Biography

Biography by David Vinopal

It's difficult to find a country performer who has moved from country roots to international fame more successfully than Dolly Parton. Her autobiographical single "Coat of Many Colors" shows the poverty of growing up one of 12 children on a run-down farm in Locust Ridge, TN. At 12 years old she was appearing on Knoxville television; at 13 she was ... Read more in Amazon's Dolly Parton Store

Editorial Reviews

Singer, songwriter, musician, actress and philanthropist Dolly Parton is proud to release her new album "Blue Smoke." The album reflects the character of the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee where Dolly grew up and has a tone that harkens back to her rootsy, back-to-basics albums. "Blue Smoke" is an all new studio album with most tracks written by Dolly that also features duets with Willie Nelson and Kenny Rogers and covers of Bon Jovi's "Lay Your Hands On Me," and Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice." According to All Music, The remarkable thing is how satisfying an album this is: it sounds good and the songs are sturdy, proof that Parton is far from resting on her laurels.

Customer Reviews

There are some really great songs on this CD!!
tbartlett1998
Dolly's voice is clear and strong, while the music is upbeat and has some real toe-tapping melodies.

I would recommend this CD to anyone who loves Dolly and Country Music.

Spanning an incredible 50 years nearly to the day Dolly Parton came to Nashville in 1964 to become a superstar Dolly has released "Blue Smoke", her 72nd in-studio album. For those of us in North America and Europe who have to wait until May to purchase the CD, "Blue Smoke" is available as an import from Australia where it has already been released to much critical and commercial acclaim. The CD debut at #1 on the Country Charts and an incredible #9 on the Australian Pop Charts thanks in part to her "Blue Smoke" world tour that began Down Under in early February, 2014.

The album has pretty much everything that Dolly can sing or write about. From the Appalachian/Bluegrass sound of the title-track to the beautiful ballads of "Try" and "Unlikely Angel" (from her TV movie of the same name from 1996) Dolly is sure to please all her fans and then some.

Her cover of Jon Bon Jovi's "Lay Your Hands On Me" is simply electrifying and her duets with Kenny Rogers ("You Can't Make Old Friends") and Willie Nelson ("From Here to The Moon and Back", a song she recorded with Kris Kristofferson for her film "Joyful Noise") only add to the essence of the album.

For the ardent Dolly fan there will be a vinyl release of "Blue Smoke" released the same day as the CD edition!

For me, however, it is Dolly's voice that even at 68 she still sings them better than Swift, Cyrus, McBride and all the other gals out there. After all what would you expect from a Living Legend?!

A++ Dolly!

UPDATE: For the week ending May 23rd, 2014 "Blue Smoke" debut at #2 on the Billboard Country Charts and an amazing #6 on the Billboard Pop Charts making this the first time a solo Dolly Parton album has entered the Top 10 on the Pop side. This is a career first for Dolly. The CD in its first week of release has sold over 40,000 copies!!!

Back in 2004 Dolly announced that her next album would be titled "Blue Smoke" and that in addition to the title track, it would contain covers of pop songs from the 60's. She began doing the title track on her tour that year. However the album never materialized, instead she released "Those Were The Days" which was all cover songs. Ten years later we get the "Blue Smoke" album. Overall the album contains a mixture of the type of material she's been doing over the past two decades, bluegrass, mountain, country.
Two of the tracks have been previously released, the two duets. "You Can't Make Old Friends" with Kenny Rogers was released last year on his album of the same name. "From Here To The Moon And Back" with Willie Nelson was issued last year on his "To All The Girls" album, prior to that it was released on the "Joyful Noise" soundtrack with Kris Kristofferson as her duet partner.
"Unlikely Angel" was the theme song from the 1996 TV movie of the same name, but gets it's official release here. "Banks Of The Ohio", the old standard was originally recorded for Dolly's "Heartsongs" album in 1994, but left off the final release. The Bob Dylan classic "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" was originally intended for her "Those Were The Days" album, but appears here for the first time.
Of the title track, originally recorded with The Grascals, musically it sounds a lot like a slightly sped up version of her "These Old Bones", a very bluegrass track. "Lay Your Hands On Me" is Dolly's gospel re-interpretation of the Bon Jovi track. She did to this, the same thing she did to Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven" and Collective Soul's "Shine".

I got my hands on an overseas copy since the US version doesn't come out until MAY 13TH. "BLUE SMOKE" blows Dollys last cd "Better DAY" out of the water. Her vocals are clear , crisp and pure. This is a mix cd of mountain, folk, country, gospel and it all works. some of Dollys best vocals and work to date are heard on " banks of the ohio", "don't think twice, its alright", "unlikely angel "and "if I had wings" This cd has topped the pop and country charts overseas and I can clearly see why. At 68 dolly shows no signs of slowing down. you will not be disappointed in this cd....PREORDER YOURS NOW FOR THE US RELEASE!!

This is a really top and very enjoyable listen, whether you are a fan or not. The mix of Country, Blue grass, Pop/light rock, Old World, and Gospel gives it a diversity which means you never tire of it. Sometimes on albums, we have just one or two favourites; here I can say that I really loved eleven of the thirteen tracks and enjoyed the other two. She wrote eight of the songs.The title track is lively, catchy and pure Dolly. She wrote it and though never previously put on an album, versions from concerts appeared on internet and have been very popular for years. Now we can enjoy the full sound. Unlikely angel is a beautiful love song, first on a TV movie of same name, clocked up several million views on youtube; again never out on album - this Blue Grass version really brings it up to date. Don't Think Twice, a Bob Dylan cover, wonderful, she made it her own and more - one of my all time favourites of her covers. You Can't Make Old Friends, duet with Kenny, is extremely touching and their chemistry works. Wish though that they had blended the voices more and that Dolly had also harmonised more. She really lifted this song in the parts she did and if you are a certain wise age, you will connect immediately. The song Home, is a great,Dolly penned song; the fast wordy mix reminds me of Sugar Hill, it would be a hit if it got air play and became a single. Banks of the Ohio is a haunting gem, it shows why she's the queen. Miss you, Miss me was written for a TV Christmas movie end last year, one she has sung just with her and guitar, simply, clear and touching. If I had Wings is a sister of Little Sparrow, only better. I like the faster tempo and fragile sentiment, simply beautiful.Read more ›
