Dolly Parton Premieres ‘Home’ Video
Dolly Parton has premiered the video for her latest single, 'Home.' The song is the second release from her recent album, 'Blue Smoke.'
The songstress sings about "Home, where the warm winds blowing and the river's flowing ... Where I can lay down my heavy load / And know that I am always welcome home," while the video shows her, ironically, in various outfits and scenes while filming a music video.
'Blue Smoke' debuted at No. 2 on the charts, making it her highest-charting solo album ever.
“I am glad that people are enjoying the music from my new ‘Blue Smoke’ album,” she says. “It feels great to be in the Top 10. It’s always an honor to know the fans spend their hard earned money on my music. Thanks everybody!”
The Tennessee native, who has released 42 studio albums, says 'Blue Smoke' might be the most personal collection of tunes she has ever recorded.
“On this CD I think there are all of the colors of my life in all the areas of music that you’ve allowed me to dabble in through the years,” she notes. “You will hear my old world mountain voice on songs like ‘Banks of The Ohio’ and ‘If I Had Wings,’ my tender side on songs like ‘Miss You – Miss Me’ and ‘Unlikely Angel.’ My country / bluegrass side of songs like ‘Home,’ ‘Blue Smoke’ and ‘Don’t Think Twice,’ and my funny tongue-in-cheek side on ‘Lover du Jour.’”
The 68-year-old is currently in the middle of her global Blue Smoke World Tour, which began in Australia and New Zealand, and will head to Europe next month for several weeks. Keep track of Parton's international travels here.
