Dolly Parton Postpones Tour

Monday, February 11, 2008

"But hey, you try wagging these puppies around a while and see if you don't have
back problems. Seriously though, the doctors said I will be good as new in a few
weeks, and I can't wait to get back out there. See you soon, Dolly."
-Dolly Parton 2/11/2008 from her website

Well now, that's certainly a way to say it. It could go down as the country music quote of the year. It certainly got a chuckle out of me.

Her upcoming tour will have to postposed until late April or early May due to a back condition. It will take a bit of time to get the dates re-scheduled I'm sure.

Gladly, her new album "Backwoods Barbie" is on schedule for release on February 26, 2008. I have a feeling it will be very good as she returns to a country album, rather than a bluegrass album like she has delivered in the past years. Just have to wait for now and find out, but if the first single "Better Get To Livin" is any indication, we are in for a treat.
