Description

Dolly Parton is the most famous person ever to have emerged from the American country music scene, with her iconic cartoon image - mountainous blonde wigs, pumped up breasts and dazzling outfits!

This comprehensive and revealing biography includes interviews with family members, musicians and producers who have worked with her over the years.

This book is a detailed assignment of her music, as a songwriter and singer over the last forty years and author, Stephen Miller, discusses how she shrugged aside the male dominated world of Nashville in the 1960s, to take hold of her career, sell millions of albums and appear in films with Jane Fonda, Burt Reynolds and Sylvester Stallone. This book throws new light on Parton's private life - her mysterious and closely guarded relationships with her husband Carl Dean and her lifelong friend Judy Ogle and her obsession with cosmetic surgery.

Stephen Miller practiced as a solicitor until the early Nineties when he retired in order to pursue other interests, notably American country music. For six years he reviewed albums, books and concerts and interviewed a variety of artists for a weekly country music show on commercial radio station Scot FM. He is the author of Johnny Cash: The Life on an American Idol, also published by Omnibus Press.
