Dolly Parton jokes about being a prisoner of the “cartoon character” stage persona she herself created, but she is dead serious when it comes to her music. This audiobook reveals the songwriting skill and dedication of one of the nation’s most revered country and pop musicians. Janet Metzger’s skillful performance, delivered with a delightful Southern drawl when quoting Parton, paints a respectful picture of the first lady of county music.
