Dolly was really excited to announce her "Better Day" World Tour saying,
"I had a great time when we were in Europe on the last ‘Backwoods Barbie’ tour, and I expect to have even more fun on the up and coming 'Better Day' World Tour. I'm really looking forward to this, and I can't wait to see all the fans again. We have a lot fun things for everybody!"
"Together You and I" is the first single from Dolly’s 41st studio album "Better Day." The single was released on May 23, 2011. The song was previously released in 1974 as a duet on the "Porter 'n' Dolly" album with Porter Wagoner. Dolly performed the new version of the song on the "Ellen Degeneres Show" (May 27, 2011) and on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno (July 22, 2011).
Dolly said of the song,
“‘Together You and I’ is one of my favorite love songs that I have written, and I’ve always been a sucker for romance. We all kind of have that fantasy that once you fall in love, it’s going to be forever. I think people still dream of that even when love goes bad.”
The single reached the British singles chart in 2011, peaking at No. 67.
