Country Legends: Dolly Parton & Porter Wagoner & Friends (DVD)
The day after Dolly Parton graduated from high school in rural Tennessee, she was off to Nashville and quickly became a giant in country music. As a singer, songwriter and actress, she became one of the world's most iconic and beloved entertainers.
In 1967, Porter Wagoner hired Dolly to sing on his weekly TV show. They worked together for over a decade and enjoyed many hit duets before and after Dolly's solo career took off with her classics Coat of Many Colors, Jolene and I Will Always Love You and others.
This special collection features historic performances from The Porter Wagoner Show and the Dolly series spanning 1967-1977 and includes favorite songs not only by Dolly and Porter but other great country artists such as Tom T.
