Dolly Parton has made many smart decisions in her long career, and her latest project, Run Rose, Run may prove to be the smartest of the lot!
The recently released album is billed as a ‘soundtrack’ to her first novel, written with best-selling author James Patterson. It tells the story of a singer who moves to Nashville in search of fame and fortune, a subject for which Dolly has first-hand experience!
The concept of a soundtrack to a book is unusual, but not unique. Elvis Costello created one to accompany his 2015 memoir, Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink; however that album only contained two new releases, whereas Dolly has been more ambitious.
With the songs and story in place, the scope is there for a stage musical and a movie. Both of those are maybe’s but in the here and now check out the album Run Rose, Run as we play two tracks every hour on our dedicated radio station.
