Fresh update on "dolly parton" discussed on Marsh Chapel Service
"Who did not give up after years of people telling her no. Product. It's Texas. She recalls watching endless hours of Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers and rocking out the Rascal Flatts. She was briefly a contestant on American Idol, making it up to the top 50 and one day ran into a famous DJ. Who asked her what type of music did she sing? And she blurted out country. And the rest, they say is history. Fear. Out. Insecurities and knows I've been a part of her story. But she never lost her faith. And she never lost her way. She never left a stormy sea disrupt the columnist of her in their spirit. And we, too, are to remember that the one thing the world cannot change is the fact hammered home in Jesus' parable. The reign of God is within us. There is a curious line in for 36, which says that the disciples to Jesus out in the boat that night, just as he was. What does that mean? Capacity mean that Jesus State where he had been in the boat for most of the day. At the beginning of the Gospel, Jesus pushes just offshore in the boat and teaches the crabs that are gathered along the shore. So when Jesus suggest that they moved to the other side of the lake, he didn't have to move from where he was. Also of note is that mentioned are other boats on the water as well. Making one wonder of this was a storm of reality or a storm of the in their spirit. When it's left to wonder about the line. Just As he was For accepting Jesus just as he was presented the disciples with their greatest challenge, and that remains a challenge for us today.

On one side, the waters a rough and choppy And the waters on the side that Jesus is on our com And in the middle of all this confusion, Jesus chooses to make this a teachable moment. There were no fancy pulpits. No green on the altar to mark a change in our church year to ordinary time. Here is a man and a boat talking about sees birds and trees. And most people, most especially the disciples in Mark's gospel instead of being and wonder, and are are just simply love, shaking their heads and confusions. So when the waters get choppy in our life We can shake our heads in confusion and say, Why me? We asked this one. Our lives are appended. Note that Jesus never says there's nothing to be afraid of. Instead, he says, Why are you afraid? The challenge is to believe in the reign of God, despite living in the world that this field was storms. We know The difficulty maintaining that part of our faith. As long as Jesus in the boat with us we can continue to say to ourselves. Do not be afraid. All in with the blessing that pro Francis gave And the empty ST Peter's Square. At the Vatican on March 27 2020 He said. Like the disciples in the Gospel. We are caught off guard by an unexpected turbulence Storm. We have realized that we are on the same boat. All of us, fragile and disoriented. But at the same time important and needed All of us called to grow together. Each of us and needing of comfort of the other..

Currently over sixteen hundred. Local communities provide the imagination library to almost eight hundred fifty thousand children each live across the us canada uk. Australia and ireland. It's amazing she also helped to find one of the covid nineteen vaccines so i mean i could go on and on about dali yes. We absolutely could. Let's bring it back to the theme park. Dollywood was opened in one thousand nine hundred eighty six and one of the really interesting things about this. Is that for all its growth and offering of thrill rides. The park still retains a lot of history in roots. The park now known as dollywood has gone by several other names throughout the years and it still pays homage to the older parts. There are four years in the modern park river town junction. The village country fair in craftsman. Bali dollywood offers a fully functional. Gristmill where you can get incredible cinnamon bread and rolls and a fully functional chapel. That was actually named after the doctor. That delivered dolly truly.

Welcome to the show. Thanks so much for having me and we really appreciate you coming on chatting with us. So robin our both. We're going to confess it. Where such huge fans of dolly. So can you talk about what her influence in the park. Looks like it could be major things or just simple touch here and there. Just give us a break. Yeah absolutely. I mean who doesn't love dali if you know anything else are dolly. We claim. She has a national treasure every believes she's just about as genuine as they come. We do see dolly from time to time so it's neat that the park not only bears her name. But there's there's things around that just remind you of who she is and what she means to a community here and at large but start dollywood really was her vision and so it's her. Her name is on it. She has the managing partners who know the theme. Park world but dolly. She really started this park to bring more people to the area to create jobs. And she's done both of those things so just the very welcoming nature of the park in a. We've were proud. Always tell people. Were the friendliest park. We won that award so many times that they actually retired at so now have the best park experience award from the golden ticket amusement today awards dolly wants us to be welcoming into you. See that and just the. The charm of the park itself are host week. We actually call our employees hosts because people who come our guest and so everyone who works there were hosting you so it again. In the culture in the nature of of who we are dollywood. You're going to see There's there's actually if you want to come for the dalai factor. You're gonna find dolly. There's a whole museums. Actually a fantastic museum chasing rainbows. It has things one of the things. We like to joke about dolly. Never throw anything away whether it's warehouse in nashville or if it's at dollywood we've got our hands on just really neat things. I mean her birth certificate and a replica of the coat of many colors. Actually it's a replica. Because you know. Intrigue fashion was continued to be handed down so that code is is longtime because it was down the many more kids after dolly but Her mom made another one for on us to put on display. So you're gonna see the coat of many colors. You're going to see movies threats and costumes from her movies. You're going to see you know dresses. Steve warranty to award ceremonies. You're going to see her awards museums. Fantastic there's also a replica of her. We like to call it the tennessee mountain home. So if you