Dolly Parton’s new song, “Girl in the Movies,” from the Netflix movie, Dumplin’, received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture. In addition to re-recording six songs from her iconic catalog for the movie’s soundtrack, Dolly co-penned and recorded six new songs, including “Girl in the Movies.”
