I’m going to interview fans here, but I begin with myself.
Tell me about the day when you became a fan of Dolly…
It was a beautiful day when I found Kenny Rogers LP in my home, I watched the set list and found a song Island in the stream, it had a female voice in it, it was Dolly’s voice I preferred most, in this beautiful song. Then I wanted every album by Dolly. So I took my dad out for shopping Dolly albums. That day when I was seven years I became a fan of the most beautiful voice in the world. I didn’t know how famous she was at the age, now I know, she’s a legend.
Why is Dolly special for you?
I love her lyrics in the music she write. The way she treat peoples, her creativity. The way she talks about her dreams and how to make your dreams come true, like work your ass of and your dreams will come true, find a way to make’em real. Her Imagination Library is very interesting too, that every child from 0 -5 years, get a book every month to read with or without their parents, literature being an important part of their future life. She’s a great inspiration in many ways.
Do you have any dreams of meeting Dolly?
Yes, I want to meet Dolly again, she’s sweet and a cool lady with a great sense of humor. I love her seriousity and laugh.
Tell me about the day when you met Dolly…
I met Dolly at 8/28/11 in Gothenburg before the show began. It was a very special day. The guards didn’t believe me when I’m told’em I’m going to meet Dolly today, so they went to Dolly’s management with my letter from the management that I ‘ve won a Meet & Greet with Dolly. The guard was embarrassed, had a red face and a big smile when he told me witch time I could pick up my Meet and Greet pass. We were about 7 -10 people who got the chance to meet her. When I stood in the line outside the meeting room. Cheryl and Laura looked out from the room and said hi to me, Cheryl ran to me and gave me a hug, her happiness shined thru’ her eyes, it made me less nervous on meeting her boss lady. I was the second person to walk into the Meet and Greet area; I remember hearing Cheryl in the background, saying “It’s Diana” to Dolly. Dolly said “Hi Diana!” and took my hand into hers, and gave me a hug during the talk. What she said, it’s between me and her, it’s too private to share. When they took the photo, I screamed HUG!, and Dolly gave me a bigger hug, and I gave her a bigger hug, after that photo time, we talked a little and squeezed our hands. What a special moment. After the meeting with this amazing lady. I did talk a little with Cheryl, and the she gave me two awesome hugs. What a special day it was. A day I’ll always remember.
Do you have any more goals to make about your Dolly dreams?
I’m dreaming of autographed high heels worn by Dolly, that she’ll sign my photo with her and me, and to meet her again. Visit Dollywood in Pigeon Forge. Going to Nashville and be at the historic places Dolly been/ is at, like to see her offices, studios where she records her albums etc.
