Rhinestone is the soundtrack album from the 1984 film of the same name starring Dolly Parton and Sylvester Stallone. The Dolly Parton-composed soundtrack produced two Top Ten country singles: "God Won't Get You" and the chart-topping "Tennessee Homesick Blues". Parton stated in her memoirs, My Life and Other Unfinished Business, that she regards the soundtrack album as some of the best work she's done, though the film was largely regarded as a critical and commercial flop. She also cites "What a Heartache" as a personal favorite of all the songs she has written, and she has since re-recorded it twice to the Eagle When She Flies album in 1991, and the Halos & Horns album in 2002. It was released digitally for the first time on 4 December 2015.
