Dolly Parton will release Better Day on June 28th. Her much-anticipated album of all-new studio material (there are 12 songs) will be released on her own Dolly Records distributed through Warner Music Nashville. To coincide with the album's release, Miss Parton will launch a world tour bringing her throughout America and then onto the UK and Europe in August and September, then Australia in November in support of the new album.
First up, the iconic singer, songwriter, musician, actress and philanthropist will unveil the album's soaring first single "Together You & I" with a live performance now airing Friday, May 27th on The Ellen DeGeneres Show as the song simultaneously arrives at radio. The song's video--shot this week in Nashville by director Trey Fanjoy--will debut shortly thereafter.
Parton's world tour launches July 17th in Knoxville in her home state of Tennessee and will be highlighted by two shows (July 22nd and 23rd) at the historic Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The tour moves overseas starting August 20th.
