Dolly Parton Teams with James Patterson to Write First Novel

Dolly Parton has teamed up with bestselling author James Patterson on her latest collaboration, and, no, they’re not singing together.  Together they have written her first novel, called Run, Rose, Run, which will be released on March 7, 2022.  At the same time, Dolly will release an album containing 12 original songs inspired by the book.

Dolly shared the big news on social media yesterday (Wednesday, August 11th) writing, “I cannot be more excited about the release of my very first novel Run, Rose, Run with the great James Patterson.  I also have a new album to go along with the book.  All new songs were written based on the characters and situations in the book. I hope you enjoy the book and the songs as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it all together! reports that Run, Rose, Run tells the story of young woman, who moves to Nashville to fulfill her dreams of becoming a star.  According to a press release, “The source of her heart-wrenching songs is a brutal secret she has done everything to hide, but the past she has fled is reaching out to control her future—even if it means destroying everything she has worked for.”
