You know the labels are screwed when an country artist who hasn’t had a Gold selling record or even been on a label since the nineties can score the number 2 album on the Billboard Charts……all by themselves.

Dolly Parton has self-released her new CD “Backwoods Barbie” on her own label, Dolly Records, and hired a seven-member promotions team.

She has watched with interest as new technology has created opportunities without the big labels.

“Now the majors are what they used to think I was: history,” she said.

See our earlier post on Dolly who recently had to cancel her US tour due to “back problems”

Parton is now slated to appear on American Idol in early April.
