She also has a brand new stage musical, Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Christmas, which is getting its world premiere in Boston this year. (the ads for the musical include a little disclaimer that DOLLY WILL NOT BE APPEARING, sadly)

Dolly is OK in my book.

Love is like a butterfly
As soft and gentle as a sigh
The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings

Whenever I hear about her the mellow opening to her 70s variety show floats through my mind.

Honestly, I don’t think about her that much.

It’s amazing to think that she wrote I Will Always Love You and Jolene on the same day.

She thinks. She was so prolific during that period she honestly can’t remember.

She’s a national treasure even if it were just for her millions of book donations.

Just read about her life, man, and listen to some of her music. I’m a long way from being a country music fan, but Dolly is amazing.

Watch an interview, too - she is wonderfully warm, charming and funny.

I remember reading or seeing somewhere that Dolly once said that when she recorded “I Will Always Love You” she bought a Cadillac and when Whitney Houston recorded it, Dolly bought the dealership. :slight_smile:

Presumably others knew, but succumbed to the Madness before alerting others…

The real money is in song writing credits, not recording.

She gives millions of books away to kids so they learn to love to read. That’s more than enough to make me love her, and I grew up in the borderlands of Appalachia, so she was already a goddess to me for her music.
