Dolly's first album since 2008's Backwoods Barbie record finds the singer giving her fans a boost during difficult times. "I wanted to do an album that would be very uplifting and positive, as well as inspirational," Dolly said explaining the upbeat title. "Times are hard all over. I think people need to feel better and I thought 'Better Day' was a perfect title because it says 'hope.'"
The album was released on the country star's own Dolly Records on June 28, 2011.
The Flaming Lips' "Do You Realize??" was named in March 2009 the official Rock Song of Oklahoma. Four years later, Oklahoma's governor Mary Fallin pulled the tune as the state's official rock song in a move her office said had more to do with priorities than musical taste.
