ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dolly has always been my favorite songwriter, although I grew up in a family chocked full of them. It was indeed a daunting task to choose eleven of my favorite songs from a catalog so vast. At last count, she has written over three thousand songs, all of which are equally superb. There in was my dilemma, to select the ones that spoke to my emotions and attempt to sing them with as much authenticity and sincerity as they deserve.

I have been asked many times throughout my career to record an entire album of her music, but in my heart and mind, I never felt I could ever do her music or performances justice. So in the end, while making the decision to record this tribute album of eleven of my favorites, I decided to sing the story songs because they resonated with me the most.

I grew up singing harmony with my sister, so this is the way they would sound with our sister harmonies and the family blend we created as kids. I haven’t tried to expand the arrangements or to reinvent them. They were always perfect as she wrote them. I have chosen to sing them as sincerely and respectfully as possible and I hope you can hear that in my humble and honest approach to my sister’s beautiful songs. I am pleased and honored to share my sister tribute, “Mountain Songbird”.

Love ya, Stella.

Stella is a great singer, entertainer and songwriter. All the more reason I am so proud she decided to do a tribute CD of my songs. She was there from the beginning of my career and always complimented and encouraged me in my writing. I admire and respect the way that she chose to do my songs. She stayed true to the original spirit in which I wrote them and yet found a way to make them her own. I really love how they turned out and I think you will, too. It’s been a personal source of joy to be able to hear this loving tribute from one sister to another and just to be able to work that closely with her. I am especially proud of the song we wrote together “More Power To Ya”. I hope you will enjoy this CD as much as we’ve enjoyed working on it for you. Love, Dolly
