I caught the review of the “Transamerica” soundtrack from the Feb. 2, 2006 Hear Me Out column and wished to point out a pretty big error. It states that the song “Travelin’ Thru” earned Dolly Parton her first Golden Globe nomination. Actually, it was her fifth. She was nominated for Best Actress for both “9 To 5” and “The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas” in 1981 and 1983, respectively, and “9 To 5” also brought her nominations for Best Song and Best New Film Star as well. She’s never won one, unfortunately.
Also, the song this week earned her a second Oscar nomination, as she had been nominated for Best Song at the Academy Awards for “9 To 5” as well.
