Hi Everyone! Welcome To My Next Megarate
The album chosen for this megarate is Heartbreaker by Dolly Parton
Experimenting with Adult Contemporary, Pop, Disco, and Country on this record, it was nonetheless considered heresy by the oldschool country establishment. However, it was significant in that it both made it easier for subsequent generations of country artists to crossover AND in its popularity in the LGBT underground and disco scene in the the late 70s.
It further pissed off the country establishment when she won Entertainer of the Year in 1978 at the CMA Awards after the success of this record.
