Dolly Parton to Launch 10-Week “Goodnight With Dolly” Book-Reading Video Series on April 2

Dolly Parton will launch her 10-week Goodnight With Dolly book-reading video series via YouTube on April 2.

Goodnight with Dolly features the country music icon reading select books from her Imagination Library. Dolly will kick off the weekly series on April 2 by reading “The Little Engine That Could.”

Dolly hopes the new series will provide comfort and reassurance to kids and families during the shelter-in-place mandates. Since its beginning in 1996 in Dolly’s hometown of Sevierville, Tenn., the Imagination Library has expanded into four countries serving more than 1 million children by providing a brand-new, age-appropriate book each month.

Tune in to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library via YouTube at 6 p.m. CT on April 2.

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
