Dolly Parton no longer plans to tour.
The hitmaker with “Jolene,” who will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on November 5, doubts she’ll be on the road again for a “real tour.”
The 76-year-old country superstar told Polestar: Maybe do a show over a long weekend or just a few shows at a festival. But I don’t plan on doing any serious tours anymore. ”
Dolly, who has spent “all her life” traveling to perform, now wants to be “a little closer to home” with her husband Carl Dean, whom she married in 1966.
she said:I like being close to my husband and home [Carl Dean]We are getting older and we don’t want to be apart for 4-5 weeks at a time. anything can happen. If I were gone and someone needed me, I wouldn’t be right about it. Or if someone was sick at home and needed me and I had to go out in front of the fans, I would feel bad if I had to leave the tour. ”
The Grammy-winning actress also has a side hustle as a children’s literacy advocate at her charity, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, but she’s also a Led Zeppelin-inspired bluegrass advocate. We hope to collaborate with 70s rock gods Jimmy Page and Robert Plant on the album.
Dolly said: “But I’m going to redo it for real money. When I did it, I kind of did it in the bluegrass style. I’m going to re-record it in. I’m going to stay true to the normal record.I’m trying to see if Robert Plant sings.Maybe Jimmy Page does the pick-up part.Great Classic People. , I’m looking forward to dragging some of the girls and boys in to sing some songs.
