Dolly Parton celebrated her 77th birthday with the release of “Don’t Make Me Have to Come Down There”

Country music icon Dolly Parton celebrated her birthday with the release of a brand new song that came to her in a dream. Parton said the song, “Don’t Make Me Have to Come Down There,” was spoken to her by God from a mountaintop.

Dolly makes no secret about the importance of her faith in God. She was raised going to church every Sunday where her grandfather, Reverend Jake Owens, was the pastor, and she has held tightly to her beliefs throughout her life. She felt her 77th birthday was the perfect time to release a song that means so much to her and hopes that it will have a positive impact on listeners. She shared,

“I got up, I started writing this song, and over a period of weeks and months I finished it as things would come to me, and I just felt like I should drop it on my birthday. So, I hope you enjoy it.”

Now Available to Stream

In true Dolly fashion, the beloved star said instead of receiving gifts on her birthday, she wanted to give this gift in song. “Don’t Make Me Have to Come Down There” is available worldwide on all streaming platforms.

Listen to “Bets on Us,” Dolly’s new single with acclaimed DJ Trio Cheat Codes, now available to stream.

Dolly Parton collaborated with multi-platinum, global hit-making trio Cheat Codes for a new single, “Bets On Us.” The song, from the album One Night in Nashville, was released on January 6. Dolly shared,

“I love how ‘Bets on Us’ turned out with Cheat Codes. When I heard this song, I felt like I could contribute something special.”

For their highly anticipated country album, the acclaimed DJ trio is elated to have a song with Dolly. Matthew Russell of the trio said,

“Having Dolly on this album is so surreal and a full circle moment for me personally. As someone who grew up in the Midwest, my family and I would go to her (Stampede) event in the Great Smoky Mountains. Her larger than life photos were everywhere and now having a song with one of the biggest music legends of all time, and especially in the country space, is incredible.”

Dolly Bets on Another Dance Hit

“Bets on Us” is not Dolly’s first time working with DJs who are in the Dance/ EDM space. Dolly’s previous forays into the EDM/Dance world have all been successful. Her track record of club hits includes 2021’s “Jolene (Destructo Remix),” 2019’s #1 Gold-certified hit “Faith” featuring Galantis & Mr. Probz, 1997’s top 5 “Peace Train” remix, 1983’s extended play of her hit single “Potential New Boyfriend,” and the disco-charged 1978 double-sided long-play picture disc of “Baby I’m Burnin/I Wanna Fall In Love.”

One Night in Nashville is an entirely new endeavor for the genre-bending trio, which has put out many records in the electronic dance, pop and alt rock genres. In addition to the collaboration with Dolly, the album features singles with an eclectic mix of artists and songwriters, including the current Top 40 radio hit “I Remember” featuring Russell Dickerson, “One Night Left” with MacKenzie Porter, “Lose You” featuring Jimmie Allen, “How Do You Love” featuring Lee Brice & Lindsay Ell and “Never Love You Again” featuring Little Big Town & Bryn Christopher.

Penguin Young Readers to publish Dolly Parton’s Billy the Kid Makes it Big, illustrated by MacKenzie Haley, on April 25, 2023

Dolly Parton will publish a new picture book about her god-dog, Billy the Kid, releasing on April 25, 2023 with Penguin Workshop, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers. Aimed at readers ages 4-7, Dolly Parton’s Billy the Kid Makes it Big features illustrations by MacKenzie Haley and tells the story of Billy the Kid, a dog who loves barking to the beat of country music and sets out to make it big as a country music star in Nashville. But when he encounters some bullies at the Battle of the Bow-wows, he must call on his favorite songs, and the help of some new friends, to regain his self-confidence and be the star he always knew he could be.

“I am so proud to bring this book and the message it conveys to life,” Dolly shared. “Years back I wrote a song ‘Makin’ Fun Ain’t Funny’ for my children’s album, ‘I Believe In You.’ I wanted kids to understand how harmful bullying can be to someone. When I launched the Doggy Parton line of pet products earlier this year, my god-dog Billy got to be the star of the show. Since he’s a big star now, I knew a story with him at the center could help drive home important messages in a unique way. I hope this is the first of many books with Billy.”

To bring Billy’s story to life, Dolly teamed up with Mackenzie Haley, an illustrator from Louisville, Kentucky, whose books include The Ninja Club Sleepover, Pegasisters Go to Camp, and Snitchy Witch, among others. Dolly’s previous children’s books include Coat Of Many Colors and I Am A Rainbow.

Penguin Workshop president Francesco Sedita said,

“Working with Dolly is a true delight, and we’re so happy to adopt her god-dog, Billy the Kid, into the Penguin Workshop family!  This story is going to bring joy (and a little bit of country) to so many.”

Now Available for Preorder

Dolly Parton’s Billy the Kid Makes it Big, illustrated by MacKenzie Haley, is set for release on April 25, 2023 and is now available for preorder.
