In the first entirely new major biography of Dolly Parton for over 15 years . Stephen Miller goes behind the larger-than-life image to find out what makes Dolly Parton tick.


A self-made woman in every sense . Dolly arrived on the Nashville scene as a solo performer bedecked with lurid outfits and exaggerated accessories designed to get her noticed. Later she would bring the same approach to rebuilding her face and figure . but behind the showbiz excesses were always the exquisite voice and an exceptional songwriting talent.


Talking to Dolly's family members . musicians and producers Miller gets to the core of a remarkable woman from a poor East Tennessee background who made it in the male-dominated world of 1960s Nashville and went on to build a respectable movie career as well.


The author explores Dolly's private life . especially her closely-guarded relationships with her husband of nearly forty years . Carl Dean . and her lifelong friend Judy Ogle.


What emerges is a unique portrait of a strong woman who came to town looking like a burlesque hooker but who took control of her life . her music and her career with resolute determination.
