Expanding on the hugely popular commencement speech that Dolly Parton gave at the University of Tennessee, "Dream More" is a deeper and richer exploration of the personal philosophy she has forged over the course of her astonishing career as a singer, songwriter, performer, and philanthropist.
Dolly elaborates on the four great hopes she wants us all to embrace: Dream more, Learn more, Care more, and Be more. She offers examples of them, from her childhood in the hills of eastern Tennessee to her life as the iconic performer she is today.
From one of the legends of our time, "Dream More "is an honest and uplifting anthem for all who want to take charge of their lives and forge a future on their own terms.
When Parton told her high-school classmates that she planned to go to Nashville and become a star, the whole class burst into laughter. In her book Dream More, Parton explains the principles behind her success and describes how she became one of the best-selling recording artists of all time. More at NPR.org
