Dolly Parton’s soundtrack to the Netflix movie “Dumplin’” drops tomorrow but fans will get a preview of the album tonight on a new CMT special.
“Dolly & Friends: Making of a Soundtrack” will air at 9 pm, and features Dolly in the recording studio with producer Linda Perry and recording with such artists as Alison Krauss, Elle King, Macy Gray, Miranda Lambert, Mavis Staples and Rhonda Vincent.
“I’m excited that folks will be able to see some of the wonderful moments Linda Perry, the amazing vocalists and I shared together behind the scenes of the “Dumplin’” soundtrack,” Dolly shares. “Singing with all these female artists was a joy and an honor, and, Linda and I, even though we are so different, we’re almost totally alike on a creative level – we all worked really well together.”
One of those songs on the album is a stripped down version of Dolly’s classic “Jolene,” and video of her recording it with an orchestra has now been released. Watch them make it here
