Dolly Parton is honored with the Tex Ritter Award for her NBC Movie Dolly Parton’s Coat Of Many Colors. 

“Well I feel very proud and honored that the academy is acknowledging me and the Tex Ritter also…well, by the way I love him. I got to know him before he passed away but I though he was great but the fact that the Tex Ritter award goes to things like ‘O Brother Where Art Thou’ one of my favorite movies, ‘Coal Miner’s daughter’ one of my favorite movies, even the ‘Best Little Chicken House in Texas’ with me and Burt (Reynolds) year ago. This is a great honor to be able to accept something that’s so personal to me like the ‘Coat of Many Colors’ a true story from my childhood.” – Dolly Parton

One thought on “Dolly Parton and Katy Perry in a Collaboration at ACM Awards

  1. “Well I feel very proud and honored that the academy is acknowledging me and the Tex Ritter also…well, by the way I love him. I got to know him before he passed away…”

    I never met him but I did get to see him, once. He was in town doing one of those “package shows” that used to be so popular: him, Loretta Lynn, and Porter Wagoner. Evidently they were staying at the Holiday Inn I was working at and Tex stopped in at the restaurant for a cup of coffee and smoke break–he smoked a pipe.

    Later, I saw Loretta being escorted from her room, by 2 policemen, to a big, gold Cadillac with “Tex Ritter for Senate” bumper stickers all over it. He was running for the Senate at the time (he lost). I stood there staring at her like a sick pup–she is so beautiful. TV does not do her beauty justice.

    I agree with Dolly–any award with Tex Ritter’s name attached is an honor, indeed. His legacy in the music business is quite impressive, as was the man, himself.
