Dolly Parton may only be working 9 to 5, but her music is working major overtime after a significant rise in streams following the premiere of the Netflix coming-of-age comedy, “Dumplin’.”
A rep for Spotify tells The Blast, Parton’s music streams has grown over 132% from where it was last month, and they’re crediting the Jennifer Aniston flick. The soundtrack for “Dumplin'” has also jumped up in popularity, with a 33% rise since the weekend.
“Dumplin’,” directed by Anne Fletcher, follows a plus-size teenage daughter of a former beauty queen (played by Aniston) whose idol is none other than the busty country legend.
Parton’s music is obviously prominent throughout the film, and she even showed up to the premiere to walk the carpet with the “Friends” star.
Another factor for the spike in streams, unfortunately, is the passing of Parton’s younger brother, Floyd. As we reported, the star and her family paid tribute this week by singing “Rockin’ Years” at his funeral.
