Dolly Parton is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, actress, author, businesswoman, and humanitarian, known primarily for her work in country music.
This is a BIG one!!! Straight out of Nashville, the one and only Country ICON Dolly Parton joins us on Table Manners.We chatted to Dolly - dressed head to toe in festive gear - back in October, before her beautiful book Storyteller had reached these shores and before we knew she had potentially helped cure covid with her generous donation to help fund a covid vaccine. As well as telling us all about cosying up with Michael Buble on her new christmas record ‘A Holly Dolly Christmas’ she talks to us about her upbringing in the mountains, being one of 12 children, her speciality of Chicken and Dumplings, that Glastonbury show and the very first time she heard Whitney Houston sing her song on the radio. This was a total pleasure and a real pinch yourself moment (hence my over talking).Hope you enjoy listening to this as much as we enjoyed chatting to everyone's favourite storyteller.

This episode is proof that dreams do come true! I get to talk to Dolly Parton about love, empathy, and the power of truth-telling. We talk about everything from her new book, Dolly Parton, Songteller: My Life in Lyrics and songwriting, to the challenges of leading organizations and Burt Reynolds. It's amazing to me how Dolly's songwriting and storytelling seems to be driven by a deep calling to turn toward pain and heartbreak so she can shine a light for all of us to find our way.
Dolly Parton grew up in a small cabin in Tennessee with no running water or electricity, but she climbed her way to the top of the music world and American culture over the course of an iconic career. In this week’s “Sunday Sitdown,” Willie Geist gets together with Dolly to talk about her latest Christmas album, her new Netflix film and her upcoming book about the stories behind her greatest hits.
I find absolutely every one of my guests on LOVE SOMEONE with Delilah a delight to speak with, but on today's episode, you'll have to excuse the excited squealing! She's been a constant in my life for my ENTIRE life, beloved by my grandparents, parents, myself and siblings, as well as my children and grandchildren. She's defied circumstances, stereotypes, gender bias... and age! I'd fill notebooks if I were to try to list all of her professional accomplishments, so I won't, because in reality, she is so well known, and so well loved, this guest really needs no introduction. Ms. Dolly Parton is my guest today, here to talk about life, how she's kept busy during COVID, how she handles stress and negativity (hint, she doesn't - she prays and gives it to GOD) and how her mission in life is to spread joy, and love, and music! We'll talk about her new holiday album, "A Holly Dolly Christmas", all the guests collaborations, and so so so much more! Come on in! ~ Delilah Learn more about your ad-choices at
