Heartsongs: Live from Home is a live album by Dolly Parton, released in September 1994. Recorded at a concert at Parton's theme park Dollywood, the album featured a mix of Parton originals and traditional folk songs. "To Daddy" was a one of Parton's compositions that she'd never previously released (though her unreleased 1976 recording of the song later appeared on a compilation during the late 1990s); Emmylou Harris, who covered the song in 1978, took her recording of the song to the U.S. country singles top three. The campy "PMS Blues" went on to become a concert favorite, and received a fair amount of airplay as an album track. Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh sung Irish vocals on Barbara Allen.
