Title - 'Pure & Simple'
Artist - Dolly Parton

Pure & Simple is, stunningly, the 43rd solo studio album by American singer-songwriter Dolly Parton. It was released worldwide on August 19th, 2016, by Dolly Records and RCA Nashville and turned out to be Parton's seventh No. 1 country album; her first in twenty-five years.

The genesis for the project was a pair of intimate concerts Parton performed at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium in August 2015, featuring Parton and a quartet of backing players, entitled "Dolly Parton: Pure and Simple". The concerts were repeated the following weekend with four performances at Dollywood. The shows were well received and from that emerged the idea to produce a similarly stripped down album and tour.

1. "Pure and Simple"
2. "Say Forever You'll Be Mine"
3. "Never Not Love You"
4. "Kiss Is (And Make It All Better)"
5. "Can't Be That Wrong"
6. "Outside Your Door"
7. "Tomorrow Is Forever"
8. "I'm Sixteen"
9. "Head Over High Heels"
10. "Forever Love"

Containing 10 tracks, three of which have been previously recorded by Parton in one form or another ("Tomorrow Is Forever", "Say Forever You'll Be Mine" and "Can't Be That Wrong"), Pure & Simple is just that aka Dolly at her undeniably best. Inclusive of some simple arrangements throughout, Dolly has fun on this album. Light in fare, sure, it clocks in at only 33 minutes, and even with a banjo and a delightful string quartet at times, Pure & Simple is a refined, defined Dolly for the ages.
