"'Heartsongs' was a wonderful discovery I found at a souvenir shop at Dollywood in Pidgeon Forge, Tennessee. It's a LIVE album done on the Dollywood grounds at The Pines theater. It's a real treat to see one of Dolly Parton's LIVE performances and if you're ever fortunate please do so. Dolly can really put on a fabulous show. Not all the flash of any other concerts you go to. Dolly is down home flair and makes you feel like you never left home. This album is a collections of Dolly's show that stems from many of her past works in TV, radio and her roots.
Her guests are the Irish band, Altan who accompanies her on "Barbara Allen." Some of the musicals pieces are witty and funny. And, others are a blend of old-timey folk tunes, a little of the blues and traditional spirituals like, "What a Friend We Have in Jesus," "Hold Fast to the Right." and "Brave Little Soldier." Some of her songs reflect the closeness and love of family like, "To Daddy" and her childhood memories, "Coat of Many Colors" and "Smoky Mountain Memories." Dolly's electic mixture of songs will keep you entertained every minute. It will bring back memories of her musical endevours on the Porter Waggoner show. Remember her promoting products like Cas Walker store and Black Draught. Well, like she said much as she hated that Black Draught commerical she had to make a living. For some of you yun'uns who don't know what Black Draught is-it's a laxative! :). You'll fall all over yourself silly when you listen to the hiliarious, poking fun of "PMS Blues." If you're a Dolly Parton fan or just love old time good entertainment I'd recommend this. It's a trip down memory lane."

"This is a live album of a concert Dolly performed at Dollywood in 1994. There's a great mixture of old hits, new material, and other songs. There's quite a few guests all over the concert including Alison Krauss, Rhonda Vincent, Darrin Vincent, Suzanne Cox, Altan, Carl Jackson, and more. She sings classics like "My Tennessee Mountain Home", "My Blue Tears", "Coat Of Many Colors", "Smoky Mountain Memories", "To Daddy", and more. There's some great songs like "I'm Thinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes", "Barbara Allen", "Night Train To Memphis", "Applejack", "Wayfaring Stranger", etc. "Heartsong" is a great new song, but the closing "PMS Blues" steals the show, it's hilarious! Dolly puts on a great show. It's very personal, as she shares stories about growing up and her family, talking to the audience between most songs. Overall a treat to listen to, and worth its place in any Dolly collection."
