“I can’t wait for fans to hear the SiriusXM special,” said Dolly. “It’ll give everyone a little insight into the inspiration, writing and making of Pure & Simple and The Complete Trio Collection.”
Summer looks to be ending with quite a bang for the Icon, with the August 19 release of Pure & Simple, as well as the highly-anticipated The Complete Trio Collection, a three-disc collection of all of the recordings from the 1987 and 1999 albums that paired her with Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris. Together, they achieved four top-tens from the first collection – including the # 1 “To Know Him Is To Love Him” and the Grammy-winning “Telling Me Lies.” Rhino will issue that collection on September 9.
Pure & Simple – a collection of love songs - has garnered glowing reviews, prompting USA Today to say “After half a century’s worth of performance, Dolly Parton’s voice still bubbles like a freshly popped bottle of champagne.,” and Sounds Like Nashville to utter that “the new material here shines the brightest – and that is a very good thing that she continues to grant us occasional glimpses into her genius – as well as her imagination!” The new disc will be available in a regular edition from Dolly Records/RCA Nashville, plus an exclusive version for Walmart that includes a second disc of Dolly’s Biggest Hits.
In hosting the radio show herself, the songstress goes back to her roots, as she gained her earliest exposure as a musical act on Farm and Home Hour, Knoxville businessman Cas Walker’s radio show on WIVK in the 1950s.
