Dolly Parton doesn’t want a statue of her at the Tennessee Capitol
However Dolly stated no.
“Given all that’s going on in the world, I don’t think putting me on a pedestal is appropriate at this time.”
A modest nation icon
Parton’s roots in Tennessee run deep.
The statue would have stood where Confederate monoliths have
According to the costs, the statue’s style would’ve been notified by the public’s viewpoint, and moneyed by the “Dolly Parton fund,” that includes grants and contributions.
It would have likewise stood where Confederate monoliths have.
“I hope, though, that somewhere down the road several years from now or perhaps after I’m gone if you still feel I deserve it, then I’m certain I will stand proud in our great State Capitol as a grateful Tennessean,” Parton composed.
However in the meantime, she stated, she still has work to do.
