It’s pretty cool that Dolly Parton is still going strong after all these years. She’s had hits in quite a few decades over the years and she still sounds and looks great. It’s a treat for country fans that she’s still recording and releasing new music. And her latest one, the title track from an upcoming album, is right on par with her previous material. Check it out.
Blue Smoke – Dolly Parton
Dolly Parton is good at a lot of things. She’s one of the best songwriters in history. She’s one of the best country singers of all time and people recognize her for her business sense too. I think her songwriting might be her greatest gift to all of us. I’m not sure if she wrote this one and it doesn’t really matter. She knows a good melody when she hears one. This song has an incredibly melody and arrangement. It’s catchy and it gets you smiling by the end of the song.
It’s one of those rare songs that that means something to people of different ages. You have the song for adults that connects on a very real way and you have a catchy, fun song that connects with kids. There is something about the clickity clack that will get the kids singing along.
Great song here from Dolly. It’s great to still have her out there releasing new music.
