Featuring exceptional guests including Sia, Elle King, Mavis Staples, Miranda Lambert, Willa Amai, Rhonda Vincent, Alison Krauss, Macy Gray, and Dorothy, as well as cameos by Dumplin’ stars Danielle MacDonald and Jennifer Aniston, the project was produced by Grammy nominee Linda Perry.
Dumplin’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be released November 30th via Sony Music Nashville/Dolly Records. Fans who pre-order the album will instantly receive “Girl In The Movies,” a song which is creating awards season chatter and has already garnered a nomination for Best Original Song from a Feature Film by the Hollywood Music In Media Awards. The first release from the album – “Here I Am” featuring Sia – hit No.1 on iTunes Country Songs and Top 10 all-genre upon its release last month.
Parton recently visited with national radio outlets including SiriusXM The Highway with Storme Warren, America’s Morning Show with Ty, Kelly & Chuck and The Bobby Bones Show to talk about working on the music for the film.
