    On Friday morning, August 10th, 2012, Concert Blast was invited to a press conference with Dolly Parton as she was presented the Gold award from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for the two disc set, “An Evening With… Dolly“, available at the Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores.  Special Thanks to the public relations and marketing company, Webster and Associates LLC, for the invitation and to Michelle Arnold for stepping in to help our team cover this event.  Although there was a Question and Answer section of the press conference, the media’s questions were not recorded loud enough, therefore they were edited out and you will only hear Dolly Parton talking.  Enjoy listening to the Press Conference and reading the following Press Release!

    Nashville, TN (August 10, 2012) – The first-ever Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® two-disc set, An Evening With… Dolly, has earned a Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) Gold award and today Dolly got to celebrate! The DVD/CD was RIAA certified just four weeks after its April 2 release date and its debut at #2 on Billboard’s Top DVD Music Videos Chart.

    “In true Dolly fashion and always on the cutting edge, Dolly was the first to be Sound Scanned in Cracker Barrel’s exclusive music program, and now their first gold record,” said Dolly’s Manager/President of Dolly Records Danny Nozell.

    The RIAA gold award marks a first for Cracker Barrel and the first for Dolly Records in the U.S., with previous Gold certifications in Australia and the United Kingdom.

    “I’m thrilled that so many fans are listening to my songs and taking a look behind-the-scenes of my European tour,” said Dolly. “I had a wonderful time performing in London and I think the audience did too. It’s exciting to be able to share my experiences with Cracker Barrel fans. And I have to tell you, I’m even more excited that An Evening With… Dolly earned the first Gold in the Cracker Barrel exclusive music program. That’s just icing on the cake.”

    The first-ever Cracker Barrel two-disc set was the second project with Dolly Parton and is available for $11.99 exclusively at all Cracker Barrel locations and online at
