This week the legendary musician, songwriter, and philanthropist Dolly Parton announced that this summer she will kick off a full US tour and release a double album, Pure & Simple with Dolly’s Biggest Hits.

The tour will be her most ambitious in 25 years, with dates in cities across the country and will feature tracks from Pure & Simple, along with classics throughout her catalog. Full details have yet to be announced, but keep your eye on her website for the full scoop. As always, tickets are expected to sell out quickly once they go on sale.
