Being Dolly Parton

I have always been a huge fan of Dolly Parton, not only for her clear voice, wonderful writing, acting ability, and business acumen, but for her nonsense honest approach to life.

Although Whitney Houston made Parton's song, "I Will Always Love You," famous, I love her version even more. There's a fragile beauty about her version that's so incredibly heartfelt; there is no tonal modulation, no melodrama.

Here is a quote that I came across today that is quintessentially her.

"I am not offended by dumb-blonde jokes, because I’m not dumb – and I know I’m not blonde."

--Dolly Parton
