Dolly-Parton1The first-ever Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® two-disc set, An Evening With… Dolly, has earned a Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) Gold award and today Dolly got to celebrate!  The DVD/CD was RIAA certified just four weeks after its April 2 release date and its debut at #2 on Billboard’s Top DVD Music Videos Chart.

DollyParton_Gold_DR_sm“In true Dolly fashion and always on the cutting edge, Dolly was the first to be Sound Scanned in Cracker Barrel’s exclusive music program, and now their first gold record,” said Dolly’s Manager/President of Dolly Records Danny Nozell.
 
The RIAA gold award marks a first for Cracker Barrel and the first for Dolly Records in the U.S., with previous Gold certifications in Australia and the United Kingdom. 
 
DollyParton_Gold_CB_sm“I’m thrilled that so many fans are listening to my songs and taking a look behind-the-scenes of my European tour,” said Dolly.  “I had a wonderful time performing in London and I think the audience did too.  It’s exciting to be able to share my experiences with Cracker Barrel fans.  And I have to tell you, I’m even more excited that An Evening With… Dolly earned the first Gold in the Cracker Barrel exclusive music program.  That’s just icing on the cake.”

Dolly 2012I love living as close as I do to Dollywood. I’ve been there many times, including opening day and media day. She’s a great lady, with more than a whole bunch of fantastic music – she’s got a really fun theme park, too.

That’s all for tonight. Back soon!
