The Wisdom Of Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton’s image is glittery and bubbly, blonde wigs and rhinestone dresses – which belies the powerful brand of feminism that attracts her to adoring fans. Sarah Smarsh joins host Krys Boyd to explore the creative genius of the iconic singer and actress — a prolific songwriter of more than 3,000 songs — and a pioneer for exploring class and gender issues in America. Smarsh’s book is called “She Come By It Natural: Dolly Parton and the Women Who Lived Her Songs.”
