Between tour stops in Kansas City and St. Louis, I caught up with Dolly Parton in a phone interview. The 70-year old singer is on the road promoting her 43rd studio album, Pure & Simple (available worldwide August 19th). Candid and real as always, Parton spoke about her new album, a future appearance on Grace & Frankie with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, and her 50-year career in the entertainment industry. Here are the highlights from our conversation.

Hollywood, it seems, wants to give Lily Tomlin an award. I'm all for it; she's been around a long time and has done consistently brilliant work. But if she gets an Oscar, it shouldn't be for her new movie, Grandma, which has been receiving rapturous reviews from just about everyone.

As Class Historian for Vassar's first coed freshman class, to me it was historically coincidental that Arianna Huffington opened her address at Vassar's 151st commencement in Poughkeepsie, New York, 75 miles north of New York City, with a reference to her own Greek heritage.
