The eight-episode Netflix original series will tell the stories of eight of Dolly’s songs—including “Jolene,” “Two Doors Down,” “Sugar Hill” and more—with a different theme and cast for each episode. From rom-com to western, each episode was filmed at Dollywood and stars a number of actors, including Dolly, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Julianne Hough, Delta Burke, Andy Mientus, Ben Lawson, Jessica Collins, Sarah Shahi, Holly Taylor, Willa Fitzgerald and more.

For the red carpet event at Dollywood, Dolly invited Heartstrings’ actors and actresses, 500 fans and 150 Dollywood employees to watch a sneak peek of one of the episodes at the park’s Showstreet Palace Theater.

Heartstrings will premiere on Netflix on Nov. 22.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
