FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Monday, May 9, 2016) – Coming off the heels of a headline-making performance at the ACM Awards in early April, Dolly Parton is heading out on her largest North American tour in over two decades.

Dolly Parton’s Pure & Simple Tour coincides with the summer release of her double-disc album Pure & Simple with Dolly’s Biggest Hits. The collection will include some of Parton’s most popular singles as well as a few new tracks. Parton’s set list will include the hits her fans love along with a few new songs from the double-disc album. She will also be playing songs that have not been heard live for decades.

Additional U.S. dates for Parton's 2016 historic tour will be announced soon, which includes her first trek into Canada in more than two decades.

For the last 20 years, Parton has only played select dates in the U.S., but her 2016 tour will cover cities across North America. The entertainment icon is on one of the biggest hot streaks of her career after her hugely successful TV movie, “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” attracted a network record of more than 15.8 million viewers. It was the most watched movie on network TV in more than three years and will be released on DVD May 3.
