Dolly Parton teamed up with James Patterson to write the novel “Run, Rose, Run.” Every song tells a story and Rose is a star on the rise, singing about the hard life she left behind her. She’s also on the run: Find a future, lose a past. Nashville is where she’s come to claim her destiny; it is also where the darkness she fled from might find her and destroy her. “Run, Rose, Run” is available on CD and digitally through Libby. Hoopla has Parton’s digital music that was inspired by the book.
