UNLIKELY ANGEL The Songs of Dolly Parton

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Janet Metzger

Biography & Memoir • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Dolly Parton jokes about being a prisoner of the “cartoon character” stage persona she herself created, but she is dead serious when it comes to her music. This audiobook reveals the songwriting skill and dedication of one of the nation’s most revered country and pop musicians. Narrator Janet Metzger tells how Parton went from dirt-poor Appalachian to self-made musical legend. Metzger’s skillful performance, delivered with a delightful Southern drawl when quoting Parton, paints a respectful picture of the first lady of country music, who fought for equality in a male-dominated business. The work inspires respect for the woman who has penned more than 3,000 songs, including hits like “I Will Always Love You” and “Jolene," and will send listeners scouring their music collections. M.S.
