Here she comes again

From the post:

“The (Kennedy Center) annual awards, announced yesterday, will go to country music legend Dolly Parton, rhythm and blues balladeer William "Smokey" Robinson, musical theater innovator Andrew Lloyd Webber and classical conductor Zubin Mehta.

In addition, the center is saluting Steven Spielberg, perhaps the most influential commercial filmmaker of his generation.” Blah blah blah

The important thing to note is that today is DOLLY PARTON appreciation day!
What better way to pick up a Thursday than to look forward to possible Parton sighting about town when she comes to pick up her award.

There are few artists that truly transcend their genres and none as ably as Dolly. So take a moment to say a little thank you to Dolly.

and yes that is a lot of make-up but she's earned it.

You couldn't be more right. I hate cowboy music but if Dolly is singing I'm listening. She sings with the voice of an angel (well made up angel, but angel none the less).

I'm so with you, Brian! Dolly is really superb (and I don't like country music). However, her singing style is unique and her kind of voice too.

She is the best. I am not in any way a fan of country music, but I will listen to her stuff.

She also seems like an extraordinarily decent, generous, and accepting person.

To me, she represents the very best ideals of both America and Christianity. That there are few others like her out there shows how rarely most of us live up to the highest potential.

I've been a huge fan of Dolly's since I was very young...even went to Dollyworld twice. Plus, she sings my favourite song ever...well, her version is my favourite ever...'I Want To Be In Love', originally performed by Melissa Etheridge.

So, in other words, yes, she does deserve this. Happy Dolly Day!

I agree with everyone! See how Dolly brings us closer to our fellow man.
