Sisters in Country is a Documentary programme.


Sisters in Country

Documentary which explores how Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris's careers took off in the 1970s with very distinct takes on country, but how they ended up uniting as close harmony singers and eventually collaborated on 1987's four-million-selling debut album, Trio. In the 60s country music was viewed by most of America as blue collar and Dolly was country through and through. Linda Ronstadt's take on classic country helped make her the biggest female star in mid-70s USA. Folkie Emmylou learned about country from mentor Gram Parsons and later became a bandleader in her own right.
