Dolly Parton: 50 Years At The Opry

Available on SBS On Demand
Filmed in front of a live audience at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry, this special is a celebration of Dolly’s 50 years as a member of the Opry. It features interviews with Dolly, as well as performances of her biggest hits on the Opry stage. In addition, her superstar friends - Dierks Bentley, Emmylou Harris, Chris Janson, Toby Keith, Lady Antebellum, Margo Price, Hank Williams Jnr, and others appear on stage to pay homage to her amazing career. Among the musical highlights of the two-hour special are Islands In The Stream, sung by Lady Antebellum, Price’s version of The Seeker, Janson’s fiery Muleskinner Blues, and Harris’s gorgeous take on To Daddy. But it is Parton’s own performances of her famous songs that deliver the emotional core of the tribute concert, and she sings them in true Dolly fashion, accompanied by self-deprecating humour and heartfelt gratitude.
