In honor of Dolly Parton’s upcoming album, Diamonds & Rhinestones: The Greatest Hits Collection, coming out November 18th, the MTA and Legacy Records had released limited-edition Dolly Parton MetroCards on November 7th—but they didn’t stop there!
As of November 14th, more than 6 locations across the Times Square subway station are now temporarily home to a vinyl wall design dedicated to the international singer-songwriter.
The wall installations showcase the new album’s staple butterfly with rhinestones for embellishments, of course. Passersby are encouraged to step in the silhouette of Dolly and snap a pic with her iconic hair. Show yourself off by “[wearing] the Dolly wig” when posting to social media with the hashtag #DollyForever.
Her greatest hits album will include 23 tracks, with standout songs like “Jolene,” “Islands in the Stream,” “Faith,” “9 to 5,” and her Butterfly Records 2020 single written at the start of the pandemic, “When Life Is Good Again.”
The wall installations will only be up for a limited time so be sure to check them out on your commute while you still can. And after taking your photo at the wall installation, try to get your hands on one of the 50,000 limited-edition Dolly Parton MetroCards available at select subway stations including Times Square-42 Street. Supplies are available on a first come first served basis.
Additional participating stations that were loaded with Dolly Parton MetroCards on 11/7 include:
- 34 Street-Penn Station
- 34 Street-Herald Square
- Grand Central-42 Street
