When it comes to iconic female singers, Dolly Parton is one of the biggest and the best. As she proved yet again when she performed her new single ‘Outside Your Door‘ on the outdoor stage on Jimmy Kimmel Live! yesterday. A teeny tiny figure calmly playing a guitar, singing a simple yet so sweet a song, and with a stage presence that is massive compared to her size.
‘Outside Your Door’ is from Parton’s new album Pure and Simple, which released back in August and shot to the number one spot on the country album list. It’s her first number one purely country album in 25 years.
Watch Dolly Parton performing ‘Outside Your Door‘ in the video below. You can also grab Pure and Simple, a superb album and quintessentially and perfectly Dolly, on all major music sites.
Edited: Sorry, I had to substitute a fan-filmed video of her performance, as Kimmel has sadly deleted it from his YouTube channel (which is why I no longer showcase performances from his show).
