Heartbreak Express is a Dolly Parton studio album. Released in April 1982, the album returned Parton to a more fully realized country sound (a process she had begun on the previous year's 9 to 5 and Odd Jobs), after her late 1970's pop recordings. The album's first single, "Single Women", a slow-tempo honkytonk ballad about a singles bar, was written by Saturday Night Live writer Michael O'Donoghue, and provided a top ten single for Parton. The title cut also was a top ten hit for her. "Do I Ever Cross Your Mind" (a song Parton had written in the early 1970s but had never officially recorded) appeared as a double-A-sided single (along with Parton's rerecording of "I Will Always Love You" from the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas Soundtrack), and reached #1 on the country charts in August 1982.

"Hollywood Potters", Parton has explained to interviewers, came out of her experience filming the movie Nine to Five, as Parton watched many of the film's extras and bit players, who had worked very hard at acting through the years, but with very little success.

The song, "Do I Ever Cross Your Mind," was later covered by American Idol (season 7) contestant Ramiele Malubay. She sang the song during the Dolly Parton tribute week.

The cover photo was by Herb Ritts.
