Read the Digital Edition of the November/December 2016 Issue, Featuring Dolly Parton


The November/December issue of American Songwriter is now available for digital download.

Our cover story features country legend Dolly Parton, who released her 43rd solo album Pure & Simple earlier this year. In the interview, Parton shares details of her songwriting process, her 50-year marriage to her husband Carl Dean and how, at 70, she has no plans of slowing down anytime soon.

We also spend some time with Hiss Golden Messenger’s MC Taylor, whose new LP Heart Like A Levee explores the often-fraught relationship between home life and touring. Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes takes on “Role Models” this issue, writing of his intense admiration for Will Oldham. And, just in time for holiday shopping, we have our annual Holiday Gear Guide for all your gift-giving needs.
