Great Balls of Fire is a 1979 country music album recorded by Dolly Parton and released by RCA Records. It is Parton's 21st solo studio album. The album's first single, "You're the Only One", topped the U.S. country charts in mid 1979 (#59 pop), while the follow-up single, "Sweet Summer Lovin'", was a top ten country hit (#77 pop). The album included two covers: the title song, a remake of the Jerry Lee Lewis hit from 1957; and a bluegrass-inspired recording of The Beatles hit "Help!".
In conjunction with Parton's 2007 European tour, BMG Germany (a division of Sony/BMG) released the album for the first time on CD. It was paired with 1980s Dolly, Dolly, Dolly on a double CD.
The album ended up being certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.
