Heartsongs: Live from Home is a live album by Dolly Parton, released on September 27, 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 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.
