Dolly plays ‘Aunt Dolly’ on Disney’s ‘Hannah Montana’

Dolly appeared several times between 2006 and 2010 on Miley Cyrus’ hit show “Hannah Montana” as Aunt Dolly, Hannah’s godmother. The character was a Nashville native who lived with her husband, Uncle Pete (who never appeared on camera).

Dolly’s first appearance was in the season one episode “Good Golly Miss Dolly” in 2006. Her last appearance was in the season four episode “Kiss it all Goodbye” in 2010. She also appeared in the season two episode “I Will Always Loathe You.

Dolly said of her role on the show,

“I’m famous now ’cause I’m Hannah Montana’s Aunt Dolly. Little kids just see me in the street and just point — ‘Aunt Dolly!’ or ‘Hi, Aunt Dolly!’ — and it’s just been so cute.”

Dolly co-wrote and performs duet, ‘The Right Time’ with Billy Ray Cyrus (and Morris Tancredi)

Dolly sang and co-wrote the duet “The Right Time” with her friend Billy Ray Cyrus (and Morris Tancredi) on the 2010 debut album “Brother Clyde,” the name taken after Cyrus’ alternative rock band of the same name. Allmusic.com reviewer Thom Jurek said of the track,

“The Right Time” is the first glance toward country, but only because Dolly Parton co-wrote and appears on it. A roots rocker, she rises to the band’s intensity and helps deliver one of the best cuts here.”

Cyrus really got the most from Dolly in their hard-driving collaboration.

“Dolly, she said she wanted to rock… She came to my studio, brought homemade corn, mashed potatoes and a spread of country cooking. We ate, played guitar for an hour then she just kicked ass. She became like Tina Turner. You could tell she really wanted this.”

The album was released on Aug. 10, 2010.

Dolly releases 31st solo album, ‘Slow Dancing With the Moon’

Released in 1993, “Slow Dancing With the Moon” is Dolly’s 31st solo album. She invited several guests to appear on the project including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Pam Tillis, Billy Ray Cyrus, Kathy Mattea, Billy Dean and Tanya Tucker.

Dolly’s longtime friend Mac Davis wrote the title track for the album. She said he felt the title described her well. Dolly said,

“He says it’s the way that he sees me, how I’m always chasing a dream… that I’m the same kid he met so many years ago and my spirit has remained the same.”

Davis also wrote “In the Ghetto” from Dolly’s 1969 album, “My Blue Ridge Mountain Boy.”

“Slow Dancing With the Moon” produced three singles, including “Romeo” with Billy Ray Cyrus. In the music video, Dolly and her friends are enjoying their girls’ night out at a lively dance hall when Romeo appears.

The Certified Platinum album went to No. 4 on the Top Country Albums chart and No. 16 on the Billboard 200 chart. “Romeo” was nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best Country Vocal Collaboration category.
