Jolene episode is stupid. Dolly is 100 percent correct to stay out of politics. No one wants to hear about your political views either. Keep the focus on DOLLY please.

I had no idea that this woman was so complex. I used to see her as a victim. Beautifully done, nuanced and instructive about America.

This seemed to be more about the host and producer than Dolly. The parts actually about Dolly were fantastic! It would have been nice to focus more on her.

What a wonderful podcast. A bright spot in a dark world. I’ve always liked Dolly, but now I’m in love. 😍😍😍

This is a fun one!
Win8817 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/26/20
It was such a pleasant listening experience. It’s really hard to find something that is so positive and uplifting in the world. Dolly Parton is a great example of how we should all be. The writers did an amazing job telling a good story. I do think just like dolly that some people are thinking...Read full review »

An absolute gem. If you love or even like Dolly, this will warm your heart and take you on a beautiful ride. Very well done.

The storytelling, the history, it’s a fantastic podcast! Thank you

But they tried. The pseudo-intellectual rifs on how the banjo is actually a black instrument, how Dolly’s music is secretly homo-erotic, are just strange. Why can’t they let it be? At one point in episode 4 Dolly actually tells them, “you’re overthinking it.” Indeed.
Steve from monroe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/19/20
I have been listening to Dolly since late 60’s. She is an amazing singer, songwriter, producer, actor, philanthropist, business owner and much more. Some of these episodes started to explore these attributes but did not go very far. The production was uneven at times and fallen into that old...Read full review »

So many times Dolly’s music has lifted me up from a dark blue place. Thank you for the light.

I live outside a big city, and I never really felt in touch with “country” culture. I had my preconceptions about it, but this documentary changed a lot of them. It showed me how universal many stereotypes of country folk are, and how many of them are manufactured by others. And plus, dolly...Read full review »

about Dolly was wrong. Listen! Learn! Love!

I started a new job this year Sevierville and drive on Dolly Parton Parkway daily. I thought I should get to know her better. Wow! She’s so much more than an entertainer. Thanks for sharing her story with us! I know I must be at the foot of Valhalla, but I just can’t seem to get to the top where...Read full review »

I didn’t know much about Dolly Parton. A friend took me to see her live once. This podcast is just amazing. I learned a lot and it was so well done and moving. It was a nice break from Covid and the election. I LOVE Dolly now.

Het is een prettig gepresenteerde, afwisselende podcast, met gerelateerde thema’s als de geschiedenis van country, immigratie en feminisme, en Dolly zelf blijkt een geweldig mens te zijn: ze staat voor verbinding en inclusiviteit
Linniepinniepin via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 09/05/20
Wonderfull!
cesojen via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 09/03/20
There were some great elements of this podcast, but there were also a lot of assumptions about Dolly that were made on the part of the narrator and his guests. Everything Dolly contributed was perfection, I just wish her explanations and spoken words were taken at face value instead of...Read full review »

I’m 58 years old and I’m not a huge Dolly fan, I know maybe 10 of her songs? But this podcast really sucked me in, it is so well done and super interesting. I listened during 5 days and walked like crazy! I’m sad I’ve finished.
Monsén via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/30/20
This podcast was well researched and brought in cultural aspects that kept it interesting throughout each episode - a little music, a little history, a little culture, a little debate of deeper threads, and just enough Dolly. I have always been fascinated by Dolly Parton's uncompromising way...Read full review »

I was raised on a little hobby farm in NSW Australia and I have fond memories of listening to Dolly and watching my grandparents dance. I feel like my world just got so much bigger as did my memories. Thankyou for this podcast!
Alpacaversusbijls via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/28/20
This podcast encompasses the greatness that is Dolly Parton and shows why she has been a major influence in modern society. Dolly Parton’s America is filled with love, forgiveness, music, jokes and laughter, heartache and struggle, growth and redemption. Dolly Parton’s America is inclusive and...Read full review »

Wasn’t quite what I was expecting but really enjoyed it.
BudLightDarts via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/25/20
Its taken me up and down. Just brilliant. The bar has been set so high with this one. Not just for old country lovers.
SimbaMpupuni via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/24/20
I don’t even particularly enjoy podcasts - but I was sucked in within the first few seconds. I’m already a casual Dolly fan, but this podcast goes beyond Dolly. It dives into humanity and being kind ! Well done !
LaceBakes via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/21/20
I wasn’t a dolly fan but after listening to this podcast I definitely am one now!
ROXYBRUNO via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/21/20
I was not a Dolly fan, but rather a fan of beautiful works of journalism. This is a story that is told with such precision and pushes boundaries of storytelling. I recommend this so very much.
Jessica'siPhone via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/19/20
I feel we rarely get the real story of people this famous. But hearing this behind the scenes footage of Dolly and all things that made her, her- super cool. I’ve only known a few people who didn’t like Dolly and those people were douche canoes, so there’s that. Thanks to the work that went into...Read full review »

