Dolly Parton’s America

This site is an online forum dedicated to displaced individuals with a longing for home or anyone in a nostalgic mood during this difficult time. The inspiration for this site came from the award-winning podcast series Dolly Parton’s America a production of Shima Oliaee hosted by Jad Abumrad. Jad Abumrad, during the making of the highly acclaimed podcast, realized something that unifies all when listening to Dolly Parton’s music. Abumrad called it the ‘smoky mountain trance,’ and it is the sense of both longing and contentment that resonates in Dolly Parton’s music and life. Through the convergence of images, music and dialogue, this site contributes to the theme of music and celebrities in podcasting by making a note of the influence Dolly Parton has on listeners of the Dolly Parton’s America podcast. In addition, this site welcomes the sharing of dialogue, creative content and ideas on the topic of displacement.
