Dolly Parton, Songteller: My Life in Lyrics ~ Dolly Parton and Robert K Oermann (2020)


Dolly Parton, Songteller is a book that is most enjoyable as an audiobook, as Dolly Parton narrates the book and snippets of each song are included in each chapter.

Following no particular timeline, Parton discusses the very first song she remembers making up that her mother wrote down for her, her various hits, songs that she enjoyed writing that never gained traction, songs she wrote for her various film roles, and songs she wrote that were recorded by others. With a strong spiritual tie, Parton talks about going to her “God-space” when writing songs, how music is second nature to her, and how she learned to play the guitar to help with her songwriting.

Dolly Parton’s bubbly, spiritual and cheerful personality comes through in the audiobook as she talks about her philanthropy, Dollywood, and her friends and family. It is impossible not to be taken in by her Tennessee mountain drawl as she explains her life through the songs that wrote it.
