On the edge of leaving the 9 to 5 world, Marty Bandier has brought Dolly Parton into the Sony/ATV fold, inking a deal to represent her catalog and new compositions.

The deal covers North America and territories not covered by existing sub-publishing arrangements and includes the hits “I Will Always Love You,” “9 to 5,” “Jolene,” “Love is Like a Butterfly” and “Two Doors Down.”

 “Dolly Parton is a true musical icon and we are unbelievably excited to get the chance to work with her again,” said Bandier, the Sony/ATV Chairman and CEO. “Her importance, influence and legacy as a recording artist is recognized the world over, but more than anything she stands out as an exceptional songwriter with a peerless catalog of songs, which we are honored to represent.”

A member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, Country Music Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, she was most recently honored as MusiCares Person of the Year in February. A year ago today, Parton signed with WME.

Her manager Danny Nozell of CTK Management, said: “With so many years of Dolly's career being under Sony, we feel this is a great home for Dolly's publishing administration and we’re looking forward to the partnership.”