don't know dolly was one of or is one of twelve children so she grew in a very small home and so we need to put that in the context of walking through this house credible. You're like how limped year. The beginnings replica of the home. In what i mean by replicated. Her brother built it. Her mother decorated it. So it's not the home. She grew up in. But it is true to representations of of dali's. You're gonna say you know things like that in the park. There's there's there's smaller things like a popular. Eatery is drive in will read is actually a nod to the very first place. Dolly parton had a hamburger so easter eggs. You know the pines theater another location. That people don't know but that's where she had her first concert. So there's lots of things throughout the park that it's not in your face dali if you want that there are different areas. Not the whole. It's not all dolly all the time. So there's there's a lot but you have to kind of know where you're looking. Yeah i remember go into dollywood way back might have been the early nineties and then just recently. My daughter's chorale group went for to sing at dollywood. And i was shocked at all of the roller coasters. I mean there are rides galore. Can you talk a little bit. About what kinds of rides and attractions are dollywood. Mentioned some of it but talk about more than rides and stuff. Yeah you know. A lot of people don't realize that jolly win actually is a fantastic coaster park. You know a lot of people Thinking oh it's it's probably small little entertainment park actually does quite a few of the the big name coasters that the coaster enthusiasts talking about so yet we have our parking one hundred sixty acres. And we've got eight bay coasters so we've got lightning rod which you know we love and we're very proud to to reintroduce this year. I had lots of work in the off. Season practically brand new track thunderhead. That's a wooden coaster while eagle was the first wing coaster in the state So we liked to go. After unique rides we have fire chaser. Express which is a considered a family coaster. The reason is considered family is because it has a very low height requirements. Thirty nine inches. My actually two little boys and both of them were writing. Fire taser express when they were three. So you know on a coaster is kinda crazy but it's a fun unique ride. It launched as you out of the station forward but then by the time you're ending the ride you get launched backward. So that's it's a dual launch coaster. So that's a lot of fun so we we look for a lot of the The rides that are unique or that offer something that people haven't experienced
How Libraries Can Help You Learn, Connect and Grow With Rebecca Stoltz
"I am excited today. Because you've got a guest on. This is a guess as a little out of the box. From who've you brought on before. And i'm really excited that rebecca salsas here and What what are you guys talking about today. yes so. I'm really excited. That rebecca was able to join us today. Rebecca is the executive director of the josephine county Library foundation and is really an integral part. The library there in just being county. Where grants pass. Where i live is located. And i just wanted to spend some time talking with rebecca about the value that libraries bring to our community and to our lives and so rebecca. Thank you so much for being here. Absolutely thank you for having me ma. It's our pleasure our pleasure so We tell us just a little bit about how long you've been working with the library and What your position entails right now so i have been through. Many different transitions At our library. And i've been working about eight years back. When the library was a nonprofit i was doing the fundraising and now i've transitioned over to the library foundation and i'm not the executive director and my job is to help raise funds to support special programs and things that are outside of the library. District's budget very nice. Very nice and and i know there's a long history there with what happened in josephine county with the library system Do you want to just give a brief overview of that of what happened to it. Seems like almost twenty years ago now with libraries being defended and then what what happened in the community after that absolutely so in two thousand and eight the libraries were closed and e funded and the community really rallied. They wanted to have a library in their communities so it was a grassroots efforts and they raced funds and was able to st- originally started out of you know checking out. Books are lending out books in their vehicles in a parking lot and then they were able to raise enough money to open up. The libraries and tons of work was involved with that and our library system. Which has four branches. One in grants pass one in williams one out in the ohio valley and one out of wolf creek operated as a nonprofit for ten years so phenomenal work. I'm and it was really exciting to see a community so passionate and really finding the value of libraries in a community because there there weren't a whole lot of libraries being run as nonprofits at that time. We're there no. Our library system is kind of like a unicorn very unique. We had over three hundred volunteers at one time. Doing all of that work which is just amazing. And even within it becoming a nonprofit. There were still three over three hundred volunteers that were checking in books. Checking out books doing all of that work. In fact we have about two hundred fifty volunteers. That still are doing that. Work today. so wonderful i my. My sister has has volunteered to the library. Here for years before covid. Kind of shut down the the day to day operations of checking in and out books but What what. I wanted to kind of touch on i. I remember this is this is my embarrassing story is probably sixteen. Seventeen years ago. I was much younger and definitely not as wise and i was standing in line at a community event here in jackson county and we were at the library and i had made an offhand comment about. Why do people need libraries anymore. and what. i didn't realize. I was standing right behind. One of the board members for the jackson county library and she took me to task for about five minutes explaining the value of libraries to the community. So i would love for you to just take a minute And i'm gonna humbly ask why our library still relevant today. It's a great question and we hear it quite often. Actually you know not. Everyone has the same resources in today's world and libraries are the technology access points for so many