Parton, who is everyone’s favorite songwriter in 2022, has released her newest single, “Big Dreams and Faded Jeans.”

It is the first track from her forthcoming album, Run, Rose Run, which also coincides with the novel she’s co-authored with James Patterson.

Parton’s new 12-song LP will be available on March 4 (fans can pre-order it HERE).

And the novel by the same name will be out on March 7 (fans can pre-order that HERE).

“So many people come to Nashville with their sack of songs,” said Parton in a press release. “Whether they’re running from anything or not, they’re running towards a future. That’s what ‘Big Dreams and Faded Jeans’ is all about. I am so pleased to finally share the first song from this exciting new album with all of you!”

According to the release, “The Run, Rose, Run album mirrors the story of a young woman who leaves home for Nashville, Tennessee to pursue her music-making dreams and the dark secret from her past that threatens it all.

“Co-produced by Richard Dennison and Tom Rutledge, the album provides an even deeper and more relatable sense of the novel—giving the audience an all-encompassing experience on and off the page.”
