Dolly Parton Planning To Release Music After Her Death

Are you planning for what happens to your stuff after you died? For many of us this is something we have all at the very least, considered. As with everything, Dolly Parton has taken this planning for what happens after death to the next level. 

In a recent interview the country legend has revealed that she doesn't want to see her music go the same way as some other artists who've had posthumous releases. "I'm one of those people that believe in being prepared," she says. "I don't want to ever leave my stuff in the same shape like Prince or Aretha or anybody that don't plan ahead."

Parton's plan is to record vocal tracks to be used by future producers and songwriters to create whatever kind of song they are working on. 

"I've got hundreds, hundreds, even thousands of songs - a big part of them have never even been recorded. There's enough stuff to go on forever with my music, to do compilation albums, to do new and original stuff. I am purposely trying to put songs down for that very purpose, to have a click track and my vocals where any arrangement could be done."

“Any producer anywhere in the world, when I’m gone, they could take my songs just the click track and my vocal and build a complete arrangement around that, any style. That will go on forever,” she says.
