Dolly Parton dons a red version of her familiar "big hair" to play Leanna Taylor, a struggling singer who never quite made it big...(In show business, that is.) Leanna learns that before she can get on with her future, she has to deal with her past. She learns to deal greatly through music. With the help of fellow country crooner Billy Dean, Dolly spices this movie with great love songs and tender performances. A sure winner for anyone who likes good music, good fun, and the wonderful Parton.

True Dolly Style 5 Feb. 2002
By Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Touching, simple, real-life like story, wonderful movie, with gorgeous music with Dolly sounding like an angel. Like every other Dolly fan I would love for someone somehow to publish
a copy of "We Might be Inlove" as it has never been released outside of the actual movie, and there is no soundtrack...
As for the "Editorial Review" The movie was WRITTEN based on Dolly's song "Blue Valley Songbird" off her "Hungry Again" Album, and the whole bit is to explain Leanna's origins, and how she came to be where she's at.... and to explain what's REALLY been holding here back through the years, so if you get beyond your opinion that Dolly can't act you'll see there's another depth to this story.... Highly recommended to anyone who loves Dolly, music and or Romance!!!

Highlight for many occasions 2 Jun. 2003
By "jpersonal" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This film is a blend of raw humanity and brutal honesty. It was so refreshing to see the issues delt with done with so much style and not the usual sentimental [stuff]. As a huge Dolly fan and a director of performance myself, I have only this to say: Yes, Dolly is not a Liz Taylor, but few performers has ever reached her level of honesty in character and emotion when it comes to playing any character. Instead of boring crocedile tears, Dolly shows us inner pain - as does this whole film. This is a movie for people that understand what it means to hide your pain so that the show can go on. Deeply moving and profoundly liberating if you are able to leave soap operas behind you for a minute or two.

dolly's valley aint blue! 29 Sept. 2003
By "rjdavis1975" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
this movie was on lifetime and i thought it was great. then i bought the dvd and it's super-spectacular. she does a nice accoustic version of "wildflowers" and there's this weird easter egg where if you hilite her eyes and press enter then you hear only the music and the soundeffects. pretty strange.

"Wonderful Dolly Movie" 7 Dec. 2012
By Terrance Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
By the late 1990's Dolly Parton was not receiving any good theatrical movie scripts, but this one called "Blue Valley Songbird" came her way. Based on a song of the same title Dolly wrote for her underrated "Hugry Again" album in 1998 "Blue Valley Songbird" originally aired on the "Lifetime" network to huge ratings. Dolly plays a lounge country and western singer who is trying to make it big in Nashville and to land a major record deal. She is involved in a triangle between two men as well, one played by then hot Billy Dean who duets with Dolly on "We Might Be In Love", one of Dolly's most beautifully-penned love songs. The script is strong, the acting honors belong to Dolly of course and the film is very involving and features Dolly singing many songs throughout including her sensitive "Wildflowers", originally appearing on her "Trio" album from 1987 with Emmylou Harris and Linda Rondstant, "I Hope Your Never Happy" from 1985's "Real Love LP and "Runaway Feelin' from 1991's "Eagle When She Flies". All these songs are newly arranged and recorded just for the film. Unfortunately, there was never a soundtrack release from "Blue Valley Songbird" although there was and still is a great demand for it from Dolly's fan base.

The movie was shot entirely on location in Nashville and is the only time in Dolly's career that she wore a red wig for the role.
disappointing... 4 May 2014

I chose to watch because I love Dolly Parton, but story is trite and trivial.
Any of her singing is wonderful - though there was too little to give it a decent rating.
