Country legend Dolly Parton once turned down an offer to run for President by claiming, "I think we've had enough boobs in the White House," but her latest business venture proves she's far from one herself.
With 25 No. 1 singles on the country music charts and over 100 million albums sold throughout her nearly 50-year career, Dolly Parton has become a household name in American culture. But she's always looking for new ways to get her songs out and her April 2 CD/DVD release from her 2011 European tour, An Evening With...Dolly, is no exception. Ever the crafty businesswoman, Dolly may have discovered the latest way to release music through her exclusive partnership with Cracker Barrel. The chain of restaurants is virtually unheard of above the Mason-Dixon line, but is a huge draw for her largely Southern fanbase and helped her latest release go gold with over 500,000 units sold.
Could young country music stars like Kellie Pickler and Carrie Underwood soon be selling their albums at Cracker Barrel? Find out why they might after the jump.
