Ovation is launching their original series Song by Song -- featuring exclusive interviews by the artists themselves on the inspiration and impact of six of their most popular songs -- and in this exclusive clip, Miley Cyrus talks about what makes her godmother Dolly Parton so special.
"The things people say about you that are negative are usually so ignorant that when she comes back with something that's funny, but it's also intelligent, it just shuts them down and nobody can ever say anything about her because she always can one-up them with something sweet," Miley says about Dolly. "... And not hurt anyone's feelings but say it like it is."
Song by Song: Dolly Parton will feature an exclusive interview with Dolly herself as she shares her most intimate memories and stories of six of her most popular songs in six dedicated episodes. It will also feature interviews with various artists and friends who have known and worked with her over the years, including Lily Tomlin, Kristin Chenoweth, Carrie Underwood, Kellie Pickler, Miranda Lambert, Kenny Rogers, Vince Gill and Brad Paisley to name a few.
Check out the video to hear Miley's thoughts on one of Dolly's most well-known hits I Will Always Love You.
Song by Song: Dolly Parton premieres March 10 at 8 p.m. on Ovation, and will also air on VOD and TVE starting March 3.
