About this deal

From Trio to her recent Dumplin’ soundtrack, Dolly’s career is a masterclass in how sharing the limelight only adds to the power of her as individual. We try to list as many as possible, but the chances are that you'll want a Dolly Parton album from around the top.

To be considered notable the album must contain some previously unreleased material, have appeared on a music chart, or have received a certification. The song selection suggests either Parton has what you might charitably describe as a very basic relationship with rock music, or she’s opted for marquee-name crowd pleasing. Dolly Parton learned her trade working on Porter’s show where comedy was an integral part of the entertainment offered.Products labelled '*item fulfilled by Exertis on behalf of hmv' will be supplied to you directly by Exertis via their approved couriers. Shattered Image’ is one of her best songs because she admits the truth of how hurtful the attacks have been, concluding ‘the world is cruel and people are cold’. She absolutely belts out Every Breath You Take, which doesn’t do much for the song’s subtly creepy undercurrent.

The third single, "Bygones", featuring Rob Halford with guests Nikki Sixx and John 5, was released the following day. The album earned 128,000 album-equivalent units, with 118,500 in album sales, in its debut week, making it Parton's most successful debut ever.

When you grow up with an artist and listen along to them, it’s much easier to connect and put their work in context than trying to listen to everything all at once. Parton performed a duet of " Wrecking Ball" with Miley Cyrus on New Year's Eve 2022, and performed "World on Fire" at the 58th Academy of Country Music Awards in May 2023. She has released albums on independent labels since 2000, including albums on her own label, Dolly Records.

The threesome released two albums together, Trio (1987) and Trio II (1999), which have combined to sell more than five million copies worldwide and win three Grammy® Awards. Helen Brown of The Independent found it "so long that it can feel like a bit of a slog" but "after all the glittering joy and fluttering hope Parton has given the world, it's hard to begrudge her a little Dollyoke fun". Her songwriting has always been personal, but she is concerned with the universality of her experiences rather than the narcissistic specificity of what is expected from our modern pop stars.But from the perspective of a listener tearfully pleading for mercy midway through a version of Aerosmith’s I Want You Back – on which Parton and Steven Tyler both deliver their vocals with such torrential force it sounds less like a duet than a systematic attempt to damage each other’s hearing – the chewy-accented naysayers start to seem not closed-minded gatekeepers but the voices of common sense. Popularly referred as the " Queen of Country" by the media, she is also widely recognized as the most honored woman in country music history. Prior to the reveal of the official track listing, Parton had performed "Wrecking Ball" with her goddaughter Miley Cyrus at her New Year's Eve show. However her solo songwriting has not stopped her from working with others, from her many duet albums with Porter and Kenny to the dizzying array of guests she has included on her albums. She began her music career at the age of 13 and has since become a legendary figure in the industry.
