In advance of the launch of her upcoming album Blue Smoke, Dolly Parton is scheduled to appear on QVC for a special performance live from Nashville Sunday, April 27 at 7 PM (ET). During the “Dolly Parton Q Sessions Live from Nashville – featuring ‘Blue Smoke’” broadcast, Parton will perform songs from her latest album, as well as a few of her greatest hits.
Fans will also have the opportunity to order Blue Smoke, which will be bundled with a bonus CD compiled especially for QVC, Dolly Parton Live.
“Dolly Parton is one of the most celebrated female country performers of all time,” said Ken O’Brien, vice president of merchandising at QVC. “It is an honor to offer our customers a front row seat to one of her performances and the opportunity to purchase Dolly’s highly-anticipated new album before street date.”
Containing a collection of 12 bluegrass and country songs, Blue Smoke is Parton’s 42nd studio album and first release since 2009. Featuring duets with country music legends such as Willie Nelson and Kenny Rogers, Blue Smoke is a reflection of Parton’s wide-ranging musical styles and influences.
The QVC broadcast will allow viewers to hear new singles including “Blue Smoke,” “Home” and “Banks of the Ohio,” as well as fan favorites including “Jolene” and “I Will Always Love You.”
“I’ve always been passionate about performing in front of my fans,” said Parton. “To be able to unveil my new album on QVC and have my music broadcast live to more than 100 million homes across the U.S. is an exciting opportunity.”
The two CD set containing Blue Smoke and Dolly Parton Live will be available beginning April 24 through QVC.com, the QVC apps or by calling 1.800.345.1515, while supplies last.
