Alive & Kicking TV notes: January 19th 2006 was Dolly Parton’s 60th birthday. As a tribute to her music several Sacarmento musicians got together to perform her songs. One of those artists, Brianna Lea Pruett had just turned 23 the day before. She performed 3 songs in her set (including “Love Is Like A Butterfly” and “Wildflowers”) as well as a duet with Jonah Matranga on the Dolly classic “I Will Always Love You”. The concert took place at Old Ironsides on Jan 19, 2006. Although not an actual Alive & Kicking TV shoot, it was presented by Alive & Kicking and organized by Jerry Perry before there was a TV show. This audio was recorded by Jim McLain with the photo montage put together by Jerry from pix taken at the show.
