Dolly Parton Surprises Us All by Releasing Nearly 100 of Her Classic Songs on Streaming Platforms
When the going gets tough, the tough hunker down at home and listen to Dolly.
In all seriousness, though, the Smoky Mountain Songbird has been doing so much to help us weather the storm during the coronavirus crisis. Between pledging $1 million to Vanderbilt Medical Center to help fight coronavirus (check out our video below) to giving fans a heartfelt Easter performance of "He's Alive" this Easter Sunday from her home we're amazed by all that she's doing to support us right now. Even her theme park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, Dollywood, is pitching in to help local first responders and hospital workers amidst supply shortages.
Now, we're pleased to discover that Parton has done one more thing to give us all a mood boost: She's making nearly 100 of her modern classic songs once again available on streaming platforms. "Surprise! 93 of your favorite classics are finally available again online! I hope these songs bring some light into your life during these hard times," Parton wrote on her social media channels. "Listen now wherever you stream music!"
Listen we will, indeed, with albums like 2011's Better Day, 2005's Those Were the Days, and 2001's Little Sparrow, we're not sure where to start with so much incredible music on deck. Parton's followers were clearly thrilled by the announcement, with many chiming in with their favorite of the releases once again available for our streaming pleasure. One grateful fan commented, "Some of my faves!!! Better Day changed my life. "A Tender Lie" kills me. And your "Stairway to Heaven" is perfection. Thank you." Another so accurately praised Parton writing, "Thank you, as always, you’re our Sweetheart."
Well, decision time has come, Little Sparrow seems like as excellent place as any to start. Got Spotify? You can get streaming right away.
Once you're done spinning that, you can peruse the "Dolly Parton: Complete Collection" playlist on Spotify here and below.
