Parton’s sympathetic lyrical portrait of a southern preacher deftly weaves classic gospel songs into its lyrics. There was an old-timey quality to her duets with Wagoner anyway, so the subject matter lends itself quite well to the old-fashioned production.
By now, we’re at the point where Parton’s gift as a writer has transcended any form of normalcy.
