CMT is taking fans behind the scenes of the making of Dolly Parton's newest project, the soundtrack to the movie Dumplin'. The one-hour special, called Dolly & Friends: Making of a Soundtrack, premieres on CMT on Thursday (November 29th) at 9 p.m. ET/PT. It features the legendary singer in the recording studio with famed producer Linda Perry and recording with artists Alison Krauss, Elle King, Macy Gray, Miranda Lambert, Mavis Staples and Rhonda Vincent.
Dolly said, “I’m excited that folks will be able to see some of the wonderful moments Linda Perry, the amazing vocalists and I shared together behind the scenes of the Dumplin’ soundtrack. Singing with all these female artists was a joy and an honor, and, Linda and I, even though we are so different, we’re almost totally alike on a creative level – we all worked really well together.”
Dolly recorded new collaborations of some of her most popular songs in addition to six original compositions which she co-wrote with Linda Perry. The songs are included on the soundtrack to the upcoming Netflix film, Dumplin’, starring Jennifer Aniston and Danielle Macdonald.
