People magazine premiered a new Dolly single on Thursday, August 12. The single, "In the Sweet By and By", comes from the upcoming compilation album Country Faith Bluegrass. The track features harmony vocals from Larry Cordle, Carl Jackson, Jerry Salley, and Bradley Walker. The single is being promoted as featuring "never-before-released" vocals. Producer Jerry Salley told People that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dolly was unable to get into the studio to record a new song for the album, but she sent him a "never-before-released" vocal and guitar track to which he could do whatever he wanted, as long as it met her final approval. Salley said he removed the guitar from the track and produced a new bluegrass arrangement around Dolly's vocal. The single will be available for purchase along with the album's pre-order on Friday, August 13. The album will be released on September 27 and features contributions from Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, Patty Loveless, Ricky Skaggs, Charlie Daniels, and more!

On Wednesday, August 11, Dolly announced that she has teamed up with James Patterson to write a new book titled Run, Rose, Run. The book will be published on March 7, 2022, by Little, Brown and Company. To make the announcement even more exciting, the book will be released alongside an album of 12 original songs written and performed by Dolly and produced by Richard Dennison and Tom Rutledge. The album will be released by Dolly's own Butterfly Records in partnership with a yet-to-be-determined label. Dolly initially let it slip that she was working on a novel with Patterson in July 2020 during an interview with Eddie Stubbs on WSM.
The companion album is the previously announced bluegrass album, which Dolly had mentioned would be released in early 2022.
