It looks like plans for a statue of country music’s biggest star may be put on hold. Last month a bill was introduced in the Tennessee General Assembly to see Dolly recognised with a statue in Nashville, however cold water has been poured on the plan by the lady herself,
“Given all that is going on in the world, I don’t think putting me on a pedestal is appropriate at this time. 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. In the meantime, I’ll continue to try to do good work to make this great state proud.”
We have found an even better way of celebrating Dolly’s unique talent as a songwriter and performer. We have given her a radio station of her own where you can get the true sense of her enormous talent by listening to all the wonderful music she has produced.
