Billboards interview with Dolly

Photo by Joe Pugliese

I’ve read one of the most great interviews with Dolly yesterday.It was this one from Billboards Q & A
It is has create alot of reactions just because…I really don’t know…What’s wrong to love every humans? After all we are only humans anyway.
Here I’ve picked some of my best of the interview…

How are you different now from the girl who came to Nashville in 1964?

I’m more successful now than I was then, but I still feel like the same girl. I’m just a working girl. I never think of myself as a star because, as somebody once said, “A star is nothing but a big ball of gas” — and I don’t want to be that.

Dollywood attracts lots of church groups, but it has also become a draw for the LGBT community. What does that say about you?

It’s a place for entertainment, a place for all families, period. It’s for all that. But as far as the Christians, if people want to pass judgment, they’re already sinning. The sin of judging is just as bad as any other sin they might say somebody else is committing. I try to love everybody.

What advice do you give women going into business?

You need to really believe in what you’ve got to offer, what your talent is — and if you believe, that gives you strength. In my early days, I would go in, and I was always overmade, with my boobs sticking out, my clothes too tight, and so I really looked like easy prey to a lot of guys — just looked easy, period. But I would go in, and if they were not paying close attention to what I was saying, I always said, “I look like a woman, but I think like a man and you better pay attention or I’ll have your money and I’ll be gone.” (Laughs.)

Now y’all thought I would quote all those reactions from Billboard, but I choose not to. I don’t see the point of doing that and giving’em that attention from me. I prefer to listen to all the great music Dolly have made and learn me more business from Dolly.

Here’s Dolly with her amazing staff . had interviewed a few people from her staff, but forget the Woman behind Dolly, Maybe they’ll say something in the printed mag that’s out on November 1…

Danny Nozell, CEO of CTK Management and Dolly Records
He says: “I wish some of the younger entertainers would take some lessons from Dolly because she is the most professional person. Is she tough? Absolutely she is. Behind closed doors, the gloves come off and the nails come out. At the same time, she’s the sweetest, nicest person I’ve ever met. But she’s a very hardcore businesswoman.”
Dolly says: “Danny is a go-getter. He’s always out there working. He reminds me a lot of myself in the fact that he never stops. He’s surrounded himself with a lot of great people — a lot of great people [who] make me look good.”

Sometimes you see folks who have a negative view of dreamers – people who sit around all day on their hindquarters and do absolutely nothing. These folks aren`t dreamers – they are just lazy. To me, dreaming is just part of being alive, inspired, and curious about the world.- Dolly Parton

Love this beautiful quote 🙂

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!!
