Dolly Parton Writes Song for "Transamerica"


A brand new track from veteran country artist Dolly Parton will appear on the "Transamerica" soundtrack, due Feb. 7 via Nettwerk. "Travelin' Thru" was written by Parton specifically for the Duncan Tucker dramedy.

"It was proud to be asked to write a song for 'Transamerica,' Parton says of the Weinstein Company/IFC Films title, currently playing in limited U.S. release. "It's a remarkable movie that touches you in every single place of human emotion."
If there is one person who can make preoperative transexuals acceptable to mainstream America, it's Dolly Parton. I'm pretty sure she could French kiss Saddam Hussein on the White House lawn and everyone would still love her.

Good for Dolly. She is a brave woman and has never kept her beliefs quiet just to keep her commercial success. I admire people like that.
