Dolly Parton Is Releasing a Children’s Album Because She Is a Queen

Dolly Parton is a true gem and national treasure. The iconic musician and child literacy advocate just announced this week that she’ll be releasing the first children’s album in her 50-year career. It’s aptly called “I Believe In You.”

In a press release, the 71-year-old said:

“My first album was released 50 years ago and it’s been an amazing 50 years since then. I am very excited that now I’m coming out with my first children’s album in all of those 50 years. I’m proudest of all that all of the proceeds from this CD will go to the Imagination Library.”

The Imagination Library is Parton’s charity that sends free books to kids, which began 20 years ago. The album will be available digitally on September 29, and in stores on October 13. You can actually download the title track can be for free on Imagination Library. Some other song titles include “Makin’ Fun Ain’t Funny,” “You Can Do It,” and “I Am A Rainbow.”

Parton also recently mentioned collaborating with Kesha for a revamp of her 1980 hit “Old Flames (Can’t Hold a Candle to You).” She told Rolling Stone why:

“I know [Kesha] because of her mother [who cowrote “Old Flames”]. It was one of my favorite songs that I ever did. I said, ‘Why did you choose to do that song? That’s an unusual choice for you.’ She said, ‘Well, because my mother wrote it.'”

Can’t wait to hear it. Her album cover is so on-point–she is a real life fairy! Let’s also take a look back on some of her classics:
