It is based on a commencement speech the superstar gave at the University of Tennessee back in 2009.
Dolly said, "I know that I've learned some things in my life that are important to me, and I think maybe they might be good ideas to pass along to you. Not as advice, but as information that I have found has helped me over the years. Enough to share, and a little to spare. If you're lucky, your dreams will never die, you may not always achieve them, but if you always have dreams and reach for them, you'll never be a failure. I still have dreams of what I want to do next."
- Dolly can currently be seen on the big screen at film festivals around the world in the award-winning documentary film, Hollywood to Dollywood. The movie is also out on DVD and Blu-ray. The film follows the journey of twin brothers who travel across the country in hopes of getting a screenplay they've written to Dolly, for whom they've also written a part.
- Dolly herself is working on the Broadway version of her life story.
- Dolly's self-penned song, "Coat of Many Colors," was recently added to The Library of Congress National Recording Registry. Each year the Library of Congress selects 25 recordings that are "historically", "culturally", or "aesthetically significant" and are at least 10 years old to be added to the National Recording Registry, with selections that are being added to the registry now bringing the total number of recordings to 350.
