“Needless to say, I am thrilled with my new association with UMG. Not only do they have 23 years of my back catalog ready to be brought into the digital world, but I find Dolly Parton on this project,” says Anderson. “Dolly sang demos for me (and with me) in the early sixties when she was new in town. One was a duet called “If It’s All The Same To You”, which had been missing for years. UMG picked it up and included it with my new duo and Dolly’s in this package. It’s called connecting the dots over fifty years. How cool is that?”
