|Dolly Parton singles chronology|
"Tennessee Homesick Blues" is a song written and recorded by Dolly Parton that was featured in the soundtrack of the 1984 movie Rhinestone. Released in June 1984 as a single from the film's soundtrack, it topped the U.S. country singles charts on September 8, 1984.
A reminiscence of Parton's rural Tennessee upbringing, the song was similar in theme to some of her earlier compositions, including "My Tennessee Mountain Home", though in this case, the song found its protagonist (like the character Parton played in the film) stranded in New York City and reminiscing about the Great Smoky Mountains in rural Tennessee.
