Eight of Dolly Parton's biggest hits come to life in this anthology series

Amanda Bell

Dolly Parton is bringing her lyrics to life on the small screen. Netflix has released the first trailer forDolly Parton's Heartstrings, an anthology series that features episodes based on some of the country superstar's biggest and most beloved songs.

As the trailer shows, the star-studded series will hit a lot of different tones; there's an episode about an elite lawyer (played by Ginnifer Goodwin) who tries to broker a land sale deal in a small town, an 1800s Western with a hot outlaw (Colin O'Donoghue), and, of course, the epic love triangle at the center of Parton's "Jolene."

As Parton says in the trailer, "Songs, they're just stories put to music. The songs I've written, they're stories of my life. Every trial, every struggle, every smile, every sorrow. It's the melody of my memories. It's the sound of my heartstrings."
