Tell me about the days you met Dolly …

We met Dolly in 2001, at a cd signing for Little Sparrow.

Why is Dolly special for you?

We went to Dollywood throughout childhood, and always loved her, because our parents loved her. We first new who she was in 1983 when Islands In The Stream exploded on the charts, we were 8 years old. But our film Hollywood to Dollywood is our true tribute to her. Our story of what Dolly truly has meant to us in our lives.

Tell me about your documentary Hollywood to Dollywood…

We wrote a script for her, with a special roll we wrote just for her. We give it to her in the film!! And she blessed us with 15 of her songs in the film that carry us cross country to the 25th anniversary of Dollywood to try to hand her the script!!


The script is called Full Circle, and we hope all the hype around H2D, Dolly might consider doing the film one day! Celebrate the dreamer in you!! We are also excited about Dolly’s new book in November. Dream Big!! Because our dream came true having her and her music in the documentary of our life!!
