What Would Dolly Do?
From portraying her as a child in Paradise Road to releasing their duet “Hand Me Downs,” Janelle Arthur’s bond with her childhood hero Dolly Parton is deeply rooted and spans over many years.
"What Would Dolly Do” is about how we could all strive to be more like the legend herself. From her confidence to her humor. From her big hair to her big... heart! It’s an anthem not only for Dolly lovers but for anyone who thinks we need a little more kindness (and rhinestones) in the world. It’s a country jam that will definitely get stuck in your head.
Hand Me Downs
Featuring Dolly Parton
My greatest hope for Hand Me Downs is that it will move people and reach as many souls as it’s supposed to.
After everything we have been through within the last year, we have been reminded that family and relationships matter the most.
Let’s get this song and message out into the world!
“That Janelle is great!”
- Dolly Parton
