Dolly Parton is one of several artists featured on a new compilation album that highlights the 27 Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.
Each track on 27: The Most Perfect Album is inspired by one of the 27 Amendments—a kind of Schoolhouse Rock! for the 21st Century. The project was created by the team at the More Perfect podcast from WNYC Studios, including host Jad Abumrad. Other contributing artists on the new album include They Might Be Giants, Devendra Banhart, Kash Doll, Torres, Kevin Morby and many others.
Dolly’s track is a celebration of women’s rights as she sings about the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote in 1920.
“Being lucky enough to be a successful woman in business, I wanted to exercise my right to write about the 19th Amendment to praise and uplift women,” said Dolly. “Of course, I did a fun take on my song ‘A Woman’s Right’ and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I, some good gals, and a few good guys did putting it together for you.”
