Dolly Parton’s ‘Love’ Benefits Americana Music Association
The Americana Music Association is more than $30,000 richer, thanks to the generous donations of several artists, who provided handwritten, personalized lyric sheets for their recent online auction to benefit the non-profit organization.
Dolly Parton raised the most -- a whopping $7,150 for the lyrics to her mega-hit 'I Will Always Love You,' CMT reports. Willie Nelson's lyrics to one of his signature tunes, 'On the Road Again,' brought in $3,510. Other contributions that scored big included Robert Plant's 'Please Read the Letter,' (recorded with Alison Krauss for the multi-award-winning album 'Raising Sand,') Patty Griffin's 'Heavenly Day,' John Hiatt's 'Have a Little Faith in Me,' John Prine's 'Angel from Montgomery,' Peter Frampton's 'Baby I Love Your Way,' and Kix Brooks' 'Red Dirt Road.'
