“I still can’t believe that I get to launch Spotify’s first ever Bookcast with my buddy James
Patterson,” Parton said in a statement. “What a great way to reach out to listeners all around the world.

music. James and I hope that listeners will be able to feel the connection between the book and
the album as we work to bring this story and these characters to life, as only two storytellers
