Dolly Parton on American Idol
Emily, your prenatal vitamin blogger here.
This week’s theme for American Idol is country. And not just any country music – Dolly Parton country music. This week should work well for Kristy Lee Cook.
Dolly Parton has 25 number-one singles. She was one of 12 children in a very poor rural family. This lady is amazing. She really came from nothing and made a life for herself. I watched a special on Dollywood one time and just listening to her talk made me admire her. She’s pretty amazing. And Dollywood looks like a lot of fun. Dolly Parton was on the Porter Wagoner show for 7 years. She wrote the hit “I Will Always Love You” for Porter when she left his show. I think that’s sweeter than if it had just been a love song to a husband or something.
I’m interested to see what the kids come up with for this week’s show. What will David Cook sing? A rock version of 9-to-5?
