    Dolly Parton

    After years of playing only select cities and casinos, rags-to-rhinestones songstress Dolly Parton set off on a major U.S. and Canada undertaking. The 60-city Pure & Simple trek follows this summer’s two-disc set of the same name. Fans of the Dixie stampeder, 70, should expect a tour through her country and bluegrass standards (“Jolene,” “9 to 5,” “Little Sparrow”), plus gems she’s dusting off for the first time in decades.
