The 71-year-old Parton may be the most quotable country music star in history, and many of those quotes and so much more can be found in the new book Dolly On Dolly: Interviews and Encounters With Dolly Parton, which hit book stores earlier this month.
This is a collection of interviews that appeared in a variety of publications including Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan and Playboy. The book spans more than five decades and captures the highs and lows in the life of a woman who started out as a dirt-poor girl from the Smoky Mountains and became the Queen of Country Music selling over 100 million records.
