Parton had this to say, "I am so very proud and excited to have "Christmas of Many Colors" be nominated for an Emmy award. Special thanks to my partner and executive producer Sam Haskell, a wonderful cast and crew, Steve Herek (our producer) and Pamela Long for a great script. And a special thanks to all of the many fans that watched it."
The film's costar Jennifer Nettles added, "This project for me was a celebration of the family and the beautiful story of Miss Dolly Parton. Each day I played Avie Lee Parton was a joy. For 'Christmas of Many Colors' to be nominated and celebrated further by the Emmy's, thrills me."
About a year and a half ago my wife and I got married and the next day we moved to Los Angeles from New York City. We were making big life changes and starting a new chapter. Around the same time, a close friend of mine was also making a big decision and going through a breakup with their longtime partner. Based on these two situations, I got stuck on the idea of being in a relationship where you spend more energy keeping things the same than fighting for something better together. Being open and honest is hard when it might upset someone you care about, but I think it's important in growing together.
After my friend's breakup, I got started on this song and was really on the fence whether to tell a story where the couple stays together or not. I ended up writing from the perspective of someone who is in a relationship and is ready to cut through the fear of ruining something, with the hope to build something better.
Relationships aren't easy, and a bad past experience can weigh heavy on what we do in current relationships, as it does in the song. I mostly wanted to tell a story where being open and honest is a risk, but it's a risk worth taking if you want something real.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the EPright here!

She had this to say about the track, "Thorns is about the ultimately ephemeral nature of all relationships and my difficulty indulging them with acute awareness that inevitably they will be taken from me.
"At the same time, the longing to experience love and hope often overrides this common sense. When things fade, I can't help but feel like it was my own fault for ever trying to hold on, for ever feeling hopeful, for attempting to build something lasting with the absolute knowledge that it would never stand in the first place."

Douglas has worked with a variety of artists ranging from Fleetwood Mac legend Stevie Nicks to pop star Kesha. He says that the duo's songs are "often moody in atmosphere because we are both drawn to cinematic soundscapes. We appreciate music that is expansive and full of tension."
Clark had this say about the new track, "The song is a flirtation with danger. It is an expression of how in times of social change fear and menace exists, but change can also be quietly alluring. The song is a celebration of change as a springboard igniting passion." Watch the Ed Shiers directed videohere.
