Retro Single Review: Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton, “Tomorrow is Forever”

1970 | Peak: #9

Another one of their matronly love songs.

“Tomorrow is Forever” has a few glorious moments in the chorus, where the melody swills like the best early Tammy Wynette records, but the rest of the record goes on forever.

Written by Dolly Parton

Grade: C





  1. Can’t wait until these retro single reviews run their course, so we can focus more on current music. Seriously, this came out forty years ago!

  2. Sorry you don’t like this series, Dan. While we know it’s important to highlight today’s music, the Country Universe writers also appreciate country music’s history. Our site stats show that others do as well, which is heartening.

  3. Current music is still being covered, but the retro single reviews are an ongoing feature.

    I think the retro reviews are fun and interesting. Music that came out decades ago is still worth remembering and discussing, and most of it is more interesting than the current material.

  4. I would have to give this on an “A”. I really like Dolly’s solo’s much more than her duets with Porter but I do think they were both great. This is one of my top 5 favorite Porter/Dolly duets. I also believe Dolly did this just a few years back with Solomon Burke. It was a very good version.
