Country music legend Dolly Parton's new album "Blue Smoke" has topped the charts in New Zealand and Australia following her success tour across the two countries last month.
"Blue Smoke" won't be released in the U.S. until May 13th, but the album has claimed the top spot on the all-genre album chart in New Zealand upon its release there.
The album has also topped the country album chart in Australia for four consecutive weeks and has reached No. 7 on the country's all genre album chart.
Last month, Parton launched her Blue Smoke World Tour with two shows in New Zealand and eleven shows in Australia. She also recently revealed that she will be performing at the Glastonbury Festival in the UK this summer.
Fans in the U.S. will be able to experience Parton's Blue Smoke World Tour when she kicks off a string of North American dates on May 22nd in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
She will then head to Europe in June for a leg that will kick off on June 8th in Liverpool and wrap up on July 11th in Stockholm, Sweden. She'll also visit Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, Germany, Denmark and Norway during the trek.
