Tucked under a flamboyant facade of big blonde hair – and even bigger boobs – is the iconic songwriter, Dolly Parton. A revered inductee of the Country Music Hall of Fame, Parton is a prolific composer whose timeless numbers have sprung to life in their own right. Parton's "I Will Always Love You" topped the music charts twice, with its second incarnation performed by Whitney Houston in 1992, whereas her haunting "Jolene" has achieved virtual immortality through countless renditions by artists such as Jack White and Miley Cyrus. It seems that Parton's writing is universally relatable, as her raw reflection transcends genre. 8pm, $95, Tobin Center for Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Cir.
