Recently home in Nashville for the CMA Music Fest, entertainer and author Stella Parton spoke with reporters about her inspirational memoir, Tell It Sister, Tell It, which chronicles pieces of her life and musical journey.
But cameras were rolling long before June's festivities, in fact, those that have seen Stella at shows, book signings or just out and about in recent months may have noticed a camera crew shadowing her every move -- all for a new documentary about Stella being filmed by Carter Media, Inc. and slated for release later this year. Big screen, here she comes!
This documentary will look at her life and musical journey through concert footage, behind the scenes shots, and in-depth interviews with Stella and those that know her best. While Stella has shared much of herself with family, friends and fans over the years, she has always kept a portion of her life very private, and only recently with the release of Tell It Sister, Tell It has she shared many of her extremely personal struggles and triumphs. She comments, "It was time to share my stories, not only for my own healing, but to possibly help someone that may be struggling now."
Throughout her career, Stella has worked tirelessly to help abused women and children, particularly in Appalachia where she grew up, but that battle for her has been even more personal than most realized. Although still painful at times, Stella is determined to reach out and help those in need.
Stella's book signings continue throughout the Southeast this summer and as always, she will donate a portion of the proceeds to local domestic violence shelters. The audio version of Tell It Sister, Tell It will be released later this year. If you think the book was emotional, wait until you hear Stella tell it! Tell it sister, tell it!
Do you want to hear her Tell It?
