"One Of Dolly's Best Album's"

"Beginning in 1993 Dolly Parton suddenly found that she was having a hard time getting radio airplay. She was the last of the old-time Nashville stars who did get airplay, but newer stars started getting heard more on country music radio at the start of the '90's. It had nothing to do with Dolly as an artist: beginning with "Slow Dancing With The Moon" Miss Parton continued releasing top-notch records and her writing continued to excel. However, Columbia, her record label, thought it wisely if Dolly would cut songs on this release featuring some of the newer singers that dominated the airways. People like Billy Ray Cyrus, Tanya Tucker, Pam Tillis, and Billy Dean provided vocals on many of the songs, but still the singles released didn't go anywhere. The album would be Dolly's last blockbuster record, however, selling over a million copies and proving that although Dolly was no longer on the radio she had a distinct fanbase who loved her.
Three singles were released from this collection- "Romeo", "More Where That Came From" (that would be used in a Target commercial in 2008), and "Full Circle". The highlight of "Slow Dancing With The Moon" is Dolly's reworking of the 1960's Jackie DeShannon classic "Put A Little Love in Your Heart" that Dolly debut on the 1992 CMA Awards show."
