  1. Dolly I’ve loved u since I was a little girl I’m a mountain gal myself. I have always looked up to u I know people have probably said the same thing but I really appreciate what you have done for us mountain fake. I will always love u too.

  2. I’d love to sing “Coat of Many Colors” with Dolly Parton on the stage of the Grand Old Opry before I cross over to the other side!

  3. in regard to the question about Dolly’s birthplace. Servierville is a town of Severe County and if you really want to be correct about Dolly’s actual birth place it was Locust Ridge Tennessee which is in Servier County. I clicked Pigeon Forge because it is the closest town to Locust Ridge. She was born in a cabin in a place call Locust Ridge on the banks of the Little Pigeon River.
