It was a big night for Parton as her record-breaking biographical film Coat of Many Colors earned her the ACM’s Tex Ritter Award, and award that is presented to a movie released in the previous year that features country music.
“To be up there with the great stories like Coal Miner’s Daughter and O Brother and Walk the Line, it’s like you say, ‘Wow, all those were feature films, and this one was just a movie of the week on television,'” Parton says of the made-for-television movie.
Parton recently announced her first tour in 25 years to go along with her new album, Pure and Simple. The release date has yet to be announced.
