Dolly Parton: Song by Song
Friday, 6.30pm, Studio Surely the most famous country and western singer-songwriter in the world, Dolly Parton set the cat among the pigeons in the late 1970s when she moved from the Nashville sound to pop, Hollywood and the cover of Playboy. Of the 3000 songs she’s written and sung, It’s All Wrong, But It’s All Right was the one that left country fans feeling abandoned and betrayed but which launched her as a superstar. (It was considered so risque radio stations refused to play it.) But as Dolly, 67, says in Song by Song, the second of a threepart profile, she simply followed her heart. And where would she be today, she asks, if she’d stayed in Nashville? Her success in films such as 9 to 5 proves she made the right call.
