Dolly releases 40th solo album, ‘Backwoods Barbie’
On Feb. 26, 2008, Dolly released her 40th studio album “Backwoods Barbie.” It was the first album released on her newly created Dolly Records label and features nine original songs and four by other artists including covers of popular songs by Smokey Robinson’s “The Tracks of My Tears” and Fine Young Cannibals’ “She Drives Me Crazy.”
The album marked Dolly’s return to mainstream country music after 17 years, and it debuted at No. 2 on the country album charts. Dolly said,
“They think I’m over the hill… but I don’t believe that. My music is as young today as it was ever. And I always say, ‘I may be as old as yesterday, but I’m as young as tomorrow, too!’”
The successful album sold more than 274,000 units and reached No. 17 on the Billboard album chart.
