Steve came in the room and talked mainly about Dolly’s outfits.
Those outfits you see Dolly wear at magazines and red carpets; it’s outfits she only wear once then they’ll be at the Chasing Rainbow museum in Pigeon Forge,  Tennessee .
The stage outfits wear Dolly so many time she wants to, she’s the one who decide witch outfit and hair she’ll have at the time, private time also .

This outfit is one from Dolly’s early days, Steve hasn’t design this one, but I remember he said that this one is his favourite because the uglyiness make it’s so genious beautiful,  he loves this outfit.
Steve is Dolly’s designer.

Next time I’ll write more about my favourite Dolly outfits and maybe add some hair by Cheryl too.
Hannah’s hair is so beautiful,  by the way you might find Hannah working as stylist in Nashville.

This was after Dolly’s first suprise show, and after her media session. Dolly wanted to say HEY to all her fans who was there in Dollywood, outside her museum Chasing Rainbow. I have had 3 days of my life there in Pigeon Forge that I count them as one of the best part of my life. 

I’ll tell alot more about my trip to Tennessee, Dollywood and Pigeon Forge, and show more photos I took of Dolly later…

National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress

Dolly Parton’s “Coat of Many Colors” has been added to the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress. Each year, 25 recordings from a variety of genres are chosen as being “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant” to preserve for future generations.  In a press release, the Library of Congress states that Parton’s 1971 recording “affectionately recounts an impoverished childhood in the hills of Tennessee that was made rich by the love of her family.”

Visit Dolly Parton’s Chasing Rainbow at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, there you’ll see the Coat of Many Colors. I love that song, the story behind the coat. 

Congrats  Mrs Dolly Dean Parton! and the future generations !
