Dolly Parton’s New Novel
In addition to her new record, Dolly Parton is releasing her first novel. Run, Rose, Run is about a woman who travels to Nashville with dreams of becoming a star. The singer-songwriter uses her past pain to write meaningful songs that take her career to the next level. When her secrets begin to haunt her, things take an unexpected turn.
The novel will hit bookshelves on March 7, 2022, just three days after Parton’s record drops. The singer is so excited to share the book with fans. She also gives credit to her cowriter and famous author, James Patterson.
“I cannot be more excited about the release of my very first novel ‘Run, Rose, Run’ with the great James Patterson,” she says in a statement. “I also have a new CD to go along with the book. All new songs written based on the characters and situations in the book. I hope you enjoy the book and the songs as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it together.”
James Patterson says a few kind words about his co-writer as well.
“It’s been an honor—and a hell of a lot of fun—to work with the inimitable Dolly Parton, whom I’ve long admired for her music, her storytelling, and her enormous generosity,” he says. “It’s a really unique experience that I know readers (and listeners) will love.”
