Learn 15 of the Very Best Hits Of Dolly Parton, the country singer-songwriter who took Nashville, then the world, by storm with her sassy, witty and creatively crafted tunes whose simple lyrics and catchy melodies made them some of the most loved songs of all time. Every song in this collection of Dolly Parton sheet music is arranged for Piano, Vocal and Guitar, with full lyrics and chord boxes.
Dolly Parton’s progression from talented backwoods kid to world-famous country singer-songwriting star was the stuff of Nashville legend, and testimony to her highly skilful self-management. Underneath her big-hair and busty image was a sweet and instantly-recognisable voice apparently incapable of hitting a false note, and a songwriter of exceptional talent. This talent managed to write fun, upbeat and universally-loved songs like Nine To Five and Islands In The Stream as well as melancholic and poetic ballads like Coat Of Many Colours.
It is testament to her abilities as a songwriter that two hugely popular hits, Jolene and I Will Always Love You are cover versions of songs originally written by her; these versions being good, but never quite living up to the way Parton performed them. Since moving to Nashville in the 1960s (relocating the day after finishing high school), Dolly Parton has had an incredibly illustrious career, becoming the most famous and most loved country music star in the world. Her latest release, Blue Smoke, features new songs and new covers, some of which are included in this Dolly Parton sheet music collection, such as Blue Smoke, Banks Of The Ohio and You Can't Make Old Friends.
Bolstered by a momentously fun performance at Glastonbury 2014, drawing the biggest crowd the festival has ever seen, the success of the album goes to show that even after 42 studio albums, she still has the knack for impeccable songwriting, performance perfection and a sense of humour that endears her to millions. With this Dolly Parton sheet music songbook, you can learn 15 of her biggest and best songs, taken from her timeless albums, all arranged for Piano, Vocal and Guitar. You'll get the Piano parts and vocal melody in standard notation, as well as every funny, heartfelt and poetic lyric, as well as chord boxes and symbols for Guitar.
