I listened to first episode and learned more about the host than Dolly. Just saying.

I never gave Dolly Parton much thought as a musician but today a new fan was born! I see an obsession coming on.. Jad great as always

I love this podcasts but it’s just I think if your a kid like me I’m 9 and I just find the adults saying bad words and inappropriate jokes Rude they should think about what if kids like Dolly? And the host Should not talk about politics in this time because some people are having a hard time with...Read full review »

This is one of the best podcasts ever.

I was already a fan of Dolly but this made me appreciate and understand her so much more. This podcast does an excellent job at highlighting the fact that she is a true once-in-a-lifetime talent. The production is seamless and tells Dolly’s life story beautifully. It was a joy to hear the stories...Read full review »

In complying with the “no travel” recommendation this Christmas, I spent the day at home alone, connected with family and friends by phone and zoom. But fortunately I decided to listen this podcast … I listened to all 9 segments on Christmas Day! … and I have to say THANK YOU to Dolly, and the...Read full review »

Episodes 1 and 2 had me all excited for an excellent series, but the podcast wandered around too much after that. Skip the episode about “Jolene” if you don’t want that beautiful, haunting song ruined for you forever. I realize the title is “Dolly Parton’s America,” not “All About Dolly Parton,”...Read full review »

I was a neighbor to Dolly some years ago and went from a fan of her work to a true admirer of the person of light that she is. Shine on Dolly, shine on!

I have always loved Dolly, but this made my love so much stronger. Learning that Nelson Mandela was a Dolly fan made this whole podcast worth it.

This podcast is exactly what I needed to listen to on my walks during the pandemic. It’s an in-depth look at Dolly’s life and legacy. I enjoyed every episode. Thank you to all the folks who created this podcast.

I was not aware how rich Dolly’s life is. Her dedication to song writing, persistence, and belief on her talents are an inspiration to all of us.

Such an amazing podcast series about Dolly. I always was a big fan, but I didn’t know this much about her, so thank you so much!
lawyerlibby via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/06/20
I subscribe to 500ish podcasts. This is my favorite documentary! I am originally from East Tennessee where we already know and love Dolly Parton. Her donation to families affected by the Smoky Mountain Fire is a testament to her generosity. On a personal level, My children have benefited from...Read full review »
RavenousMagpieCrow via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/06/20
This episode made me sad. There are discrimination laws against everything related to someone’s inherit qualities (race, color, ethnicity, and even foreign accents). But, for some ungodly reason, the South is fair game for any and all insults. I’m a 1st generation Californian, and all my...Read full review »

AdaOJ via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/03/20
Really fascinating podcast but I will say that I did not like the Jolene episode at all. It seemed like the hosts and the scholars they spoke to were searching to find a far fetched meaning behind the song. It was bizarre and out of left field. The other episodes were really interesting. The...Read full review »

The reporter makes the podcast flow and makes it easy and fun to listen to. Keep it up!!

I love this podcast. I am listening to it for the second time because I wanted to share it with my husband. Depth and width, humor, pathos, wit — brilliant!
Dogismycopilot via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/29/20
Well balanced, interesting production... I didn’t care for the creators and some people interviewed casting their life perspective “onto” Dolly so much so that when proven incorrect their own narrative became the subject... annoying. But, keeping that in mind, recommendable
breaktime via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/24/20
Great hearing from Dolly, but gotta tell you that trying to force 3rd wave feminist ideology, pop homoeroticism interpretation and political brow beating then insist that this is what Dolly REALLY means is utterly worthless and enormously arrogant and tacky millennialism at it’s worst. You get 4...Read full review »

