Dolly Parton Plans New Single, World Tour

Dolly Parton will release her new single, “Together You & I,” on May 26, the same day she will perform it on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Parton will also shoot a video for the single, a track to be included on Better Day, an album of all-new material set for a summer release. In addition, Parton will launch her world tour on July 17 at Thompson Boling Arena in Knoxville, Tenn., near her hometown of Sevierville, Tenn. The tour will also visit the U.K., Denmark, Sweden and Australia. “I wanted to do an album that would be very uplifting and positive, as well as inspirational,” Parton said. “Times are hard all over. I think people need to feel better, and I thought Better Day was a perfect title because it says ’hope.'”
