Dolly Parton - Blue Smoke: The Best Of Dolly Parton Album Review


Dolly Parton is an international treasure - and a rare breed, at that. She is a massive star with a down-to-earth side that people around the globe have warmed to.  Dolly's latest album 'Blue Smoke' sees the country music star doing what she does best. For those of you that never really understood country music, people like Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers were the ones that made the genre fun and didn't take it too seriously. Or maybe they did take it seriously, but just made fun and infectious along the way.

Dolly Parton - Blue Smoke: The Best of Dolly Parton Album Review

'Blue Smoke' is Dolly's 42nd (that's correct; forty second!) studio album and shows that she hasn't lost her touch with a mix of her greatest hits, covers and some new material.  You get two CD's which equates to 32 songs of Dolly Parton, one disc of new songs and a separate 'Best Of' CD. The new material covers 12 tracks, while the second is 20 of her greatest hits. The most intriguing cover on this album has to be Bon Jovi's 'Lay Your Hands On Me' something that really shouldn't work but somehow it does, proving that she can find country in every song.

'Blue Smoke' also features a rendition of Bob Dylan's 'Don't Think Twice' which, even alongside her proven and most loved hits, sounds as though it was written for her. Later in the album is her version of 'In The Ghetto' which, for some reason, feels like she is the only woman who has the right vocal structure to pull it off. Trust us - if you hear it, you'll understand.

Was Dolly Parton Really Miming At Glastonbury?


Dolly Parton Eminem

It’s nothing new for a universally acclaimed artist to mime in front of huge crowds. Eminem mimed his way through his 2013 Reading Festival headline appearance and still received a mostly positive reaction from a boisterous crowd. But for most live music enthusiasts, an artist miming in a live setting is nothing short of a heinous crime, an unforgivable cardinal sin that betrays the entire point and of live performance and leaves the artist devoid of integrity. Perhaps that best explains the furore that greeted Dolly Parton’s Glastonbury set as many people asked the question- “was Dolly miming?”

'Mimegate' sparked a huge debate over whether the singer was actually singing during her set.

Q.1) Did Dolly Parton Mime At Glastonbury? Q.2) Should We Care?


Dolly Parton Glastonbury Festival

Dolly Parton has been hit with accusations that she mimed songs during her Glastonbury Festival performance last weekend. The 68 year-old country and western star topped off her recent UK tour to promote her new album, Blue Smoke, with a long-awaited appearance on the Pyramid Stage at the Somerset site.

However, her performance has drawn criticism from many who believe that the singer mouthed the words to a pre-recorded track onstage instead of singing live. In the face of the scrutiny, Parton's spokesman has responded with an outright denial: "No, she sings live," he told the Sunday Mirror. "Some people don't know an amazing singer when they hear one."

It was Kay Burley of Sky News who first decided to air her views regarding Dolly's perceived miming. "Oh, Dolly is miming. How disappointing," she tweeted, ahead of a string of similar sentiments from users of the social site. However, TV host Stephen Fry jumped to Parton's defence, blaming television-related delays for making it look like Dolly's sound wasn't synched.

Dolly Parton Supports Goddaughter Miley Cyrus’s Wild Behaviour: “I Was Just Trashy"


Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton has decided to take aim on critics who so often slam Miley Cyrus for her wild child behaviour.

The country singer, who is the godmother of the 21 year-old, believes Cyrus is receiving an unfair amount of abuse for performing in racy outfits, and behaving crudely.

Parton can also relate to the former Disney Star, as she was also victimized for similar things in her younger days.

Dolly Parton For Glastonbury Festival 2014?


Dolly Parton Glastonbury Festival Kenny Rogers

Is legendary country star Dolly Parton in line for Glastonbury 2014? A suspicious gap in her UK June touring schedule suggests it could be a possibility.

The 'Jolene' singer would make a wonderful addition to next year's Glastonbury Festival line-up and, although nothing has yet been confirmed, it looks like there's a major gap to fill on her 2014 UK summer tour. The festival is set for June 25th - 29th 2014 with bands playing, as per usual, on the last three days. Although Dolly will be hitting London's O2 Arena on Friday 27th, she has the following weekend free which would certainly open up a Glastonbury opportunity. Exciting stuff! Plus, her fellow country star and 'Islands In The Stream' collaborator Kenny Rogers hit up the Pyramid Stage at this year's event and, after a show like that, there's definitely a fresh demand for country legends.

We are hoping, of course, that Dolly doesn't wind up in any more accidents while hitting her UK tour next year, following yesterday's 'fender bender' which took place in Nashville. She revealed in a statement yesterday (October 21st 2013): 'I was in a fender bender this morning, here in Nashville. But I am all good. Just a little tired and sore, resting at home.'

The Rap Game Will Never Be The Same After This Dolly Parton Performance

Dolly Parton recently took to the stage of Queen Latifah’s show and it was strange, to say the least. Sporting a black bodysuit and a blond afro, Parton took on a whole new rap persona, which looked awkward enough to remind everyone of their aunt at Christmas dinner.

Dolly Parton, Letterman Show
There were plenty of references to Parton's "wrecking balls."

Not to bash Ms Parton, though, the country singer rapped; "Queen Latifah, she da queen/ Of hip-hop, rap, TV and screen/ She da queen of her own hood/ But I'm the queen of Dollywood, yo," she raps. "I own my territory/ Put that in your pipe and smoke it.”

Folk You! Emmylou Harris Denies Hit-And-Run Attack In Court


Emmylou Harris Bob Dylan Dolly Parton

Emmylou Harris has entered a plea of "not guilty" after being charged with a hit-and-run attack in October. The legendary country singer, songwriter and backing vocalist was charged when police deemed she had crashed her rental into another car while travelling on the 405 freeway, fleeing the scene shortly afterwards.

According to TMZ.com, the Los Angeles County District Attorney filed the misdemanor charge against Emmylou today (January 31, 2013), though the 65-year-old Grammy winner denied the whole thing. She is charged with slamming into another person's car on October 1st 2012 around 10pm, before taking off. Emmylou's representative acknowledged the incident, though described it as a "garden-variety accident that happens every day on the 405," claiming the singer only left the scene because had no idea she had hit another car. Worryingly, Emmylou's not guilty plea means she faces around 6 months in jail if she is convicted of the hit-and-run charge. 

A long-time collaborator of Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Mark Knopfler and Dolly Parsons, Emmylou remains one of the biggest names in folk music. Her last studio album, 2010's Hard Bargain, reached No.3 on the U.S. country chart and No.18 on the Billboard Hot 200.