This is the first time I’m writing a review of a podcast. Just couldn’t not do it. Each episode is a whole new universe of revelations, so thought-provoking, surprising, revealing. I loved Dolly before but this just brings everything to a whole new level.
Kristina Mal via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 11/21/20
I’m so sad for the folks writing reviews and missing the point of this podcast. This podcast is about the America that loves Dolly Parton and how we’re all connected. And not just by Dolly. She’s a shining example of how we’re connected. She transcends the problems and fighting. She shows us the...Read full review »
Frank E. Pooh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/20/20
I’ve always loved Dolly and was looking forward to hearing more about her background. This podcast went off the rails quickly and into a fiery crash with each episode. The podcaster infused too much of himself (idk who he even is) and his political bias into the podcast. I wanted to hear about...Read full review »
chickadee_blondie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/18/20
Dolly is an iconic, interesting class act. The program should have been tightened up and reduced to fewer episodes to focus on Dolly’s story. There were too many tangents focused on the host (why do I care?) and then grilling Dolly on politics. We get it, you’re in the media so you have to be...Read full review »
stalemate standstill via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/17/20
Any Dolly fan would enjoy the first few episodes as Jad describes Dolly’s hardships starting off as a struggling entertainer. Every now and then he mentions some facts and then plays part of interviews he’s had with her to verify the fact, letting her add a few more details sometimes. It really...Read full review »

Thank you for this podcasts and the insight of Dolly history as well as the history of Appalachia, the south, and country music. I learned so much and related a lot to Dolly as someone from a small rural town/humble beginnings with big artistic dreams and a big heart. I love Dolly with all her...Read full review »

I had never listened to Dolly Parton in my life. After listening to these episodes I wrote some songs inspired by dolly. I DONT WRITE Songs! It’s not what I do but I had to let it out. I think we all have some songs trapped inside of us. She’s truly an inspiration and she is the best role model...Read full review »

Not hosted by Dolly. Loved hearing from Dolly and her grandson to actually learn about their perspective. You would be much better off watching the PBS country music special from early in 2020.
clcurtis56 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/08/20
Not being from US, I didn't know much about Dolly, but with all the positive recommendations decided to give it a listen. Was an awesome journey not just into US culture but global culture. And all packaged together in a very engaging and touching way. Highly recommended to... Anyone!Read full review »

Great picture on America and St Dolly. I would love to see an update with her BLM statements. I think it may have been her moment. She’s great.
winsome_lawyer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/06/20
Unfortunately for me, I thought this was a podcast where Dolly sat at the helm and had guests etc. She barely appears compared to how much you have to listen to from others.
podcastjunkie64 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/20
Great podcast. A joy to learn more about Dolly Parton. She’s a national treasure.
Shabu82 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/03/20
I had never really listened to Dolly Parton, and wasn’t at all inspired to listen to this podcast, but you don’t have to even know who she is to appreciate this podcast. Her style and perspective are so heartening in a time when everything else seems so grim.
sactown33qwerty via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/03/20
Thank you thank you thank you You have given us a treasure - I will listen again and share and I can’t believe a podcast impact so positively. The work of you two, your guests, your dad and Dolly’s generosity was staggering.
Emma B S via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/02/20
I’m about halfway through and I am so moved by every episode. Maybe because I grew up in a rural area? Maybe because I enjoy country music? Maybe because I live in a city now and miss home? Maybe because I’m a woman trying to pursue her dreams ... or probably just because I’m a human. This...Read full review »

But this guy went way out into the deep end practically insinuated she’s a racist. With an obvious preconceived biased agenda. He kept trying to get her to speak out politically which she has repeatedly stated for years she does not get involved. She has fans of every walk of life and doesn’t...Read full review »

My wife and I are just now on a road trip to Sevierville, TN. It is fitting that our soundtrack is this wonderful podcast.

I’ve fallen in love with the spirit of dolly, and I hope to be I’ve like her as I grow older... this podcast is very well done, takes you on such a journey!
KatyKfromLA via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/20/20
So well done. Very entertains and informative. I am 100% a Dolly stan now. Going to start saving to visit Dollyworld very soon!! Loved it
CatieL14 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/15/20
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.
Slcsc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/12/20
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.
LPM Canada via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/11/20
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. 😍😍😍
Falonleigh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/30/20
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 »
