Q: What's going on with country music superstar Dolly Parton these days?

—Gail Nichols, Wilson, N.C.

Plenty! She's starring with Queen Latifah in the new gospel music-filled movie Joyful Noise. "It's about choirs that compete, about the unlikely friendship between two women that are trying to save the choir in a little town in Georgia," says Parton. "It's one of the best things I've ever been involved with." The native of Sevierville, Tenn., 65, recently released a new album, Better Day. She also has a new book, The Quotable Dolly, which combines photos with classic quips and will benefits her charitable organization, the Imagination Library.
