The Blue Valley Songbird is singin tonight!,
This review is from: Blue Valley Songbird [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Dolly's 1999 made-for-tv movie has finally made it to home video. Dolly's musical and acting abilities both shine on this release. The movie, based upon Dolly's fictional story song "Blue Valley Songbird" features Dolly playing the read headed Leanna Taylor. The plot centers around Leanna trying to make it big as a country sginer by playing night clubs and fighting to get on a major label. Dolly songs featured in the movie are "Blue Valley Songbird", "Wildflowers" (peformed beatifully by Dolly accompanied only by her autoharp!!!), "I Hope Youre Never Happy", "Runaway Feelin". Two songs never recorded by Dolly, also appear in the moivie these are the gospel standard '"Angel Band" which is by far the BEST version ever!!! The other new track is the Dolly penned duet "We Might Be In Love" which is peformed several times as a duet by Dolly & co-star Billy Dean. This movie will please any Dolly or Billy Dean fan!

Saw Billy Dean last night. He opened for the Oak Ridge Boys. He told a hilarious story concerning the making of the movie.
It was pretty obvious that he still loves and respects Dolly Parton.
