Last.fm Trends: Dolly Parton Back To Make It Better
Dolly Parton is back today, with her new album Better Day. The singer, one of the most successful female country artists of all time, will count this as her 58th studio album.
There aren’t any surprises in her chart for the past six months: Parton’s biggest hits wield an attraction that eclipses any of her later material. With heartbreak anthem “Jolene” far out in front, it’s been placed there by an overall count of 206,879 listeners.
Last release Backwoods Barbie hasn’t done too badly: with 92,323 plays from 12,963 listeners, it can be considered a success by anyone’s standards, but with Dolly’s huge discography it hasn’t made much of a dent in her charts. “Better Get To Livin'” has made it to #29, but a rocky Recent Listening Trend doesn’t quite match up to the smooth lines of her biggest tracks.
