Reviewers are already raving about I Believe In You:
“Dolly Parton may be singing children’s songs on I Believe In You, but the album’s topics and depth speak to listeners of all ages.” -Mike Ragona, Huffington Post
“Weaving powerful life lessons with catchy, sing-along music, led by one of the finest vocalists of any genre, Dolly pours her love of children into each of the 14 tracks on I Believe in You. It's a must-have not only for children, but for parents, grandparents, teachers, and anyone who works with the younger generation.” -Gayle Thompson, The Boot
The album will feature 14 new songs, all written and performed by Dolly with the spirit and heart of children in mind. Proceeds from the album will benefit Imagination Library, which was established in 1995 to honor Parton’s father, who never had the chance to learn to read or write.
