Dolly Parton’s upcoming novel will take a “dark,” autobiographical turn.

The Country Singer/Actress/Businesswoman — who have joined together with best-selling Alex Cross author James Patterson, 74, for her thrillerRun, Rose, run‘ – was recently teased for being a cautionary tale about the music industry.

“It shows a lot of the dark side of it – people who have been there, like me, you know that because you’ve lived it,” Parton, 76, said CBS Sunday Morning reporter Lee Cowan for a story that will air this weekend.

The novel tells the story of Rose, a young Nashville country singer/songwriter who realizes that fame and fortune aren’t all she desires. She also taps into a deep secret that could ruin her career.

“Did you see a lot of that? Some of it is in the book?” Cowan asked the CEO of The Dollywood Company about her new mystery thriller, out March 7th.

“Oh yes,” Parton replied. “You can see everything. All the managers who – people who want to rip you off, they try to steal your songs, they will cheat on you, they will do anything. I have seen everything.”

The book’s official description dramatically states that Nashville is the city “where she came to meet her fate. This is also where the darkness she fled from might find her. And destroy them.”

Parton indicated that she would like to take part in a possible film adaptation of the tome, whose Parson theme was originally suggested by Patterson in 2019.

“I’m hoping to play that character when we make a movie of the book, which hopefully we will eventually do,” she said.

The Country Music Hall of Famer will also release a new album of original songs inspired by the novel.

Parton will host the 57th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on March 7th, featuring country music stars Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett. She will take the stage with Kelsea Ballerini to perform a tune from the album Run, Rose, Run winners recently said people.

Other A-list artists taking the stage in Las Vegas on Monday include Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Kane Brown, Thomas Rhett and Maren Morris.
