Courtesy SpotifyDolly Parton is among the guest stars tapped to curate playlists for Spotify’s new “Listening Together” series, a hub of curated content themed around activities that listeners may be doing at home. Dolly’s batch of tunes is the first of five weekly-released new lists, and it’s titled “At Home Together.”

The country legend takes the opportunity to spotlight rising female country artists, including songs by Maren MorrisIngrid AndressAshley McBrydeBrandi CarlileKelsea Ballerini and Runaway June. She also taps some relatively unknown artists, such as Candi Carpenter — whose cover of Dolly’s “Little Sparrow” makes the playlist — and songwriter Steve Moakler

But there’s more than just country songs to be found on Dolly’s “At Home Together” list: She also samples her gospel roots, tapping her young duet partners For King & Country and more. Plus, there’s a healthy helping of pop greats on this list, including contributions from Celine DionDemi Levato and Journey

Of course, no playlist of Dolly’s would be complete without a couple of additions from the country queen herself. A few of her most beloved tracks, like “Coat of Many Colors” and “Jolene,” round out the list. 

Dolly will kick off the “Listening Together” series, followed by playlists curated by Selena GomezNormaniLil Yachty and Kiana Ledé. They’ll focus on themes of “Cooking Together,” “Working Out Together,” “Gaming Together,” and “Meditating Together,” respectively.
