Dale Winton catches up with Dolly Parton in Nashville and in a life-affirming interview Dolly takes us on her incredible journey from Locust Ridge in the Great Smoky Mountains, to become The Queen of Country Music. We'll hear many of her songs including her own personal favourite "Coat of Many Colours" to the multi-million dollar hit "I Will Always Love You", which many may remember was used in the film "The Bodyguard" but she explains it could have taken a very different direction if Elvis Presley not Whitney Houston had recorded it. Dolly is in the middle of her UK tour and has just released her new CD: Better Day. The positive force of this unique artist is irresistible and her stories and lyrics cannot fail to lift your spirits.
