"Nobody knows Dolly like Dolly," declares Dolly Parton. Dolly's is a rags-to-riches tale like no other. A dirt-poor Smoky Mountain childhood paved the way for the buxom blonde butterfly's metamorphosis from singer-songwriter to international music superstar. The undisputed "Queen of Country Music," Dolly has sold more than 100 million records worldwide and has conquered just about every facet of the entertainment industry: music, film, television, publishing, theatre, and even theme parks. It's been more than 50 years since Dolly Parton arrived in Nashville with just her guitar and a dream. Her story has been told many times and in many ways, but never like this. Dolly on Dolly is a collection of interviews spanning five decades of her career and featuring material gathered from celebrated publications including Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, Playboy, and Andy Warhol's Interview magazine. Also included are interviews which have not been previously available in print. Dolly's feisty and irresistible brand of humor, combined with her playful, pull-up-a-chair-and-stay-awhile delivery, makes for a fascinating and inviting experience in downhome philosophy and storytelling. Much like her patchwork "Coat of Many Colors," this book harkens back to the legendary entertainer's roots and traces her evolution, stitching it all together one piece at a time.

Musicians in Their Own Words

Including newly transcribed interviews from radio and TV shows, long out-of-print interviews collected from obscure magazines, and, of course, famous interviews from the pages of major magazines and newspapers, the books in the Musicians in Their Own Words series are a dazzling showcase for the thoughts and theories and observations of some of the most beloved entertainers of our time. Ranging from simple question-and-answer sessions to multilevel descriptions of the performer and complicated conversations with preeminent journalists, they are arranged in chronological order, often amounting to a kind of autobiography. In many cases, these books bring readers as close as they can get to the artist’s own story, told in his or her own words. Whether you’re a fan of jazz giants, warmhearted troubadours, rock legends, or artists that all but defy categorization, these outstanding collections give readers an unrivaled glimpse behind the microphone.
