Cam got the chance to chat with the legendary Dolly Parton from East Tennessee in the newest installment of Cracker Barrel’s Front Porch series, about songwriting, the Imagination Library and what Dolly hopes her legacy will be, plus Cam also discovers the two have a signature hue in common.
“Yellow roses are her thing, she loves yellow! It can be her color forever,” the California native laughs. “It was insane! It’s crazy to meet someone that’s such a legend, for so many years, and so smart.”
Watch the two also play a rousing game of “Dolly or Not Dolly,” as they try to guess whether a witty one-liner belongs to the “I Will Always Love You’ songstress or to someone else.

On August 24, 2016 rising female artist Skye Claire (Mandolin Entertainment) and Sony Music Nashville recording artist CAM performed for the graduating class of the ninth annual Rising Through The Ranks seminar at a private dinner in Nashville, TN. The annual event, presented by The Radio Advertising Bureau (RAB), in conjunction with Broadcast Music, Inc. ® (BMI) ®, and the Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Radio Group (MIW), welcomed over twenty scholarship recipients from around the country to Music City.
The night was a highlight for the women in attendance. While enjoying the company of new friends, and radio colleagues, Claire performed her brand new single, “Pawn Shop,” which is impacting radio on September 15th.
“Rising Through the Ranks (RTTR) was an incredible experience that I’ll never forget. I was able to learn so much from some of the most inspiring and motivated women in radio. Being a part of the RTTR class of 2016 as a BMI songwriter helped me to grow as a person and an artist”. – Skye Claire
The two-day seminar annually held at BMI Nashville’s offices, focuses on motivating women in the radio industry and provides them with the tools and management techniques to help them carry out their role to the best of their ability. The classes cover everything from hiring and firing to branding and problem solving.
