The book will release on March 7, 2022, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The 75-year-old country legend said: “All-new songs were written based on the characters and situations in the book. I hope you enjoy the book and the songs as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it all together.”
The book will also incorporate lyrics from the 12-song album in a story which follows a young woman who moves to Nashville, Tennessee, in a bid to make her musical dreams come true.
The author, who has previously co-written two books with former US President Bill Clinton, hailed teaming up with Parton “an honour” and promised the book and music collaboration will be a hit with fans.
Patterson said: “It’s an honour – and a hell of a lot of fun – to work with the inimitable Dolly Parton, whom I’ve long admired for her music, her storytelling, and her enormous generosity.
“The mind-blowing thing about this project is that reading the novel is enhanced by listening to the album and vice versa. It’s a really unique experience that I know readers (and listeners) will love.”
