Today it’s one year since I met sweet Dolly and saw an amazing show, Blue Smoke World Tour visited Copenhagen, Denmark, 8 July in Forum. I remember it was a really hot day and Forum’s air condition didn’t really work at it should do.

I recorded that day a 3 min from that Concert.

One is only poor, only if they choose to be
Now I know we had no money, but I was rich as I could be

Dolly’s Hair part 1

I’ve always admire Dolly’s hair, it’s so beautiful… Here I’ll pick few of my favourites during the years. Those I like most are those with curls and with some extra details like rhinestones in the hair. Cheryl are doing amazing work and I know it take time to do this beautiful hair.

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.

Backstage at Blue Smoke World Tour

Have you ever been backstage at an artist world tour?
If not, you’ve missed something spectacular…
Dolly travel with about 80-100 people in her entourage, it’s include so many professions. On every venues they coming to empty stages where they build up everything from scratch.
Dolly’s tour buses are special made to fit her by a by a bus firm in Europe. They’re leased so the buses rebuilds every time she’s on tour in Europe and Australia I think.
All I can see it’s that Dolly is surrounded by a great organization.
I can’t figure out how long time it’s take to plan a world tour.
It’s not all about the venues, it’s planning everyting from Dolly’s outfit, hair, hotell, etcetera .
