In this revised edition of his definitive biography of Dolly Parton . Stephen Miller has updated his original book on the superstar.


Going behind the larger-than-life image to discover what makes Dolly tick . Miller gets to the core of a remarkable woman from a poor East Tennessee background who made it in the male-dominated world of Sixties Nashville and went on to build a respectable movie career.


Talking to Dolly's family members . musicians and producers . the author explores Dolly's private life . including her closely-guarded relationships with her husband of nearly fifty years . Carl Dean . and her lifelong friend Judy Ogle.


What emerges is a unique portrait of a strong woman who took control of her life . her music and a successful business career with resolute determination. Dolly loves making jokes at her own expense; perhaps the best joke has been how one of America's great singer-songwriters became a legend by being serious about her music while being frivolous about her image.


Dolly has been a huge star five decades. Her ability to pull in and delight large crowds remains undiminished - as many fans old and new discovered at the world's biggest open air festival in 2014.