I was skeptical when this show repeatedly showed up while browsing new podcasts, but then saw Jad Abumrad was behind it so gave it a try. It really is a wonderful series,
Seraphina14 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/17/20
I’ve listened to this twice and will probably revisit again. I’ve always loved Dolly, her music, her persona , but seeing her in the context of every social and political movement of the past 50 years has made me love her even more. Thank you to the remarkable people who made this happen.
Sybilia via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/16/20
She is frank, as are the hosts. The podcast is a beautiful production and we learn more about her skill as a musician and business woman. Outstanding. She is far more brilliant than has been portrayed historically, and this is a fantastic surprise. So glad she is finally being recognized as she...Read full review »

This is a brilliant piece of work. It was entertaining and fun, but I also learned something new every episode. The creators do a beautiful job of weaving together multiple stories and perspectives. Highly recommend!
emdocmom via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/11/20
Listening to this series is an act of enlightened self interest. This podcast takes you to places that are very unexpected and go much deeper than any brief description could communicate. Everyone should hear this. Simply brilliant. Bravo to the creators of this series. This is an instant classic.
RCCpudge via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/09/20
I’m in the minority here, but I didn’t love the series. It got somewhat more interesting around EP4 so I kept listening, but it never achieved the level of depth I had anticipated, based on the reviews I kept reading in various places. I’ve gained no new insight into Dolly herself, or into her...Read full review »

I’ve heard about this podcast for a while now but resisted listening to it. I’m so glad I finally gave it some attention. Interesting, clever, thoughtful and a fabulous enriching surprise. Am telling all my friends.

Listening to this podcast is the best thing I’ve done during the pandemic lockdowns. LOVE IT!
hanginaround via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/20
This was an AMAZING podcast. I had never heard of Dolly Parton before this podcast, but as soon as all of this stuff is over and Dolly has concerts again, I will buy a ticket for myself!!!! Dolly Parton is amazing— God bless her.
wiripi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/20
I could not get enough of these. I laughed, I cried and just loved learning more about Dolly Parton's music and impact. I agree with her sister that she should use her voice to speak out and get a political. The very fabric of our country needs voices of positivity as well as more love and...Read full review »
jenjenmogo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/05/20
I LOOOOOVE this podcast!! I don’t agree with the criticism that Dolly doesn’t speak up. Everything she does speaks! It speaks of kindness, forgiveness, hardwork, humility, loyalty, thoughtfulness, respect etc etc. tithe best way to speak is with your actions and that is what she does. We...Read full review »
Termo48 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/02/20
There were many really interesting explorations in this podcast, foremost being of Dolly herself. Also, taking a respectful and serious look into Appalachia culture and history was one of my favorite aspects of the podcast, something I hadn’t encountered before. This made me appreciate Appalachia...Read full review »

Who knew there was so much to Dolly? Oh wait, everyone but me :)
Jen wikki via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/30/20
Didn’t want to give you any stars. You made this way to political! Just because you are a liberal Democrat that wants to turn this country into a socialist country, you tried to push Dolly into telling her political beliefs. I loved it until that. I will never listen to a podcast by you again.
cant findonenotused via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/30/20
This beautifully produced show is a music lesson, history lesson, and spiritual guide from a woman of grit, talent, passion and grace. I sang “working 9 to 5” on family car trips through the Australian outback. It’s a pleasure to discover new songs as well as the life of their writer.
Inferstudio via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/29/20
With all “life” happening with 2020, the grace and brilliance of Dolly is a clear drink of water. Thank you for such a fantastic story! Love you Miss Dolly. I hope to see you sing someday!

This podcast proves it. Dolly is the best.
MysteriousMrM via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/23/20
For Dolly Parton and her story, I unapologetically award an enthusiastic five stars. There is much more depth to her story that I did not know, and that part of the podcast is incredibly informative and educational. For the production value and thinly-veiled motives, I offer less than one star....Read full review »

Awesome business woman - tough and strong, brilliant songwriter, gifted singer, quick and witty, smart, great entertainer, heart of gold, giving - a major supporter of charities, Dolly is a blessing to the world.
deaux via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/19/20
A fascinating biography and an inspiring message. Dolly Parton does the job of a million to bring people together at a time when people are being encouraged to turn on each other. If only we could all be like her, this world would be a wonderful place.
