The legendary Dolly Parton shares her heartfelt hopes and dreams for everyone.

Expanding on the hugely popular commencement speech that Dolly Parton gave at the University of Tennessee, Dream More is a deeper and richer exploration of the personal philosophy she has forged over the course of her astonishing career as a singer, songwriter, performer, and philanthropist.

Dolly elaborates on the four great hopes she wants us all to embrace: Dream more, Learn more, Care more, and Be more. She offers examples of them, from her childhood in the hills of eastern Tennessee to her life as the iconic performer she is today.

From one of the legends of our time, Dream More is an honest and uplifting anthem for all who want to take charge of their lives and forge a future on their own terms.

About the Author:

Dolly Parton is one of the biggest stars of country music and one of the best-selling recording artists of all time. Known as “The Queen of Country Music,” she has sold more than 100 million records. She has starred in a wide array of movies, and has won eight Grammys and been nominated for two Academy Awards, five Golden Globes, and an Emmy.

From Booklist:

Parton herself is the first to admit that being asked to speak at a university commencement was one of the most unlikely performances of her career. As a child of poverty from a small town in eastern Tennessee, Parton’s formal education ended at high school. That was fine with her, for she had bigger dreams, and the stuff of those dreams is what fueled her career and inspired her remarks to the University of Tennessee graduating class of 2009. Parton’s message was simple: dream more, learn more, care more, be more. Realizing that there is, indeed, more to be said about each topic, Parton now expands upon her well-received commencement address, providing examples from her down-and-out childhood as well as her illustrious career as an entertainer, businesswoman, and philanthropist. As unassuming and genuine, vibrant and outrageous as the woman herself, Parton’s advice resonates with a sincerity that can be appreciated by graduating students or anyone seeking a comfortable source of inspiration and guidance. --Carol Haggas