people and we see that even more now that we've endured through a pandemic and libraries as a whole. There's just so much more than book. Repositories the cultural and community centers. And our library here in grants pass even attracts more foot traffic then the local post office so when you think about all those long lines in the post office and how busy it always. Is your library here. Josephine community library is is busier than that. And really we service as venues for community meetings host workshops from anything of you wanna learn about coating to changing a tire and i could also take a task for a long time about the importance of libraries. But just a couple numbers to run by. You is each month. More than twenty. Two thousand items are checked out. And they're in homes within our community and in a county where at least a third of our residents don't have computer or internet access at home patrons lock more than fifteen thousand computer sessions in a year and have nearly forty three thousand personal devices. Connect to the library's wifi so it is a library is so much more than just books in building. It's really an important piece of the community where people can connect and grow. I just can't agree more promptly. What got me back into. The library was have having a daughter. She's six now. You know taking her back to the library to have those experiences in the children's roman being able to kind of just see the books touch the books and kind of just have that that feel of what a library feels like is just phenomenal. I know you. There's just so many Children's programs happening at the library is as well absolutely and we have families with kids of all ages coming to participate. Whether it's our summer reading program we have sensory story times the dolly parton imagination library program or registering kits through josephine county to receive free books. Mail to them Every month and and that that is just such a fantastic program. That was a partnership. I think with The library in rotary there in josephine county. If i'm correct but That is really phenomenal. That is any any family can sign up for it. Any child and from birth to five years old every month. They get a new book in the mail. Mail to them. Yeah it's it's wonderful and we have over two thousand kids currently receiving books every month in josephine county through that program and and thanks to all for the rotary groups in grants pass and and the many funders of that program.

What Is Your Back Catalogue Worth?
"What's asiapac. A low worth has an intrinsic value to you as well as the audience. You're creating for go back catalogue is when you create work. This not just focus on what's current but takes account of the longer term. It's content that pertains fairly because there's something universal and perennial about it in this way. Not only is it valuable to others. It also helps manual position in the marketplace. Currently there's a flurry of music. Artists alina back catalogs. The lives of bob dylan new young secure of done it even dolly parton thinking about pissing beat to be head so if you build an audience share content defines. Its home of your audience. Your back catalogue can also become something. That's desirable catholic. A work is your audience can always access. It's worth the grows and evolves alongside your audience. You can become a self replenishing goldman in times of new clients have improved that you'll someone who does the work and potential clients getting comfortable with your approach. A website that shares one or two articles every now and then feta video and if you four-page e books does not come across as high value however one of the back catalogue of regla audio writing and video content posted over a period of time suggests is a place of value to us on a u. at the media online in two thousand and twenty joe pelosi said to everyone but anyone michelle content if it went tomorrow. If not your content you have a problem a back cutler means you invite days that you share today but also track record that shows. You're someone who keeps and has kept on giving me never become irrelevant by choosing to rest for used in the past with touring on home to the ever-growing increase in streaming. We're seeing a trend for music. Artists selling the rights at back. Catalogues artists unrealized by a cashing. In on the value of songs they produce david as uk based rotea fund. Hypnosis is obtaining the rights to artists from blondie to mark ronson in the sky article musical journalist. David sinclair said. If you're talking with the idea if you're a rockstar. If you bob dylan you're thinking to yourself. This might be time. He's getting twenty using comp one year right that in a lump sum in sakir who sold the rights to one hundred. Thirty five songs to hypnosis. I'm humbled that songwriting. And given me the privilege of communicating with others being a part of something bigger than myself autism now handing over the word ridden and shed over the years for fake off certainly does not mean tied in this context. This story of selling bank catholics chimes with how we in the beats a bass bass produce work for an audience. It proves that when you work is relevant to others this more reason to keep going the blog articles you produced back in two thousand nine nineteen. Maybe didn't get many views when they were first published. But that doesn't mean the not value sitting within your overall bank of work similar to music artists. Your job is to keep plane so that you keep developing your audience when people find you they can then join the dots and get a more complete picture of y you share is relevant to them.

Two thousand thirteen almost eight years. Now here's why building a back. Catalog of content provides vani in both the short and long after the first one. Is this over time. People see the value provide be prepared to play. The long game is so important. I wonder where ought be now if i hadn't been producing content every week for you at the median.

The one thing that has remained constant from me has been my writing. This was the tree. I planted back in twenty thirteen and new branches of grown. It made introducing in person and then online live events easier. Don't think of the word you produce in isolation look at it as a way to connect your intentions and third lake is greater use beyond the immediate space producing a back. Catalog extend your scope by this. I mean what stance a piece of work in one channel can extend into other formats. For instance blogs have become talked topics for other people's podcast.

