Dolly Par­ton builds on film suc­cesses

Albany Times Union - - NEWS -

Dolly Par­ton says she never re­ally as­pired to be “The Girl in the Movies,” the ti­tle of her Golden Globe-nom­i­nated song from the new dram­edy “Dumplin’.”

Co-writ­ten with hit machine Linda Perry, the song ex­presses the re­bel­lious, plus-sized ti­tle char­ac­ter’s se­cret long­ing to fit in, to have happy Hol­ly­wood end­ings — just like “the girl in the movies.” While Par­ton said she could re­late to many el­e­ments of the song’s lyrics, “I never had a dream of be­ing on the screen. I fig­ured I’d grow into that, and I did. But my mu­sic was most im­por­tant.”
