The Old Fashioned #38

Dolly Parton is never far from the news, but lately she’s been everywhere. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Nov. 5, and about the same time she announced that she would actually be releasing a rock and roll album next year with covers that include “Stairway To Heaven” and “Purple Rain.” (I can hear it!) Her years of philanthropic work were rewarded by an astonishing $100 million gift from Jeff Bezos. And, a bit less consequentially, she joined TikTok. Well Dolly, who is about to turn 76 on Jan. 19, is always pure gold in our hearts and we were motivated to put together a set of Dolly-grass this show, so check that out in our third act. Otherwise, we’ve got new music from the Tennessee Bluegrass Band, Trey Wellington and Appalachian Road Show.