Nineteen of course so we got together over zoom and yes it's mid november but when dolly parton says it's the holiday season eat is the holiday season so just to give you a visual. She's sitting in front of a christmas tree. She's got some beautiful sort of gold decorations and ornaments next to her I did my best putting some twinkly lights from ace hardware on the bush outside my window and i found a green shirt so that was my holiday spirit in mid november. Where in that spirit. Because she's got a new holiday album a new christmas movie net and then there's this incredible big coffee table book that is really turns through the pages of her career and tells the back story on those famous songs that you love so without further ado. Let's get right into our conversation on the sunday. Sit down podcast with the great dolly parton. Hello dolly it's so good to see you. Well how long you in person this is. Good as it's going to get right now. I know. I've been down there to dollywood with you so many times. I wish i was sitting there with you but here. We are talking on a computer. Strange times. Aren't they well. They are crazy. Times daughter was doing pretty good is. We're being careful and safe. And all that. But i'm just happy to be here with you. We're making we always make do whatever's going on don't do we do. We do so. You've got your christmas setup. i've got a couple nights here. Just told you. I've got my little santa mug here offer you bali. Explain why we're in that christmas spirit and it's a couple reasons but first of all the wonderful christmas album that's already out. Holly jolly christmas. Why did you feel like this was the year for the an dolly parton christmas album. Well i've been wanting to do another christmas album for a long time near my album with kenny rogers. Christmas was really a big hit. And i just loved keenan. I thought well. It's been thirty years. So i need you another one their own so i wanted to write a few christmas songs and a had the time to do it since we had kind of all holed up at home so i started writing some of these original songs and not gathered up some more the old classics and grabbed a bunch of friends. And we're just kind of went for it turned out really good always loved the song. Holly jolly christmas burl lives. And so i. I was just saying it because i was planning to record it and i just started. Play dog chris. It was like it was made for you. it's perfect you mentioned the duets and boy. What a list you put together here. You've got my lease on their willie. Nelson is on their michael boob. Lay your brothers on their jimmy. Fallon is on there. How did you go. Yeah go through and decide who you who you wanted to sing with well. Actually when i first started a jimmy fallon can started that whole thing. I was just doing the album. And i was just recording all elvis songs and i remembered years ago that when i was on jim show around the holiday season. He'd asked me to sing the Song for christmas. Is you mariah. I know it well enough to sing it. And that's hard song now. She's saying so great. Hey i don't think on touch that right now. So i felt bad about it so we earned it it. When i was recording the album. I was just gonna sing it so i'll call jimmy. Wouldn't you by any chance be willing to saying the all christmas. Is you with me on my album. He said lord dollar. Don't take myself serious as a singer. I said i think you have a great voice you all the time you know. We've done things together. He said well i'll try. It can't promise that if it does sound good you use us. I promise you that. But i thought it turned out great and so after got him i thought what am i get some more of these great people so then i started asking other people to do it. And that's kind of had all star data. Jimmy says he was very nervous because as you say he likes to mess around with singing but now this is for real doing a duet with dolly parton on her big christmas album. So how'd you convince them to finally let you put it on. I can i try to convince him. I said i really honestly thank you. Have a great voice. I what you all the time. You do all these payers. Richard voice is really good and so he said i. Just i don't know about being on a real record. I said come on. Trust me on this. So he did. And i think he turned out good. He works really well with kent. Who produced the album. Kit talked to him and they work back and forth sending the files to his engineer. 'cause we of course had to do all this different like we're doing now. We had to send the stuff too and they would work in their own studio so when we got a kit worked with him and he felt very comfortable with so we got it done and after we asked. If you don't like it. I'll keep my promise and he's no. I think it's pretty good. I think i'll let you change. Let you do it. So that's what we did. Well he rose to the occasion. You're right he did a good job We were just talking about the beautiful beautiful song pretty paper. Which is your do it. Willy nelson and. I didn't realize he wrote that song. Well hey dead rat song. And it's been one of my favorite songs for so many years. Roy orbison of course had big hit record to back when you wrote it. But roy against had the biggest hit but i was putting this on the album too and i thought you know. I'm going to see freely sing with me so i called him up. I said we'll willie. Would you saying on pretty paper with me. Because i love the song he said. Are you crazy. He wrote the song crazy he said. Of course i'll sing on. Not only that he played guitar. And i just love that track status absolutely one of my favorite things on the outside. I agree it is such a beautiful. I think that's going to become a classic again with the two of you. You've last time. I think i was down at dollywood what it was also around christmas time for your nbc movies which were so successful and we were talking about the meaning of christmas to you and how important it was to you as a little girl and how much your mom especially instill that spirit in you. What is christmas. Time mean to you ali. Well we were brought up. Of course now grandpa mom dad and we always had our christmas service at the church but we were taught to brought up on what the true meaning of christmas for us. It was the birth of jesus and all that but we all always celebrate it. Even though we didn't have all the glorious things like we have here now are all the presence mom always made. Everything's special we made our own little ornaments for the trees and mama always cooked. Something good told all the good stories from the bible and rescind all the christmas songs so it was always a special time for us. You do christmas big now. I guess a little different than it was two room house wasn't it. It's different. But i always think about that and i always try to keep some traditions. Go on the little things little ornaments and things that momma used to do and know how to do those making a bows out of rags and scarves the colourful. Little bows that you can hang on your tree and the pine cones. We used to hang on the tree. So you can make all kinds of things. But i always have my little traditional christmas and little christmas tree that of course i like all the now that i can afford special. You got some nice stuff they right behind you and the christmas spirit is really in you this year. Because it's not just the album. You've got this netflix. Movie dolly parton. Christmas on the square. You wrote music for that to tell us more about that. Executive producer star right music. You're doing it all here well. I'm very very proud of this project. It is on netflixif and it comes out. I think the twenty. Second debuts on netflix. But i wrote fourteen original songs. It's a story sam. Haskell had come to me with this idea he's also my partner a executive producer on it and so. He told.

