In Dolly’s role as Shirlee Kenyon she finds herself hosting a successful radio talk show in Chicago. "Dr. Shirlee" delivers advice to callers using what Dolly calls "Dollyized" sayings.
The title song, "Straight Talk" captures Dr. Shrilee’s approach to answering caller’s questions. She says,
“Just tell me how you really feel, Be on the up and up, With questions I can understand, For answers you can trust.”
"Light of a Clear Blue Morning" first appeared on Dolly’s 1977 album "New Harvest… First Gathering."
The "Straight Talk" soundtrack was released in March of 1992 and reached number 22 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.
