There's no need to go into detail about Dolly Parton's four-decades-old career, the 26 number-one singles, the 42 Top Ten country albums, the Golden Globe nominations she received for The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and 9 to 5, or the Oscar she got for the latter's same-named title song. I won't delve into why her "Jolene" is a pure pop masterpiece or how "I Will Always Love You" sold more copies than almost any other single ever written. You know all that. And since you do, you'll undoubtedly be up at Mizner come Friday night singing right along with me and Dolly.
