As morbid as it may sound, one of the only things that is certain in our life, is that it will end.

While some of us are just happy to pass on and let our memories live on in with our loved ones, some of us would prefer if we left behind a bit of a legacy. And that is exactly what the legendary Dolly Parton is doing.

Dolly has revealed in the final episode of her popular podcast Dolly Parton's America that she has a plan to preserve her musical legacy for all the generations yet to come.

"I’ve got hundreds, hundreds, even thousands of songs - a big part of them have never even been recorded," Parton tells he producer, around 21:45 in the episode.

"There’s enough stuff to go on forever with my music, to do compilation albums, to do new and original stuff. I am purposely trying to put songs down for that very purpose, to have a click track and my vocals where any arrangement could be done."

Without really going into details, Parton says she’d like for producers and songwriters of the future to be able to take her vocal tracks and overlay them with whatever kind of song they’re recording.

"Any producer anywhere in the world, when I’m gone, they could take my songs just the click track and my vocal and build a complete arrangement around that, any style. That will go on forever," she continues.
