Better Day

Dolly Parton, the most honoured female country singers of all time, returns with a much-anticipated album of all-new studio material, Better Day. Coinciding with a spectacular World tour, Better Day is the follow-up to her critically acclaimed and successful Backwoods Barbie album in 2008.

The legendary singer, songwriter, musician, actress, and philanthropist explained, "I wanted to do an album that would be very uplifting and positive, as well as inspirational," says the seven-time Grammy winner. "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'." From the Label

Dolly Parton is my idol, so of course I'm gonna get every new CD out. I really wanted to attend a concert of hers, however she tends to pick cities nowhere near me! Bummer! However, Dolly Parton has the best voice, and her songs are always so inspirational and touching. My favorites on the CD are "Just Leaving", "Holding Everything", and "The Sacrifice," even though I love all of the songs. You wont be sorry buying this CD. Whether you're a Dolly fan or not, you will love this CD.
