  • ♪ ♪ ♪ >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY,

  • WE'RE BACK WITH JUST SUPERSTAR OF EVERY KIND, DOLLY PARTON.

  • IN MAY, YOU RELEASED A SONG ABOUT THE PANDEMIC WHICH IS

  • CALLED, "WHEN LIFE IS GOOD AGAIN."

  • WHAT KIND OF SONG DO YOU THINK THE WORLD NEEDS RIGHT NOW IN

  • THESE-- IN THESE TROUBLED TIMES?

  • >> WELL, I THINK THEY NEED-- I THINK THEY NEED MORE OF THAT

  • KIND OF STUFF.

  • AND I REALLY FELT LED TO WRITE THAT.

  • AND I'VE WRITTEN SOME OTHER SONGS ALONG THOSE LINES ABOUT

  • THE PANDEMIC AND MAYBE, YOU KNOW, I'M GOING TO PUT SOMETHING

  • ELSE OUT.

  • I HAVE ALL THIS CHRISTMAS STUFF AND EVERYTHING GOING NOW.

  • BUT I DO HAVE SOME OTHER THINGS WRITTEN ABOUT THIS TIME GOING

  • ON.

  • SO I JUST REALLY FELT LIKE I SHOULD WRITE SOMETHING, AND THAT

  • ONE HAS SOME REALLY GOOD LINES THAT I THINK EVERYBODY STARTED

  • LOOKING AT THEMSELVES A LITTLE DEEPER THAN THEY HAD BEFORE.

  • WHEN IT SAYS, "WHEN LIFE IS GOOD AGAIN, I'LL BE A BETTER FRIEND,

  • A BETTER PERSON WHEN LIFE IS GOOD AGAIN, I'LL

  • OPEN UP MY HEART AND LET THE WHOLE WORLD IN WHEN LIFE IS GOOD

  • AGAIN, AND LAUGH AND DANCE AND SING WITH OUR FRIENDS," AND THAT

  • SORT OF THING.

  • IT WAS AN UPLIFTING THING THAT LET'S PEOPLE KNOW IT'S GOING TO

  • BE ALL RIGHT.

  • WHEN LIFE IS GOOD AGAIN WE'LL DO MORE FUN STUFF.

  • AND I HOPE WE WILL.

  • I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS YEAR TO BE OVER, CAN YOU.

  • >> Stephen: NO, I CAN'T.

  • >> CRAZY, CRAZY.

  • >> Stephen: I SAID I WANT A FAST-FORWARD BUTTON, AND THAT

  • WILL BE NICE.

  • EVERYBODY HAS THEIR FAVORITE DOLLY PARTON SONGS.

  • I GOT TO SING MINE WITH YOU, "BUTTERFLY."

  • WHAT ARE YOUR-- AND THIS WILL BE DEFINITIVE SO I WANT YOU TO GIVE

  • IT SOME THOUGHT, DOLLY PARTON-- WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE DOLLY

  • PARTON SONGS?

  • >> WELL, MY VERY FAVORITE SONG FROM A VERY PERSONAL LEVEL IS

  • "THE CODE OF MANY COLORS."

  • IT'S KIND OF A SIGNATURE SONG OF MINE.

  • AND IT'S MORE THAN ABOUT THE LITTLE COAT.

  • IT'S ABOUT MY MOM, IT'S ABOUT MY FAMILY.

  • IT'S ABOUT ACCEPTANCE AND IT'S ABOUT TOLERANCE, AND IT EVEN

  • SPEAKS TO BULLYING, HOW THE KIDS MADE FUN OF ME AT SCHOOL.

  • THEY TEACH IT IN SOME OF THE GRAMMAR SCHOOLS AROUND IN

  • TENNESSEE.

  • AND THEY USE THAT LITTLE SONG ABOUT NOT MAKING FUN OF PEOPLE,

  • THAT IT'S OKAY TO BE DIFFERENT.

  • WE ARE WHO WE ARE AND WE NEED TO ACCEPT AND LOVE EACH OTHER.

  • THAT ONE, CERTAINLY, I LOVE BECAUSE OF MY MOM, AND IT'S A

  • TRUE STORY, AND I HAVE TREASURED MEMORIES OF THAT.

  • AND AS FAR AS A SINGER/SONGWRITER, ALL SINGERS

  • LOVE TO HAVE A SONG THAT YOU CAN SING TENDER, AND THEN YOU CAN GO

  • BIG IF YOU WANT TO.

  • YOU CAN SING LOUD OR SHOW HOW MUCH VOLUME YOU KNOW YOU HAVE,

  • AND HOW MUCH RANGE AND ALL.

  • SO I WOULD THINK THAT THE "I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU" SONG IS

  • REALLY GOOD FOR THAT.

  • BECAUSE I CAN SING IT LITTLE OR I CAN SING IT BIG.

  • AND SO NOT JUST BECAUSE I WROTE THEM, BUT THAT ONE IS REAL

  • SPECIAL.

  • BUT I LIKE SONGS THAT I'VE RECORDED IN ALBUMS THAT A LOT OF

  • PEOPLE HAVE NEVER HEARD.

  • THERE'S A SONG CALLED "DOWN INTEREST DOVER" AND A LOT OF

  • PEOPLE LOVE IT.

  • IT'S ABOUT A GIRL THAT GOT PREGNANT AND SHE HAD TO LEAVE

  • HOME AND GO OUT AND LIVE ON A FARM WITH AN OLD LADY AND ALL

  • THAT.

  • SO BACK AT THE TIME, WHEN I PUT IT OUT ON A RECORD, THEY

  • WOULDN'T PLAY IT ON THE RADIO.

  • LORD, NOW, YOU CAN HAVE A BABY RIGHT ON TELEVISION.

  • SEATS LIKE-- IT'S ALL DIFFERENT.

  • SO I REALLY LOVE, YOU KNOW, SOME OF MY SONGS LIKE THAT THAT TELL

  • STORIES.

  • AND, OF COURSE, "JOLENE" IS EVERYBODY'S FAVORITE.

  • AD I ENJOY SINGING THAT ONE.

  • MOST OF MY SONGS THEY LOVE THE BEST ARE SONGS THAT NOBODY'S

  • EVER HEARD, SO TO TALK ABOUT THEM THEY WOULDN'T EVEN KNOW

  • WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.

  • BUT I JUST ENJOY A LOT OF STORIES.

  • THAT'S WHY I'M A SONGTELLER.

  • >> Stephen: DOLLY, IT'S SO LOVELY TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

  • THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.

  • >> SEE YOU LATER.

  • >> Stephen: "DOLLY PARTON: SONGTELLER" IS AVAILABLE

  • NOVEMBER 17.

  • IT WOULD MAKE A GREAT CHRISTMAS PRESENT, SO WOULD HER CHRISTMAS

  • ALBUM.

  • DOLLY PARTON, EVERYBODY.

  • >> THEY'RE JUST THE RIGHT SIZE!

  • >> Stephen: EXACTLY.

  • THERE YOU GO.

  • >> I COULD USE THE MONEY!

  • I NEED THE MONEY!

  • >> Stephen: THERE YOU GO.

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH A PERFORMANCE BY TY DOLLA SIGN.

  • BYE, DOLLY.

  • >> BYE!

  • THANK YOU.
