Review: Don Henley and Dolly Parton superb on ‘When I Stop Dreaming’ (Includes first-hand account)

The music video is monochromatic with a timeless, classic country vibe to it. Parton’s vocals are piercing and as captivating as ever, and they compliment Henley’s velvet voice quite well. The steel guitar solo helps elevate it to a higher level. It was directed by Daniel Pearl and released on Capitol Records.

Henley and Parton pay a moving homage to The Louvin Brothers, especially since it is their song. It is a track on his latest country music album, Cass County.

This duet is not new for Parton. Throughout her illustrious career in country music, Parton used to perform “When I Stop Dreaming,” with her late duet partner, Porter Wagoner.

Their song’s music video can be seen on the official Country Music Television (CMT) website, by clicking here.

The Verdict

Overall, Don Henley and Dolly Parton’s newest duet “When I Stop Dreaming” garners an A rating. It will certainly please fans of traditional country and they will send chills down their fans’ spines, as they both prove to be at the top of their game musically.
