More Dolly More Elvis

About 30 years ago Elvis Presley asked a pretty blond country singer if he could record a love song she'd penned. The request for I Will Always Love You stirred Dolly Parton's blood. But Colonel Parker wanted half the publishing rights and Parton, a savvy business woman, wasn't ready to give that up and Elvis didn't record the song. She told the story to set up a new song she's written, "I Dreamed About Elvis", to memorialize the event. The song, which will appear on a CD scheduled for release in early 2005, is a novelty song performed with an impersonator (Ronnie McDowell) who eventually sings her famous ballad by the end of the track. The upcoming album will also feature a remake of Elvis Presley's "Viva Las Vegas."

The King Is Gone is the best elvis tribute song ever done. I think Ronnie will give his best on I Will Always Love you with Dolly. Im sure Dolly and Elvis would have enjoyed each others company very much since they were born in the south and their family was poor, but had deep religious roots.

It is very easy to look back into the past and complain about Colonel Parker. He worked for, and on behalf of, Elvis. Elvis could have demanded to do these things people say he was denied, but he did not. Elvis was spending money faster than he was earning it, so it was Parker's job to make the best deals possible. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, and making judgements about moments in history is tainted by our knowledge of what happened after the event.

Ronnie McDowell singing with Dolly? Great idea! I still remember when he sang "The King Is Gone" back in 1977. It was and still is the most heartfelt and sincere tribute to Elvis that I have ever heard. Not to mention the great work that Ronnie has done over the years on so many elvis film/tv projects.

Anyone who wants impersonators to record anything and impersonators themselves are freaks, but I suppose they deserve each other... Mofoca, what on earth are you taking ? Whatever it is I could do with some if they have the same hallucinational effect!The old nonsense about 'A Star Is Born'; Priscilla 'the love of his lie'? World tours...jeez

Terry Mike Jeffrey is the only one that coould put the right feel to that songs. He has the combination R&B, Gospel and Country all in one voice, and the Emotional impact that would make the needed impact...

The impersonator is Ronnie McDowell... He mentions on his website that he just finished recording a song with Dolly Parton that will appear on her new album in 2005.