Yeah all right now. It's a cow but from there. You're you're you're just starting your career which is cool and I'm glad that you have some time as you're looking for a job to hang out here so let's talk about some stories that are popping up on your feed today. Let's start off with Harry styles. Fan Big Fan Big Fan Solo or with one direction both Folha. I like his first album right rather than the new one that he just came out so so it was just reported that Harry styles is building a forty million dollar not mansion. They're calling it as superman super so. He's knocking down to multimillion dollar or pounds properties into one that which is crazy so he probably bought to multi to twenty million dollar properties. Right and said I'll take both like imagine having that power David. Imagine having that much money where you can knock down tuned mansions and build one mega mansion. Like why wouldn't you just like put out? Put a bridge output. A Bridge between the two manages new city live city. It'd be owning one big home but I get it so all these people which is so. This is interesting so I was reading that he hired Meghan Markle's interior designer which is odd because Megan. Well I guess Meghan Markle's interior designer was looking for jobs since yes. They left London and and move to Canada so beach between them. The houses have boast ten bedrooms which never understood as a celebrity. Get your friends and family come over a lot of friends but ten bedrooms is a lot like I got. I got three in my house. I got three bedrooms for like three and a half kids guest room and imagine ten bedrooms. That's a lot Ten bedrooms a game room cinema as and there has to be a movie theater in summer and of course a very impressive spiral staircase obviously elevator. I think there's an elevator somewhere right there. You gotta think there's an elevator somewhere. Forty million Yes so that's interesting. That's interesting where they're at. E You know I think in the realm of everything Harry's definitely doing very well for himself post one direction life you so now Madison Square Garden again. Yes for like the show Harry Wean. I'm excited I don't know what I'm going to be now. You hear the name Harry Wean after come ready but also like mass garden so like no Massey. Obviously can't go too hard. I I automatically think he's like I want everybody in the world thing Harry Wean Harry Harry by Merch Limited edition early. So this is interesting. So it's been a decade. I Dunno if you even remember this story but Sandra Bullock was blindsided about almost ten years ago by Jesse James. Right and he turned like. Oh yeah so. A sorcery feels that that Sandra is not happy that are XS is returning to reality. Tv what is he doing? He's going back to where it all started like. So he started A revival of monster garage this series. Because that's where we started and Sandra so it's going to be hard. I guess the reporting that Sanders going to be like he's back in the limelight but at the end of the day ten years ago. Like if your ex David ten years ago yeah. You're with someone ten years ago they come back into not your life but into the realm of you know the same thing that you're doing right now correct. Yeah would it bother you know? I honestly like if they were wise. I WANNA be too busy to not realize like what's going on. I think Sandra's okay. This is the interesting thing like reading all this stuff like you always hear a source close to who exactly the it could be the guy that was dropping off the seamless order. You know told. Her House then turns around and sells the story so I take it with a grain of salt. I think Sandra bullock is is strong enough as a person to go okay. Great doesn't matter as long. He's happy all the great. I'm doing my thing. Let him do his. The past is the past and I get. I'm surprised because he like he had some very interesting views about stuff right. Yeah I don't know why they would give him platform Reagan. I guess but I mean you. Should you know this now? And if you're listening you understand to everything that's old is new again so bringing back monster garage is i. I'm not surprised by it but I just found it more interesting that they went for the fact that Sandra so upset that she should be fine. A let's talk about a couple that seems to be The seem to be like that High School of couple That we all know where they were together. Then they broke up back together. Broke up now. Let's talk about channing tatum. Jessie J so David. It seems like Channing is ready to get married again to Jessie J to Jesse Break. They were not. They're back together. They got back together. A couple of weeks ago at least instagram official. Okay see only way world known anybody knows exactly so it looks like channing is ready to go now. It seems like one of those movies where the couple breaks up. The Guy realizes what he's missing and then yeah he's honestly goes back and he's ready to propose and get their life started right. I think what if they have like they both have something to promote. Because if you think about it like that's always the case of the celebrity jumps in front of a moving us to save a three legged dog. Who is who is pulling a child across the walkway and a bunch of inmates. Get Out and save. You know everything happens like this one. I honestly think they're they're kind of you know at first. They didn't know what they were doing. You know where they're at and I think channing like hey listen like I'm not gonNa let something great walk out of my life is really pretty. And she's gorgeous really pretty you know and his ex wife is about to give birth yes. She has She she has her own engagement So you know again. Ten Years From now who knows we we could see step. Up is being remade with channing. Tatum Jealous Uno's you watch that. I think I would watch that. I think no matter. How old gentleman and channing tatum age? I think they'll always be very good-looking. Erect Kind of like his loony. Ask and be able to star in a step up remake from the original. I would watch it. 'cause it's been awesome as they're not like in high school and be awkward but also. I think step up now it'd be pretty awkward. All Right WanNa hear your thoughts with this. So you're familiar with Miss Dolly Parton. Right of course and she is known for her aside from Her Music. Her body her body. So she's seventy four years old. Is She really yes? That's wow wait it gets better. Hey she wants to recreate her old playboy cover next year now question something like that now. Where where we're in the the media world that it comes across our feed no matter what someone's definitely GonNa Post. It question is do you stop and appreciate it or do you scroll past it going? No thank I'd give it a lake on twitter. Give it along definitely not gonNA share it on my story my but I would like it good for her and you would have to do it. The interesting thing is Unless your friends like the same thing now a lot of people know that you liked it so you kinda get by with it. I think it'd be one of those things where it's like.

