The daily gossip: March 31, 2020

You can always count on Dolly Parton to save the day. The “Jolene” singer announced Monday that she will be launching a 10-part bedtime stories series, in which she will read aloud classic children’s books, starting with The Little Engine That Could. “I hope this gift will further inspire a love of books and shared storytime during this important time,” Parton said, adding: “As I always say — We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails — and we’re going to do just that, together.” Goodnight With Dolly premieres Thursday, April 2, and while it’s ostensibly for children, Nashville Scene recommends “putting on your pajamas, brushing your teeth, and getting in bed for maximum pleasure.” [Nashville Scene, YouTube]
