A Dolly Parton statue may be erected at the Tennessee Capitol
If authorised, the statue can be paid for by the “Dolly Parton fund,” which would come with items, grants and different donations. The general public would have a say within the statue’s design, too, in line with Windle’s invoice. CNN has reached out to Windle for remark and is ready to listen to again.
A sculpture of Parton can be a decidedly much less controversial addition to the Tennessee State Capitol, which housed Accomplice monuments.
Parton hasn’t publicly commented on the proposal. CNN has reached out to her representatives and is ready to listen to again.
However to really feel Parton’s love for her dwelling state, one solely has to hearken to her 1973 traditional about her rural upbringing, “My Tennessee Mountain Dwelling.”
“In my Tennessee mountain dwelling
Life is as peaceable as a child’s sigh
In my Tennessee mountain dwelling
Crickets sing within the fields close by.”
