Dolly Parton Recorded A Secret Song That is Locked Away For 30 Years
January 11, 2021
Dolly Parton has written and recorded a song but we won’t get to hear it until 2045! The song is on a CD which is locked away at her Dollywood theme park with strict instructions not to open it for 30 years. Dolly wrote the song in 2015 when she opened the DreamMore Resort at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
She wrote about the mystery tune in her new book Songteller: My Life in Lyrics saying, “‘That’s like burying one of my kids, putting it on ice or something, and I won’t be around to see it brought back to life. It’s just burning me up inside that I have to leave it there.”
Dolly said the idea to do this wasn’t hers. She wrote, “It’s kind of weird or strange that they would ask me to write this mystery song. I don’t know if I want to live to be 100 or not. But you never know. I might and if I do, I’m going to be at that opening.”