"So you're a creative. Who feels the need to do these side projects? What made you say the side project this year or two or three years? We'll be Dali got a lot of a lot of a give you I'm GonNa give you like a three or four answer and They should all be sort of understood not chronologically because they all happen at once. You know the first thing is i. Guess the the moment I got really interested in Dolly I mean. I grew up in Tennessee so I grew up in the south and Nali partners sort of the patron saint of the place. I I grew up and I mean I certainly knew of her knew her music. But I'd never really like stared directly at any of her songs are her influence and so she I was just kinda there. So part of it is that I've always felt like I knew Dali but I never actually knew her. There is that but I think more contemporary the Two Thousand Sixteen I she Came to Queen's did a gigantic stadium show and it was right at the moment when The general election was heating up. And I just remember like how this day you know you watch TV in the morning and you see the the headlines and it's just this garbage bridge fire of political discourse and then that night Dolly Parton goes and plays a stadium show in queens and first of all everybody around me was freaking how they were so excited and now caught me off guard. I didn't realize that everybody loved Dolly. Everybody here yeah you know in New York City which is in such a dumb naive realization but it really did surprise me and then when they came back from the show everyone was telling me these stories of what it was like to go to a Dali. The show where you saw this incredibly diverse multiracial multiethnic multi age Politically diverse most importantly audience. You have all these different constituencies little slices of America Slam together and they're being polite right. I mean they weren't solving the world's problems or any nice can show there. Yeah they were hanging out so that was the moment I got really interested in Dali but I would be lying if I told you. That was the real reason I did the podcast podcast in addition to growing up in Tennessee and in addition to the two thousand sixteen thing is that in twenty thirteen So I was saying non-linear Right Twenty Thirteen my my dad is a doctor and DOLLY GETS INTO A minor car accident in Nashville and then ends up being taken to vanderbilt. My Dad is a doctor. He ends up giving her medical advice in one of those random send him to a survey she was totally fine and he was only her doctor for a second but suddenly he had a connection to her and then they got to be pals and so so as I was having this thought I had a way to get a message to her dad so it was like you know described call. That's called Ali. Yeah that was that was pretty much I would tell you something. I probably shouldn't tell you this is what I want. I mean they got to be really good friends and it was always like. I don't live in Tennessee anymore. So it wasn't in my face but like every so often his phone would ring and would be her abby that I like I didn't actually believe it was Dolly Parton because that's too weird. My Dad is not that kind of guy who hangs hangs out with famous people and so there's a part of me it didn't believe it but then she sent my dad a little guitar signed from Dolly Parton to give to one of my kids and I remember seeing seeing the guitar and seeing the big cursive on the guitar. I think he really does know Dolly Parton. Leave him at first. I didn't unbelievable unbelievable. It's not that I actively didn't believe him. I just somehow it just as like that's too weird. I can't actually fully take that in and so when I saw the guitar I thought Oh I think he really does know her and It happened to be more perfect season three and we were doing an album of of different musicians. Interpreting amendments from the Constitution petition. And so I asked him you know can i. Can you set up a meeting where I could picture on the idea of. Maybe her doing a song which she did and then at that same meeting when I finally met her. I also pitched her on this podcast as well and you know years later here we are. I'm GonNa tell you one thing that stood out to me as soon as I began to listen to the show and I've binged engine on long South Western road trip just before Thanksgiving and I noticed from the start of the Dolly Parton. podcast a thing that you're already famous for or with radio lab the intense scoring and sound effects and music which we all love With the Dalai podcast. There were these moments moments in the episode. Where obviously you'd have to play a bit of a Dolly Parton Song but you and your team would add sound effects or some new repercussion on top of it like at the end of dollar ticks? You've got Joe. Lean running like with the new backbeat. Yeah and at first I was like this is sacrilegious That mess with Dali's music. How did you get that right because you could have gotten it wrong? Yeah Yeah I've I've I've so gratified to hear that reaction This is not this is this is about Dolly Parton in a kind of multi not verse right like the SORTA I I keep using the the the metaphor of the multi-diverse like each episode is a dimension in the multi because she is kind of everywhere like she has has many many worlds. She talks to so many different people. She has different Chapters in her life that are radically different. And so for me. Like one. Dimension of the multi-diverse was the way that Dali's music travels the way that it can almost like pierce genre and in cut at an angle across twelve genres. And so for me. It was important to try that musically try to embody that musically And so I you know I I did it a lot in certain places and then I played it for some people. And they're like too much STU Miley so then I scaled back and try to just be small footprint about it. I ended up remixing. Joe Lean in the process. Because I just couldn't help it. Listen jet just hearing when you say that as soon as you say I ended up remixing Joe Lean. My heart stops such a big risk. They don't say don't say you don't say your beauty is beyond was there one remix or update of one of her songs that you had done and you can't do it. This will not work. I I would never touch. I don't think anyone ever should touch. I will always love you. you messing with too much too much culture road. If you and Dahlie made a Admi will always love you remix for the album. I would listen I would will shoot you if Dolly walked in the room. Said Jad were doing this. I would do it. