Song of the Day: 'Here You Come Again' by Dolly Parton

A great new article in Billboard in which we learn Dolly Parton embraces the Black Lives Matter movement is the perfect reason to make the music legend my song of the day:

“And of course Black lives matter. Do we think our little white asses are the only ones that matter? No!”

Parton was ahead of the curve when it comes to country music re-brandings: In 2018, she renamed her Dixie Stampede dinner attraction in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., “Dolly Parton’s Stampede.”

“When they said ‘Dixie’ was an offensive word, I thought, ‘Well, I don’t want to offend anybody. This is a business. We’ll just call it The Stampede,'” Parton said. “As soon as you realize that [something] is a problem, you should fix it."

She continued: “Don’t be a dumbass. That’s where my heart is. I would never dream of hurting anybody on purpose.”

"Here You Come Again" -- featuring the gayest lyric ever: "Here you come again, lookin' better than a body has a right to" -- was such a great song it's easy to see why it was Dolly's first huge crossover hit, from her first million-selling album.
