Dolly Parton Dishes On 'Dream More'

Legendary country singer's inspiring new book reveals the keys to her success

Growing up dirt poor in the hills of Tennessee, Dolly Parton relied on her dreams to sustain her. "It was a dream that dressed me up when I was ragged, it was a dream that filled me up when I was hungry, and it was a dream that took me out of the Smoky Mountains and put me on top of the world," she says.

So it's fitting that the legendary country singer and composer of more than 3,000 songs has titled her latest book Dream More: Celebrate the Dreamer in You. The 66-year-old Parton talks to host Mike Cuthbert about her long and successful career in music, TV and movies, and about the way her dreams continue to push her forward.
