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. We would be remiss if we did not include a tribute to Dolly in our popular SONG BY SONG series," said Robert Weiss, Chief Creative Officer for Ovation.

Having written over 650 songs and selling more than 100 million albums, Dolly Parton is an American inspiration. 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.

In addition to Dolly Parton, the series will also feature interviews with many artists, colleagues and friends who have known and worked with her over the years, including Lily Tomlin, Kristin Chenoweth, Carrie Underwood, Kellie Pickler, Miley Cyrus, Mac Davis, Miranda Lambert, Kenny Rogers, Vince Gill, Brad Paisley, Janis Ian, record producer Kent Wells, recording executive Jody Williams, record producer Steve Buckingham, Dolly's band leader Michael Davis, director Duncan Tucker, singer/songwriters Lindi Ortega, Marty Stuart, Mindy Smith, Brandi Carlile and Jim Lauderdale, the Bluegrass group Grascals and biographer Alanna Nash. The series is narrated by Ray Van Ness.

SONG BY SONG: DOLLY PARTON will showcase the following songs in six episodes:

· I Will Always Love You, which Whitney Houston recorded and eventually became the bestselling single of all time by a female artist. Premiering Sunday, March 10 at 8:00 pm ET.

· 9 to 5,the Oscar(R)-nominated and #1 Billboard song from the hit film starring Dolly, which became a national anthem for office workers. Premiering Sunday, March 10 at 8:30 pm ET.
