Dolly Parton has a top ten album with her latest release. “Blue Smoke” is debuting on the Billboard 200 at number six to become her highest charting solo album on the all-genre list. Billboard.com says the country legend’s previous best was 1981’s “9 to 4 and Odd Jobs,” which peaked at number eleven. This is also just the second time Parton has had an album in the top tier of the Billboard 200.
Dolly Parton has another short run of U.S. dates. She has seven shows scheduled through the end of the month, starting with a two-night stand in Tulsa, Oklahoma Thursday and Friday night. The country legend will also make stops in North Carolina, Kentucky, and Tennessee before wrapping up the trek with another pair of Oklahoma shows. She’ll launch the European portion of her “Blue Smoke World Tour” in Liverpool, England next month.
