The album, which Parton executive produced, will come out later this year on Dolly Records/RCA Nashville. The project features Parton vocally collaborating with a number of partners on six new songs, co-written by Parton and Perry, and newly recorded versions of several previously released Parton songs.

The film, which is negotiations for distribution, is based on Julie Murphy’s best-selling book about a plus-sized girl who enters a beauty pageant to defy her mom, who is a former pageant queen.
