If you look up Dolly Parton on the internet you’ll see that she has weathered somewhat over the years. The 80’s really did a number on her. But, back in the day, she was this stunning caricature of womanhood. And in addition to her looks and songwriting talent, there are numerous accounts of her being a hospitable and genuinely nice person. My friend’s dad has a story about her singing for everyone in an airport when their flight was delayed several hours. Even the Beastie Boys, when recounting a party at Dolly’s house, insist she was gracious and ‘a very nice lady’.
