Tell It Sister, Tell It: Memories, Music and Miracles is an empowering lesson in the healing nature of faith, the strength of belief, and the extraordinary effect one person's will can have on the world. Stella Parton is a member of one of country music's most creative families. Growing up the sixth of twelve children, she has brought her life experiences to the forefront as an entertainer, actor, songwriter, and motivational speaker in order to inspire others. An international award-winning recording artist, Stella Parton, is well known for her trailblazing in the past. She continues that tradition with the release of her new book, Tell It Sister, Tell It, by being the first country music artist to self-publish and promote a memoir. Not unlike early in her career, when at the age of 24, Stella wrote, produced and released her first hit record, "I Want To Hold You In My Dreams Tonight." At that time, few women dared to put on a producer's hat, but that risk gave Stella her first Billboard hit and propelled her career into the national spotlight. While the producer's hat was figurative, Parton, was also one of the first "hat acts," donning hats at all her performances, most of which she designed. Always a leader, never a follower, Stella recorded a self-penned song entitled, "Ode To Olivia," standing in defense of Olivia Newton-John, whose CMA Award win was widely unpopular within the country music industry at the time, branding Stella as a "maverick." While Tell It Sister, Tell It is not an autobiography per se, it captures glimpses of Stella's life as she shares her "memories, music and miracles." Stella has seen her share of triumphs and heartbreaks, but her unwavering faith has always sustained her. Throughout her career, Stella has raised countless monies for domestic violence shelters across America and continuously works with abused women to boost their self-esteem, yet most are not aware of her own abuse and kidnapping. While Parton shares some spine-chilling stories from childhood to present, it is inspiration that she wants to share. From miracle healings to God's protection in unbelievable circumstances, Stella speaks from the heart about it all. When asked why she wrote Tell It Sister, Tell It, Stella comments, "I wrote the book with the hope of empowering other women...no matter how far back in the race you may be, just keep marching to your own beat. You'll get where you're going right on time through faith, prayer and perseverance." Parton will also be releasing a companion CD with Tell It Sister, Tell It, comprised of self-penned songs written at different stages in her life. Like her diverse life, Parton's music is just as diverse, blending her influences of gospel, country, blues and Appalachian music into her signature sound. The stories of family, faith and victory written in the pages of Tell It Sister, Tell It are a journey into the strength that sustains Stella Parton. Inspirational
