On This Date: Dolly Parton Was Topping The Charts With Her 19th Studio Album, ‘Here You Come Again’

Dolly Parton country music

Talk about an all-time great album.

On this day in 1978, Dolly Parton was topping the charts with her 19th studio album, Here You Come Again, which became her first album to be certified Platinum by the RIAA.

It was released in October of 1977, and peaked at #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country chart and #20 on the US Billboard 200 chart.

The project was also successful crossover attempt, with the lead single “Here You Come Again” peaking at #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, #3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, and even #2 on the U.S. Billboard Easy Listening chart.

Of course, that one became a fan-favorite and one of Dolly’s most popular songs, and after the success it saw at pop radio, the following two singles, “Two Doors Down” (which has a great story behind it) and “It’s All Wrong, But It’s All Right,” were sent to pop radio.

“Two Doors Down” was issued with a new, more pop-leaning production, and subsequently replaced the original on all the following album pressings.

It failed to crack the Top 10 on any part of radio, but “It’s All Wrong, But It’s All Right” actually peaked at #1 on both the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in 1978.

It’s one of my favorite Dolly Parton records, showing off her versatility and value to not only country but other genres, as well, and it also features one of my favorite album covers, too.

Gonna go turn these up today…
