Country music specialist Baylen Leonard talks to country music icon Dolly Parton for BBC Radio 2’s Tennessee Boy Meets Tennessee Girl.

In the programme, Baylen invites you back home, which for him and a certain Miss Dolly Parton, are the Smoky Mountains, Tennessee where Dolly reveals her memories of the area she calls home and her love of the local dish squirrel gravy. They discuess her triumphant performance at Glastonbury 2014; and how she wants superstar singer Adele to sing I Will Always Love You – all interspersed with a selection of Dolly’s best music. She also talks about the inspiration behind her latest album and tour, Pure & Simple, and in true Dolly style says: “I may not be pure but I’m as simple as they come”.
