Dolly Parton is still basking in the glory of her recent UK dates and her successful performance at Glastonbury.
The Dolly buzz has seen her latest album Blue Smoke – The Best Of climb to number 4 on the UK album chart which is no surprise when you consider 150,000 people turned out to watch her at Glastonbury. The number 4 position is Dolly’s highest UK chart position ever.
Dolly has also hit the headlines after a dog, nicknamed Doggy Parton, was found abandoned by workers who cleaned up the Glastonbury site once all of the revellers had departed. Proving what a good-natured human being she is, Dolly has stated that she will take the dog back to America if the original owners don’t come forward.
“I had my manager Danny Nozell call the Happy Landings Animal Shelter to make sure the dog is being treated and cared for properly,” says Dolly Parton. “At this time, nobody has claimed the dog and the dog is in great hands at the shelter. I will take the dog home to America if nobody claims her within a reasonable amount of time.”
Dolly recently announced that Try would be the next single from Blue Smoke – The Best Of and the track is already A-List on BBC Radio 2.
