In a few short weeks, country music legend Dolly Parton will launch her largest North American tour in 25 years, making an early stop locally at the Filene Center at Wolf Trap on Wednesday, June 8, 2016.
Dolly’s Pure & Simple Tour, which includes a total of 16 dates, coincides with her summertime release of a double-disc album Pure & Simple with Dolly’s Biggest Hits. The collection features her most popular singles as well as a few new songs. During the tour, she will perform the new songs as well as old favorites, some of which have not been heard live for many years.

Dolly has been quite busy lately with a very well-received performance at the ACM Awards in early April, followed by the DVD release of her successful TV movie, “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” on May 3. The movie became the most-watched movie on network television in three years with 15.8 million viewers, sparking demand for the DVD release.
Of course, Dolly has received quite a few other accolades in her career, including induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame, winning seven Grammys, and receiving many other honors for her hit songs, including “Jolene,” “9 to 5,” and “I Will Always Love You,” making her the most honored female country music artist of all time.
