Dolly Parton Ushers In A Better Day

Can we take a moment to appreciate that Better Day is Dolly Parton’s freaking 41st studio album? Much respect, Dolly, much respect. What makes Dolly tunes so amazing is that they can take lyrics that would normally make me roll my eyes—for example, “Together you and I can stop the rain/ and make the sun shine”—but with her voice and the sheer power of her optimism, it makes me think, Yes, we can make the sun shine! This album is the perfect thing to play at your Fourth of July BBQ over the long weekend or to put on the stereo for that road trip to Dollywood.
