• Survivor - Stella Parton

There couldn't be a more appropriate title for Stella Parton's latest album, Survivor, her 38th studio album and the first in 10 years to feature original material.

In addition to sharing her older sister Dolly's impoverished childhood, Stella's life became even more turbulent once she entered adulthood. During her early 20s, relatives and advisors tried to convince the divorced, single mother to give up her dream of singing professionally - or to at least change her last name. "I felt like my birthright was being taken," Stella told the Daily Mail in 2016. "I think Dolly felt helpless and I'm sure it confused her, as at that time she was still a little girl herself. We were just young women, sisters, being pitted against each other."

In writing her latest album, Stella, 68, says acknowledging her traumatic past was important. "If you deny who you are and the things that have happened to you, you're actually not staying true to yourself," she says, "and that's the least we can retain: being true to ourselves in all things. I've tried to do that and to embrace myself in struggle and triumph."
