Country music legend Dolly Parton is known for global hits such as 9 to 5 and Jolene, amongst many others.

However Parton is also an avid book lover and set up the Imagination Library, which provides free books for pre-school children. The scheme has been so successful Dolly herself delivered the millionth book earlier this month.

In this interview Dolly speaks to Front Row's Damian Barr about where her love of books came from. You can listen to the interview in full on Wednesday night's Front Row.
