EDITORS’ NOTES

Like many larger-than-life music icons, Dolly Parton’s story is more than the journey of a small-town girl from East Tennessee to global superstardom—it’s a mirror that reflects our own ideas about fame, feminism, and the American dream. In a terrific new podcast series from Radiolab’s Jad Abumrad, the veteran audio journalist returns home to Nashville to revisit Parton's life and place in pop culture history as America’s “Great Unifier.” This official playlist will serve as a soundtrack companion to the series, updated weekly with music from each episode.
