Dolly Parton says she's always sought love and attention. That's why she became a star. For the show on February 10, Scott spoke with Dolly about her career, her childhood and her new CD called Little Sparrow. It celebrates the bluegrass and mountain music she heard growing up in eastern Tennessee. Scott suggested in the interview that "Dolly Parton's roots are showing." Dolly agreed.

Little Sparrow is a kind of sequel to The Grass is Blue, which Dolly released in 1999. That record won the Album of the Year Award from the International Bluegrass Music Association. The music on Dolly's most recent albums does not fit easily into the highly programmed formats of country music radio stations, but it's being played and acclaimed.
