Dolly Parton, the adorable self-described "girl next door" has just announced the 2014 U.S. tour dates of her "Blue Smoke World Tour," which coincide with her upcoming release of the same name.
So far, the announcements on her twitter page have only covered overseas spots such as Europe, Japan and New Zealand, but yesterday she proudly announced shows in California, Oklahoma, North Carolina and more. Knoxville, Tennessee is especially excited about the May 28th date scheduled to be held at the University of Tennessee to benefit Dolly's Imagination Library.
Blue Smoke is Parton's first album since 2011, and her 42nd release overall. This year has been exciting for her--between rapping, twerking and calling out Miley Cyrus (it's all love, though) on The Queen Latifah Show and getting recordings inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, she's been steadily announcing tour dates starting in January and ending in July.

Looking forward to when Dolly brings it on home next year to wow us with new and favorite songs as well as the new dance grooves she's apparently picked up from her goddaughter.
