Did You Know?

In one of Dolly's syndicated TV performances from the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, she had a "walk on" to introduce a relatively unknown shy gal, wearing a rather frumpy cotton dress, just to say "hello" to the audience. The gal she introduced was Linda Ronstadt.See more »

Early syndicated music show from Dolly, 24 February 2007
Author: OKCRay from United States

Not to be confused with her 1987 variety show on ABC; this was actually a half-hour syndicated music series starring Dolly Parton and featuring guest appearances by many pop and country artists of the day (1976-77). I remember watching this in Chicago on WFLD-TV (channel 32) weeknights at 10 or 10:30pm and had often wondered if any of the tapes from these episodes were still in existence. Fortunately for many of Dolly's fans, a DVD offering of six episodes will be available on February 27th. In addition to seeing Dolly perform several of her most memorable songs (including "I Will Always Love You), you'll also get long-unseen performances from Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Ronnie Milsap and Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr. among others. I'm really looking forward to enjoying these performances again (and hopefully more DVDs yet to come)!
