    LA-based Australian Americana singer-songwriter Lo Carmen joins me for our long awaited (at least by me) first Dolly episode! 

    We talk about Dolly the songwriter, how this album represents her stepping out from the shadow of her mentor Porter Wagoner, the stories behind iconic songs like 'Jolene' and 'I Will Always Love You', our favorite Jolene covers and the emotional equanimity of the album's lesser-known songs.

    My Favorite Album is a podcast on the impact great music has on our lives. Each episode features a guest on their favorite album of all time - why they love it, their history with the album and how it’s influenced them.

    Jeremy Dylan is a filmmaker, journalist, concert promoter and photographer. He directed the the feature music documentary Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts and the film Benjamin Sniddlegrass and the Cauldron of Penguins.