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean she said no to Elvis on that song. The you know that story. No now he wanted to make that song and I think his His business person whose name I'm forgetting colonel. Something or other colonels. He he wanted wanted to own half the publishing. Oh No that's Sally Song. And she's like no she wasn't she wasn't a huge star at that point but she's still learning down so I I am really interested. In the timing of this podcasts launch. It comes in two thousand nineteen which kind of seems like Dali's year like this Dolly. We're watching. She's been on a bunch of awards. Shows Getting Honors Performa people. She has a Netflix show. Then there's your podcast as well. Did you plan this timing. Just worked out out that way. I had hoped to release it earlier in the year. I knew that she had stuff happening late in the year. I didn't realize it was going to be quite to this level I know that with Dolly I. I know speaking to her manager. Dana Zell he He will tell you the decade ago. Maybe a little bit longer. A her fan base was mostly over the age of sixty. You know because I mean when I grew up with Dolly just a touch point g there was the the islands in the Stream. Dolly there was nine to five Joe. Lean and then there was like a long eighties period where she was making pop hits but she wasn't and I'm talking late late eighties. She wasn't hugely relevant to people my age or because the late eighties were full of music. That was not Dali's music. Exactly heavy abrasive pop exactly and she dabbled in some of that stuff. You know in in a tiny way and but yeah I know. She wasn't like speaking to a young teenage kid the way that she seems to be right now. But what Danny will tell you that you know over that decade and maybe it has a little bit to do with her being unhappy Montana and being aunt Dolly and because all of those young people right huge audience massive audience all those. Those young fans grew up with Miley Cyrus and they had like kind of crazy Dolly who kind of became their aunt and so now though all those people are in their thirties and they're loving Dali as adults adults. And so. That's what Dolly will tell you. God's heart of it yeah like you know. Miley helped kind of bridge her to an entirely new demographic. God bless Miley. Yeah Yeah but I also think it's partially it's Dali represents a thing in our culture right now that very few other people represent which is this person who can span ban difference who can kind of talk to everybody and I think that's and she has lived in epic life. Anybody who knows anything about Dolly knows knows that she is like the female odysseus like she has journeyed An incredible dirty and there. I think that is speaking to people like that longevity. I think really speaks to people time for a break when we come back. How is Dolly Parton political without ever saying anything political.

"We did a little QNA, and I don't even think the cameras were rolling at this point. She was just answering questions a girl stood up and Astor question. And, and after she sat back down Dolly answered her question than just said, I knew, you know, I don't think so she goes no one knew you got you on camera going through much trash, and then she just looked she goes, you know, somebody loves he when they go through your trash. And we were like, oh my gosh. What's happening is okay? Do we need to remove this person or is it but Dolly was great? She, she let her know. I know exactly who you are. And annot your little intense, but I'm going to be classy, and we're going to keep this conversation going, and everything's gonna be okay. And she handled it beautifully. Wow. And I learned right than in. There's like, okay. Being famous is hard, but you can still be really classy with how you handle people, and that is such a good point. It, it just blew my mind and, and she could have been very upset about. Well, she could've walked in the room and said, I need you to take that girl out of here or whatever, you know, and hope she wouldn't mind me telling the story, I don't think she would it it's all just to say she handles herself with so much class, and grace and is very kind to people, very, very kind of people, and if Dolly Parton, you know, one of a small handful of the most famous people on planet earth can handle herself that way, then everybody needs to get it together, and always, always early, and always professional and never lets us down ever. And I just I hold everybody to that standard probably unfairly. But how do you think why do you think do you think that's how she is so successful, one of the reasons why obviously, she's one of the greatest song. Writers singers performers artists of all time. But I'm top of it. She has his work ethic, this kindness. Do you think that has attributed to her? Yeah. Superstardom. Yeah. Absolutely work ethic. You know, few notice people's work ethic, as artists, can you tell with artists coming through new ones who has work ethic, and who doesn't? Yeah, absolutely. And there are times, I again, I wouldn't name names, but there's been a few artists were thought you don't have the best force, and you're pretty good looking, you know, and you, you dress. Okay. But there's I can sense this work ethic. And I'm like you're gonna blow everybody away and you're gonna be here. Twenty years from now. And, and I have seen it over and over again. And.

