SANTA MONICA, CA February 6, 2013 --- Following the success of its limited series Song by Song: Johnny Cash last fall, Ovation is launching Song by Song as an ongoing original series. Kicking off the series this year will be SONG BY SONG: DOLLY PARTON, premiering March 10 at 8:00 pm ET.

"Country music is a quintessential American art form. Dolly Parton's singing and songwriting talent has made her a music icon and she has inspired countless other musical artists.

The recipient of numerous Grammy Awards(R) and the Lifetime Achievement Award, Country Music's Entertainer of the Year Award, two Oscar(R) nominations, a Tony Award (R) nomination and the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor, Dolly Parton's successful career has transcended music, television, theatre and film.

The series is narrated by Ray Van Ness.
