back with another exciting project for her fans.
The country music icon announces “What Would Dolly Do? Radio,” a four-part series airing on Apple Music 1, Apple Music’s global live radio station.
Ahead of the show’s release, TODAY has the exclusive scoop on the upcoming series, in which the singer-songwriter shares her stories, wit and wisdom with listeners. Prior to this, her debut rock album “Rockstar” will be released on November 17th, and her first book “Behind the Seams” will be released on October 17th. Joining him is co-host Kelleigh Bannen.
“What would Dolly do if someone told her she should tone down her style?” Bannan asks Parton, 77, in the film.
“I’d say, ‘To hell with it, I’m not going to do it,'” she replied with a laugh. “I try to do things that are really suitable for me. You have to believe in yourself and you have to believe in your talents.”
‘What would Dolly do? What is the radio about?
In the first episode, the “9 to 5” singer will talk about her appearance and legacy, and how she went from country star to role model, from trailblazer to national treasure. The second episode will feature the two ladies talking business from stage to screen.
In episode three, Parton dives deep into her philanthropy and the importance of giving back. In the final episode, the multiple Grammy Award winner will discuss entering her rock and roll era with Rockstar.
“What I hope most is that I can be an inspiration,” Parton says in the video. “I can be an inspiration, I can leave something behind that might make a difference and just say, okay, if she did it, I couldn’t do it.”
“What Would Dory Do?” “When will it be released?” Did the radio come out?
