Dolly Parton earns, yet, another sales award as her 42nd studio album, Blue Smoke – The Best Of, has been certified Gold by the BPI and remains #3 on the official UK chart in its sixth week of release.
“Dolly could not be any happier,” says Dolly’s manager Danny Nozell, CEO CTK Management. “She has worked very hard over the past several years to create the momentum that we have going. Everyone at Dolly Records and Sony Music has done an outstanding job with making Dolly’s new music available and the sales prove it.”
Blue Smoke – The Best Of, includes her latest studio album Blue Smoke featuring “Home“, “Blue Smoke” and new duet with long- time collaborator and friend Kenny Rogers and even a Bon Jovi cover! Alongside her greatest hits on disc 2 featuring the classics such as “Jolene“, “9 to 5“, “Islands in the Stream“, “Little Sparrow“, “Here You Come Again” and “I Will Always Love You” plus many more.
“Blue Smoke – The Best Of is officially Gold in the UK, which is a massive achievement for Dolly Parton and the team,” says Faye Donaldson, Sr. Marketing Manager/Sony Music. “The response to Dolly after her Glastonbury performance has been amazing and having new music available at the same time has created a reaction that I’ve never seen before. It’s been just perfect.”
In addition, Dolly’s previous studio album Better Day, which was released in 2011, has been certified Silver.
