Dolly Parton News Round-Up — Broadway Musical, Wine Collection, and More!


There is no shortage of exciting news for fans of Dolly Parton.

Hello, I’m Dolly

The country music legend recently announced she is adapting her life story into a Broadway musical. “Hello, I’m Dolly” will arrive in 2026 with Parton writing the music, co-writing the book, and serving as producer.

She made the announcement at CMA Fest in Nashville on opening day, sharing that fans could expect, “all your favorites,” in addition to songs specifically written for the show.

The show’s title comes from her 1967 debut album and fans can sign up on to be the first to know when new information is released.

Dolly Wines

Additionally, Parton also revealed she is launching her first wine collection. Called Dolly Wines, the first wine in the collection will be a 2023 California Chardonnay, which the brand describes as “a blend of white peach, sweet cream, and toasty oak for a perfectly balanced sweetness.” A rose and a prosecco will join the lineup in the fall. The wine arrives in July, but can be pre-ordered now on

The Songteller Hotel

As if that wasn’t enough, Parton announced she has plans for a new hotel in Nashville. Dubbed the Songteller Hotel, it will be located at Third Avenue North and Commerce Street in the heart of downtown Nashville. It will also feature a museum of Parton memorabilia, including costumes she’s actually worn. The hotel’s name has significance, too: it’s named after her 2020 book that celebrated and explored her life and lyrics.

These ventures come in addition to her recent collaboration with Krispy Kreme and her line of baking mixes with Duncan Hines.

At 78 years old, Queen Dolly is staying booked and busy. Long may she reign!
