Cracker Barrel’s Exclusive Dolly Parton DVD/CD Goes Gold

The first-ever Cracker Barrel Old Country Store two-disc set, An Evening With…Dolly, has earned a Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) Gold award. The DVD/CD was RIAA certified just four weeks after its April 2 release date and its debut at #2 on Billboard’s Top DVD Music Videos Chart.

The RIAA gold award marks a first for Cracker Barrel and the first for Dolly Records in the U.S., with previous Gold certifications in Australia and the United Kingdom. “I’m thrilled that so many fans are listening to my songs and taking a look behind-the-scenes of my European tour,” said Dolly. “I had a wonderful time performing in London and I think the audience did too. It’s exciting to be able to share my experiences with Cracker Barrel fans. And I have to tell you, I’m even more excited that An Evening With…Dolly earned the first Gold in the Cracker Barrel exclusive music program. That’s just icing on the cake.”

“We’re very pleased that An Evening With…Dolly has been so popular with our guests,” said Julie Craig, Cracker Barrel Marketing Manager. “It is our first two-disc set and the first Gold for our exclusive music program. We just couldn’t be prouder of the quality and energy that Dolly brought to this project.” The first-ever Cracker Barrel two-disc set was the second project with Dolly Parton and is available for $11.99 exclusively at all Cracker Barrel locations and online at

“In true Dolly fashion and always on the cutting edge, Dolly was the first to be SoundScanned in Cracker Barrel’s exclusive music program, and now their first gold record,” said Dolly’s Manager/President of Dolly Records Danny Nozell.
