article imageDolly Parton back with highest-charting solo album to date

By Markos Papadatos     May 25, 2014 in Music
It has been a great week for country music queen Dolly Parton, thanks to the commercial success of her new album "Blue Smoke."
It debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot Country Albums charts, as well as No. 6 on the Billboard 200 all-genre charts, making it her highest-charting solo album to date.
Ironically enough, she has only visited the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 all-genre charts only once, with the collaborative effort Trio, where she worked with such iconic songstresses as Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt (that CD peaked at No. 6 on May 2, 1987, after it debuted at No. 38 several weeks prior).
"I am glad that people are enjoying the music from my new 'Blue Smoke' album. It feels great to be in the Top 10," Dolly Parton remarked in a press statement. "It's always an honor to know the fans spend their hard-earned money on my music. Thanks everybody!"
Throughout her illustrious career, Parton has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry, as well as the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, where she was inducted in 1999. On the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, she has the record for most No. 1 singles by a female artist, with 25, proving her legendary status in the country genre.
Her latest album garnered a favorable review from Digital Journal, and I was fortunate enough to interview the country sensation herself, which you could read by clicking here.
