Another chance to hear Dolly Parton play and discuss some of her favourite tracks.

Ahead of Dolly Parton's appearance at Glastonbury, a chance to hear a programme first broadcast on Radio 2 in which Paul Sexton meets her in Nashville and she plays and discusses her favourite tracks and artists, both in country music and far beyond.

"When I get a chance to sit down and listen to music, I just love to pick out some of those old albums," she says in the programme. "Music is still No. 1 with me. I love that I can make a living, but it's not the money. I love to work."

Dolly is on highly entertaining form as ever in this warm and chatty conversation with journalist/broadcaster Sexton.

Dolly discusses the heroes and heroines that inspired her own extraordinary journey to superstardom, such as George Jones and Kitty Wells. Along the way, she'll tell us what she makes of her goddaughter Miley Cyrus and how she writes songs herself ("I wouldn't know a hit if it jumped up and bit me in the butt, I just know what I like"), and there are some surprising revelations among her record choices. Listeners will find out what she thought of the recent country duet in which her name was part of the lyric, and she'll talk about her longtime friendship with fellow country figurehead Kenny Rogers.
