“Now come on let’s talk turkey, just straight and to the point. About passions about problems, about noses out of joint…”
Sorry, every time I think of Dolly, I have to sing Straight Talk, it’s a thing. I admit, I love that song, it’s a guilty pleasure. Also in the Dolly Parton “fan” club is Scotty who headed down to her show in Palm Springs… NICE!

Opening Night of Dolly Parton’s Blue Smoke World Tour 2014
Agua Caliente Casino
January 24, 2014
Last week I made my way to see the one and only Dolly Parton on the opening night of her Blue Smoke World Tour 2014. A friend of mine invited me to go and I was not going to miss the show. I have been a fan of Dolly’s songs and movies for a long time, but had never seen her live. What a bad fan, right?
When Dolly took to the stage you could feel her spirit. At 68 years young, Dolly looked and sounded GREAT! Dolly radiated her energy, sound, and movement all around the stage for two hours. It was so fun to see her and listen to the stories behind her music. She painted a picture with each song and story and made everyone feel as if they were back at her home where she grew up in Tennessee.
Since I had never seen her live, I was most excited to hear her sing her hits like “Why’d You Come in Here Lookin’ Like That,” “Jolene,” “Here You Come Again,” and “9 to 5.” Her set list was as follows:
1) Fire Medley (Baby I’m Burnin’ / Burning Love / Great Balls of Fire / This Girl Is on
2) Why’d You Come in Here Lookin’ Like That
4) Blue Smoke
5) Don’t Think Twice
6) My Mountains, My Home
7) Grandpa Medley (Old Time Religion / I’ll Fly Away / I’m on My Way (Canaan
Land) / My Mountains)
8) Coat of Many Colors
9) Smoky Mountain Memories
11) Rocky Top
12) Together You and I
13) Lay Your Hands on Me
14) Better Get to Livin’
15) Lover du Jour
16) Banks of the Ohio
17) Travelin’ Prayer
18) Shine (Collective Soul cover)
19) Dolly Medley (It’s All Wrong, But It’s All Right / The Bargain Store / Love Is Like
a Butterfly / Old Flames Can’t Hold a Candle to You / But You Know I Love You /
Real Love / Think About Love)
20) Here You Come Again
21) Islands in the Stream
22) 9 to 5
23)I Will Always Love You
Thank you Dolly for a night of wonderful music. I hope that you will make your
way through Los Angeles so that I will be able to catch your show a second time. If
Dolly’s tour is making its way to your neck of the woods, you must go and see her!
