'They know my catalogue and they know me': Dolly Parton signs to Sony/ATV

Sony/ATV has signed a deal to represent the catalogue of Dolly Parton.

The agreement takes in songs from across Parton’s entire career, including I Will Always Love You, 9 to 5, and Jolene, as well as newly written compositions. It covers North America and territories not covered by existing sub-publishing arrangements. 

Sony/ATV Chairman and CEO Martin Bandier said: “Dolly Parton is a true musical icon and we are unbelievably excited to get the chance to work with her again. Her importance, influence and legacy as a recording artist is recognized the world over, but more than anything she stands out as an exceptional songwriter with a peerless catalogue of songs, which we are honoured to represent.” 

Dolly Parton said: “I am very excited to be working with Sony/ATV. They know my catalogue and they know me. Get ready, you're going to be hearing a lot more from me!”

Dolly Parton manager Danny Nozell, CEO, CTK Management, said: “With so many years of Dolly's career being under Sony, we feel this is a great home for Dolly's publishing administration and we’re looking forward to the partnership.”
