Dolly Parton’s most recent book, “Behind the Seams: My Life in Rhinestones,” focuses on how she was able to create a successful brand out of her “endearing, convention-defining, distinctly Dolly style”.

Ten Speed Press will release the 336-page book on October 17. It is the second installment of a trilogy that started with her best-selling book “Songteller: My Life in Lyrics” in 2020.

“My Life in Rhinestones,” co-written by Holly George-Warren and curated by Rebecca Seaver, is said to be inspired by Parton’s “lifelong passion for fashion,” according to a press release.

Parton, 77, is famous for saying, “It costs a lot of money to look this cheap.” In contrast, the retail price of “Behind the Seams: My Life in Rhinestones” is $50.

Dolly Parton attends the 37th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Los Angeles.

Parton will read the book aloud on an audiobook version of the book that also includes music and audio from the archives.

“I am thrilled, honored, and eager to introduce my book ‘Behind the Seams’ to the general public,” the newly inducted Rock and Roll Hall of Famer declared in a press release. “It is my hope that you will enjoy a look at my life in costume and hair and get to know some of the great people who have helped shape my life and my look.”

Parton’s private costume collection, which includes heels, makeup, stage outfits, wigs, and her October 1978 Playboy cover bunny suit and Studio 54 evening wear, will be made public in the book. Parton also talks about the clothing her mother used to make out of feed sacks, including her well-known “Coat of Many Colors”.

It is described in the press release as “an indispensable guide to forging your own path to beauty and confidence.”

Currently, Parton is working on a rock album that will include a number of legendary musicians, such as Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks, and Elton John.

The book chronicles Parton’s recent collaboration with Duncan Hines on baking mixes bearing the Dolly brand.

Forbes calculated Parton’s net worth to be $350 million in August 2021.
