Dolly Parton recently took part in an amazing new album entitled, Unsung Hero – A Tribute To The Music Of Ron Davies. Ron, who passed away in 2003, is best known for having written “It Ain’t Easy” for David Bowie’s album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and “Long Hard Climb” for Helen Reddy and Maria Muldaur. Ron's songs have also been recorded by Three Dog Night, Dave Edmunds, Long John Baldry, Joe Cocker, Joan Baez, Dobie Gray, Anne Murray and Steppenwolf’s John Kay, to name a few.
Proceeds from this album will benefit The W.O. Smith Music School and provide instruments and lessons to underprivileged children. For more information see: http://www.rondaviesunsunghero.com/
