Dolly Parton


  1. Aww she was a cutie! I have loved her song Jolene ever since Whip It came out, it is such a good car song. Oh by the way, who woulda thought she was Miley's godmother, not me!

  2. Things I did not know about her! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm visiting from the Tribe.

  3. Hahaha, "a few of her assets"

  4. Wow great facts. I didnt know she was Milys Godmother.


  5. Dolly kicks ass! I don't like Country music but Dolly is on my short list of exceptions. I have always preferred her version of "I Will Always Love You" far more genuine. A co-worker went to Dollywood last year and brought me back a Dolly coffee mug. It rocks!!


I love comments!
