A spirited homage to Dolly Parton that captures the unique humor, no-nonsense wisdom, flash, and sass of one of America’s most iconic stars. One of twelve children raised in a shack in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Dolly Parton grew to become an international superstar famous for classic songs such as “Jolene,” “9 to 5,” “The Coat of Many Colors,” and “I Will Always Love You.” She is a reflection of the American dream, a role model for the ages, and a mentor to a whole new generation of entertainers. There is much to be learned from her unique brand, her big heart and spirituality, her grit and work ethic. This lively book—part biography, part inspiration, part words of wisdom and life lessons—highlights the very best of the “Dolly Mama,” from her quotable Dollyisms, unrelenting positivity, and powerful spirituality, to her belief in the human ability to overcome adversity. Drawing on Dolly’s two autobiographies, cookbooks, and songs; as well as artifacts; books by her family members; biographies; and decades worth of television, print interviews, and performances, What Would Dolly Do? shows you how to tap into your Inner Dolly with confidence, faith, and humor.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In this audiobook, which is part biography and part self-improvement, the listener learns how to live the Dolly Parton way. Therese Plummer’s slight Appalachian intonations go well with the text…[and] when narrating Dolly’s own words, Plummer channels the larger-than-life entertainer, perfectly capturing her distinct voice, making one almost believe that Dolly herself is speaking. Full of delightful ‘Dollyisms’ and biographical details, this audiobook is an enjoyable listen for fans of the prolific performer.” AudioFile
“Highlights the best of Dolly’s wisdom, positivity, and spirituality…This book helped me tap into my ‘Inner Dolly’— her lessons made me feel inspired and confident.” First for Women
