Anyone who doesn't recognize Dolly Parton as a poet should listen closely to this solid tribute to the writer, whose lovingly crafted memoirs and bold statements of self-sufficiency rank her among the greatest country songwriters in history. That said, it's to the credit of the artists here that they don't emulate Parton's recordings but find their own places in these

This is the worst tribute album I have ever heard..the songs were mix-matched with the singers who sang them. One would think with the wide stream talented musicians in the world, why would the most pitful singers be picked for a tribute to the great talent Dolly. The best track on the whole album is Emmylou Harris' "To Daddy", she is the only one who can really sing here..even though there are big names like Shaina Twain, who did sing from her heart, but sounds better singing her own music. There are no words to describe the other singers' covers..even Whitney Houston sings "I will always love you" better than Melissa Ethridge..and "Joelene" was just plain horrible..so sad for a pretty song! If anyone is looking to buy a tribute album to Dolly, wait until someone releases a better line-up of singers..while waiting for that release, buy one of Dolly's CD's where she is the lead singer!

I can't believe it, this CD is so disturbing, it makes me want to puke. She always constantly resolves to violence. Good job Dolly Parton!!!!!!

Well, if you like rap music, you would love this cd. I personally think it expresses Dolly's creative mind and really makes you think, the first time I heard her first track 9 to 5, I fell in love, it made me immediately want to eat fried rice, that is Dolly's favorite food. Anyway, my point is this is not only a song for old people, it is also for the hip young gangsta rappers.

Well, first off, these titles on the cd are so great. They are also american classics like 9 to 5, that is my favorite song on the album. Workin 9 to 5! Sorry i get a little carried away, my point is this cd is great for all!

A good tribute to a great songwriter and entertainment icon. What turns a good CD into a great one is the Bonus track where Dolly herself performs the title track in a way that will make you want your next purchase to be a real Dolly Parton CD.

The only song on this album worth listening to is 'Coat of Many Colors'. Shania did a great job but the rest left a lot to be desired. Wish I has something better to say about this album, but I don't.

I enjoyed Melissa Ethridge voice, she could sing any type of music and sound beautiful. Love her voice!!!!
