Dolly Parton, one of the most honored female country singers of all time returns this summer with a much-anticipated album of all-new studio material — Better Day — (Dolly Records) and a world tour bringing her throughout America and then onto the U.K., Europe and Australia.
“I wanted to do an album that would be very uplifting and positive, as well as inspirational,” says the seven-time Grammy winner who was hailed as “one of our national treasures” by Newsweek in 2008. “Times are hard all over. I think people need to feel better and I thought Better Day was a perfect title because it says ‘hope.’”
The BETTER DAY world tour launches July 17 in Knoxville in her home state of Tennessee and will be highlighted by two shows (July 22 and 23) at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
Next, the tour moves overseas starting August 20 and will feature a pair of shows(September 7 and 8) at the O2 Arena in London, the venue where Patron recorded and filmed Live From London (Dolly Records), her widely praised 2009two-disc DVD/CD set that included songs from Backwoods Barbie alongside her many classic hits.
