Dolly Parton spoke about the project:“We did a whole bunch of songs thinking we were going to do it, years and years ago, the very first try. And it didn’t come out. And it was only years later that we got together and did a bunch more songs and it did come out. And so there was tons and
tons of stuff left in the can. Cause we would go in two or three different times to record different things.”

Both ‘Trio’ and ‘Trio II’ won Grammy’s and sold millions.

Dolly Parton is about to embark on her first North American tour in 25 years with her new album ‘Pure and Simple.’

Aubrie Sellers is a new voice on the country scene. Her debut album, ‘New City Blues’ shows her as a musician that seamlessly links the indie rock enclave of East Nashville to her country roots in Texas:
“People would ask me what my music was and I would say it’s country. But I thought, that doesn’t really embody what it is fully. And so I always described it as trashy and I came up with a bunch of sounds, trashy country wouldn’t describe it. Garage country sort of embodies that rock that raw sound as well as the country in my voice and some of my songwriting,” she mused.

It took years for Sellers, a third-generation musician, to find her niche, she is the daughter of country singer Lee Ann Womack and country songwriter Jason Sellers.

He spoke about his latest project:
“There’s a lot of this album that reminds me of other stuff I have recorded. It’s a good representation of where I have been, where I am and where I am going, if that makes sense.”
