Hollywood To Dollywood (15 Dolly Songs)

Bloodrush Films Presents
Hollywood to Dollywood

On the fumes of a dream, twin brothers Gary and Larry Lane have written a script with a
plum roll for one of their idols, Dolly Parton. Having had no luck getting the screenplay
into her hands, they embark on a cross-country journey to personally deliver it to her. They
set off from Dolly’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame heading East for Pigeon Forge,
TN. Driving an RV they (named Jolene) is friend and partner Mike Bowen. All along
Interstate 40 at rest stops, RV parks, bars, and hair salons our intrepid band of travelers
meet everyday Americans, as the encounter everything from Floods in Nashville to an
Oklahoma Tornado. The journey is also one of discovery for the brothers, as well: their
relationship with their parents; their hopes, fears and ambitions; the bigotry they’ve
encountered; as they search for tolerance and acceptance and the joy of realizing their
biggest dream handing their screenplay to Dolly Parton.
Featuring appearances by Leslie Jordan, Chad Allen, Beth Grant, Dustin Lance Black, Ann
walker, and maybe even Dolly herself! Hollywood to Dollywood is a documentary of
chasing dreams down the road of life.

ABOUT THE MUSIC
DOLLY PARTON
“I’ve always been a writer. My songs are the door to every dream I’ve ever had and every success I’ve ever
achieved,” says Dolly Parton of her incredible career, which has spanned nearly five decades and is showing no
signs of slowing down.
An internationally renowned superstar, the iconic and irrepressible Parton has contributed countless treasures
to the world of music entertainment, penning classic songs such as “Jolene,” “Coat of Many Colors,” and her
mega-hit “I Will Always Love You.” With 1977′s crossover hit “Here You Come Again,” she successfully
erased the line between country and pop music without noticeably altering either her music or her image. “I’m
not leaving country,” she said at the time, “I’m just taking it with me.”
Making her film debut in the 1980 hit comedy 9 to 5, Dolly earned rave reviews for her performance and an
Oscar nomination for writing the title tune, along with her second and third Grammy Awards. Roles in Steel
Magnolias, Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Rhinestone, and Straight Talk followed, along with two
network television series, made for television movies, network and HBO specials, and guest-starring roles in
series television. In 2006, Dolly earned her second Oscar nomination for “Travelin’ Thru,” which she wrote
for the film Transamerica.
Dolly Parton’s remarkable life began very humbly. Born January 19, 1946 on a farm in Sevier County,
Tennessee, Dolly is the fourth of twelve children. Her parents, Robert Lee and Avie Lee Parton struggled to
make ends meet in the impoverished East Tennessee hills. This hard rural life was the foundation of Dolly’s
career, as she began singing almost before she could talk, according to her father. By age 10, Dolly was
performing on local television and radio shows in nearby Knoxville, Tennessee. “I always wanted to be a star.
It just seemed natural to me,” she said. “Making music is all I’ve ever known.”
Dolly saw a cherished dream become a reality in 1986 with the opening of her own theme park called
Dollywood, in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, at the base of the Great Smoky Mountains. The state’s number one
tourist attraction, Dollywood was selected by the theme park industry as one of the top three theme parks in
the world in 2006.
Dolly Parton is the most honored female country performer of all time. Achieving 25 RIAA certified gold,
platinum and multi-platinum awards, she has had 25 songs reach number 1 on the Billboard Country charts, a
record for a female artist. She has 41 career top 10 country albums, a record for any artist, and she has 110
career charted singles over the past 40 years. All-inclusive sales of singles, albums, hits collections, paid
digital downloads and compilation usage during her Hall of Fame career have reportedly topped a staggering
100 million records world-wide.
She has garnered 7 Grammy Awards, 10 Country Music Association Awards, 5 Academy of Country Music
Awards, 3 American Music Awards and is one of only five female artists to win the Country Music
Association’s Entertainer of the Year Award.
In 1999, Dolly Parton was inducted as a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. She has her own star on
the Hollywood Walk of Fame and became a member of the National Academy of Popular Music Songwriters
Hall of Fame in 2001.
In February 2011, Dolly received the coveted GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award. The award is given
by the Recording Academy to performers who have made creative contributions of outstanding artistic
significance to the field of recording.
Yet with all of the national and international recognition given her, Dolly Parton calls the bronze statue of
her, which stands on the courthouse lawn in her hometown of Sevierville, Tennessee, her “greatest honor,
because it came from the people who know me.”
