She independently produced the 10-song project, which she recorded at Nashville Sound Project House with engineer Mike Loudermilk. On the record are eight of her original songs including “I Ain’t Leavin’ ‘Til I’m Even,” a collaboration with Wayne Carson.

For the final two songs, Parton put her own spin on Bob Seger‘s classic “Like A Rock” and Avicii‘s mega-hit “Wake Me Up.”
“A singer should be able to touch the listener with ‘three chords and the truth’ as Harlan Howard used to say. That was my approach to writing and recording this project and I hope that these songs inspire anyone that hears them
