Today, March 4, the inimitable Dolly Parton adds to her ever-growing legacy of music with Run, Rose, Run, a new record that marks her 48th studio album to date. It’s also a collaboration with celebrated novelist James Patterson, with whom Dolly co-wrote the book Run Rose Run (which is also out now).

The 12 songs were inspired by the novel’s storyline and features country and bluegrass artists Joe Nichols, Rhonda Vincent, The Issacs, and Dailey & Vincent.

Dolly, who by the way is finally up for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame enshrinement in the Class of 2022, previewed the record previously with “Big Dreams and Faded Jeans,” an anthem for anybody who’s ever hitched a ride to Nashville with a songbook and fantasies of stardom:

From America’s most beloved superstar and its greatest storyteller—a thriller about a young singer-songwriter on the rise and on the run, and determined to do whatever it takes to survive.

Every song tells a story.

She’s a star on the rise, singing about the hard life behind her.

She’s also on the run. Find a future, lose a past.

Nashville is where she’s come to claim her destiny. It’s also where the darkness she’s fled might find her. And destroy her.

Run, Rose, Run is a novel glittering with danger and desire—a story that only America’s #1 beloved entertainer and its #1 bestselling author could have created.
