Tennessee's native daughter Dolly Parton will start her first major U.S. tour in more than 25 years.

Titled "Pure and Simple," Parton's website says her set-list will include hit songs and weave in a few newer songs from her double-disc album "Pure & Simple" with "Dolly's Biggest Hits." 

The tour will cover cities across North America and are expected to sell out quickly.

Parton will also play songs that have not been heard live for decades.

“We’re so excited to get out there and see the fans again. I’m really looking forward to singing songs the fans have not heard in a while, as well as the hits, while debuting a few new ones off Pure & Simple,” Parton said.

The Country Music Hall of Famer is on one of the biggest hot streaks of her career after her hugely successful TV movie, “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” which appeared on Channel 3 and NBC. The movie attracted a network record of 15.8 million viewers and was the most watched movie on network TV in more than 3 years. 

“Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” will be released on DVD May 3.
