SANTA MONICA, CA February 6, 2013 --- Following the success of its limited series Song by Song: Johnny Cash last fall, Ovation is launching Song by Song as an ongoing original series. Kicking off the series this year will be SONG BY SONG: DOLLY PARTON, premiering March 10 at 8:00 pm ET.

SONG BY SONG: DOLLY PARTON will feature an exclusive interview with Dolly herself as she shares her most intimate memories and stories about the inspiration and impact of six of her most popular songs in six dedicated episodes.

"Country music is a quintessential American art form. Dolly Parton's singing and songwriting talent has made her a music icon and she has inspired countless other musical artists. We would be remiss if we did not include a tribute to Dolly in our popular SONG BY SONG series," said Robert Weiss, Chief Creative Officer for Ovation.

Having written over 650 songs and selling more than 100 million albums, Dolly Parton is an American inspiration. The recipient of numerous Grammy Awards(R) and the Lifetime Achievement Award, Country Music's Entertainer of the Year Award, two Oscar(R) nominations, a Tony Award (R) nomination and the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor, Dolly Parton's successful career has transcended music, television, theatre and film.

The series is narrated by Ray Van Ness.

· I Will Always Love You, which Whitney Houston recorded and eventually became the bestselling single of all time by a female artist. Premiering Sunday, March 10 at 8:00 pm ET.
