The RIAA gold award marks a first for Cracker Barrel and the first for Dolly Records in the U.S., with previous Gold certifications in Australia and the United Kingdom. "I'm thrilled that so many fans are listening to my songs and taking a look behind-the-scenes of my European tour,' said Dolly. "I had a wonderful time performing in London and I think the audience did too. It's exciting to be able to share my experiences with Cracker Barrel fans. And I have to tell you, I'm even more excited that An Evening With...Dolly earned the first Gold in the Cracker Barrel exclusive music program. That's just icing on the cake.'

"We're very pleased that An Evening With...Dolly has been so popular with our guests,' said Julie Craig, Cracker Barrel Marketing Manager.

"It's the first time we have released a two-disc set, and together they are just jam-packed with music including some of Dolly's biggest hits, on stage entertainment, and down-home conversations with Dolly. The DVD offers a rare look behind the scenes at one of Dolly's concert tours and complements the CD beautifully."
