Here’s What Dolly Said In A Recent Interview

In a recent interview with Ken Bruce from Greatest Hits Radio, Dolly revealed her motivations for diving headfirst into this rock and roll venture. Not only does she want to “earn her keep” in the prestigious rock and roll hall of fame, but this project has been a lifelong dream of hers. It’s inspiring to see the indomitable spirit of a woman who knows that dreams don’t end with success; they evolve and create new dreams in their wake.

Dolly told Ken Bruce from Greatest Hits Radio, “I always believed that if you wanted your dreams to come true and you were lucky enough to have that happen, then you gotta be responsible… you gotta keep the dream alive.

The big question on everyone’s mind, of course, is whether this will be the grand finale of Dolly’s illustrious career. Brace yourselves, Dolly Parton fans, because you’re in for a treat!

Dolly firmly stated that she’ll never retire, and as long as she and her husband remain healthy, she has no plans to slow down. In fact, she envisions the perfect ending to her legendary journey – a heartfelt, poetic exit right in the middle of a song on stage!

“I’ll just hopefully drop dead in the middle of a song on stage someday…hopefully [during a song] I’ve written,” Dolly said. 

With her signature charm and candidness, Dolly makes it clear that she’s not one to sit around doing nothing. As she puts it, “I’m gonna make hay while the sun shines.”

As the release of “Rockstar” approaches, we eagerly anticipate the magic that Dolly will bring to our playlists once again. With three already-released singles from the album, “World On Fire,” “Magic Man (Carl Version) ft. Ann Wilson,” and “Bygones ft. Rob Halford with special guests Nikki Sixx & John 5,” the excitement for the full album is through the roof.

So, dear fans, rest assured that the queen of country isn’t going anywhere. Dolly Parton will continue to enchant us with her mesmerizing melodies and infectious spirit. As long as her health and love for music endure, Dolly’s stage will be a place of joy, dreams, and pure unadulterated magic. Long live the Queen indeed!