"So you can now take an honors course at the university of Tennessee that's called Dali's America. And it's this seminar where they use Dali's life story to help better understand Appalachian culture, though Dali grew up about half an hour or so from Knoxville where the university's main campuses and the class actually looks at things like stereotypes of hillbillies and the way they represented in popular culture. It's it's class. I'd probably like the take. So this is gonna sound strange, but we actually have to thank at least partially for the existence of Buffy the vampire. Slayer Buffy. That's the one. So back in the eighties, Dalian or former measure and roommate sandy gallon founded this production company called sand dollar and dollar actually co produced Buffy as well as it's been off angel and gallon was listed as an exact producer, but partner she stayed out of the spotlight. Even though she she deserves some of the credit. Wow, you know, I think we've talked about this before, but of course you. Member Dali, who was the sheep that was the first successful cloning of a mammal. Well, it was in fact named after Dolly Parton. Now the sheets original name was six. L l three, which is not quite as catchy in my opinion, but supposedly one of the stockmen who was there at the time of six l. threes birth decided to give her the name Dolly because she was cloned from a memory. So now I don't think we have to explain that one, but it makes you wonder like if Dolly Parton would have been offended by this, but as she always does, she just rolled with it and said, I was honored, there's no such thing as bad publicity's. I like that she even made it into a little joke. There. So I think it's funny that Dahlie wants decide to enter a Dolly Parton lookalike contest in Los Angeles, and this was just for the fun of it. But the best part obviously is that she didn't come anywhere close to winning a apparently. They felt that she was too short to be convincing, and the winner ended up being someone in drag. And she, of course, just found this entirely hilarious. But the good thing was that she actually got to walk around some of our biggest fans, and no one, no one in the audience noticed her. That's awesome. Here's something that I'm excited about. There's apparently an anthology series based on Dolly songs that's being developed for net flicks and supposedly will be released next year. That'll be an eight part series. And each episode will be based on a different Dolly Parton song and they haven't announced which songs yet and they're obviously so many to choose from, but I'm really looking forward to seeing it. Yeah, that's incredible. Well, as if we needed any more proof that Dolly always remembers where she came from and hasn't forgotten how to do things yourself, do you know that before she goes on tour, Dolly, actually cooks a bunch of food puts it all in freezer bags, and then loads it up on the bus. And she says, quote, I do cook for a week before I go on tour. So I put stuff in the freezer. So we'll have great country food. If we don't have what I want at all the places we stop. Oh, man, that is so wonderful. Yeah, I, I can't decide which fact I love most in all of this, but just thinking about like the fact that she is partially responsible for Buffy. Being out there, but taking almost no credit as a producer, the whole humility around the look alike contest. And of course, always remembering where she came from with that last fact Van Gogh, I think I have to give you the trophy this week. I was so nervous. You were gonna say, I think I have to give it to Tristan because he's still wearing the wig.

"I'm gretchen rubin and this is a little happier as i may have mentioned i have become obsessed with the life of dolly parton what a life perhaps the pricing lee i'm not that interested in her music though there are few songs i love like jill lean but i'm more interested in her decisions and her personality and there is a story that i love from the life of dolly parton that i wanted to tell today and i have to say there's really no point to the story other than it makes me happy and i hope that it will make you happy to it's about the album trio which dolly parton made with emmylou harris and linda ronstadt it was released in one thousand nine hundred seven even though they'd had the idea for it many years before here's dolly parton describing the idea for that album in an interview she did with oakland i'm so it took you all eight years because eight years in the making emmy lou and linda and you we came friends about twelve thirteen years ago and the first time we were ever together we were in emmy lose living room and we just started singing some of the gospel songs and country songs and we thought boy this sounds good you know because usually it was the kind of harmony that only family usually can get you in family if you're saying there's just a certain bland and we thought we sound like sisters in the we should record it and we tried to do it was almost ten years ago and it just didn't come together then because there was so much there was so much pressure on us labels who's telling us to do this our manager said do this do some rock and roll loose contradicing this is they're all that pressure when you try to do them because you trying to please so many yeah and we just decided we were what we had in mind was too good to be wasted on so much frustration so we just put it on the shelf and we held it and every time we'd get together through the years we'd say we got to do this album so this past year linda call ninian said.
