The initial plan of hunting and putting together two videos of these two gets immediately abandoned. So in all excitement and with pride, here’s the aforesaid clip. Have fun!

As we’ve seen from today’s featured video, Dolly Parton was scheduled to sing Rockin’ Years with Van Shelton. The two got nominated for Best Country Vocal Collaboration for this project.  But tied to her work in Florida that night, she asked her friend Patty to be her stand-in. And, wasn’t that a great choice from our Book Lady? Loveless has sung her part with the type of expertise expected from a real singer. The same could be said about Van Shelton. Bet most would agree that he was one among the best Country male singers until his decision for early retirement.

Rockin’ Years – Dolly Parton’s Record and Her Brother Floyd’s Song

Rockin’ Years was Floyd Estel Parton‘s song dedication to their parents. Having stood for each other for more than five decades, Floyd penned a fitting tribute. With mastery, he scribbled words that accurately described and celebrated the beauty of a lasting love.

Dolly Parton made Floyd’s song her second track in her 30th album, Eagle When She Flies. Released in 1991, the album received a warm reception from fans and music critics alike. Living up to its title, the album soared to the top of Country charts in its first week, RIAA Platinum certified for the 1M copies sold and 2 Grammy Nominations for Dolly.
