    Los Angeles, New York and Chicago have all been named as warm-up cities for Dolly Parton's "Backwoods Barbie World Tour," an extensive trek that will keep the country legend busy throughout the upcoming year. While many rounds of dates are still on the way, Parton has announced her initial U.S. run, as well as a number of European stops starting this June in Sweden.

    Backwoods Barbie is Parton's first pop CD since 1991's Eagle When She Flies full-length. The album's first single, "Better Get To Livin'," is currently No. 10 on CMT's "Top 20 Countdown" thanks to a video featuring the popular comedian Amy Sedaris.
