Dolly Parton has earned herself a Golden Globe nomination for her original song “Girl In The Movies.” Announced early Thursday morning, Dec. 6, the track was among the nominees listed in the Best Original Song category.

The track will go up against songs from Black Panther (“All The Stars”), A Private War “Requiem for a Private War”), Boy Erased (“Revelation”) and A Star Is Born (“Shallow”).

Parton co-wrote the song with Linda Perry for the Dumplin’ soundtrack. The songstress took hold of the film’s soundtrack as the main character often uses her music as a source of inspiration.

Among the songs on the soundtrack is a collaboration between the Tennessee native and Miranda Lambert¬†called “Dumb Blonde.” The song is a remake of Parton’s 1967 release which appeared on her debut album, Hello, I’m Dolly.

Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg will host the 2019 Golden Globe Awards, which will air live from The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, Jan. 6 on NBC.
