Dolly’s impromptu acapella version of the song her mom sang to her, Bury Me Beneath The Willow, was just like the singer herself: completely genuine and beautiful. And it led Colbert to openly weep.
Dolly lightly teased Colbert about his display of emotion and he responded, “Like many Americans, I am under a lot of stress.”
Dolly Parton is a Modern-Day Humanitarian And Role Model
Is there anything modern-day treasure Dolly Parton can’t do? She is a singer/songwriter, actress, and humanitarian. Fans will definitely want to get their hands on a copy of the Time-Life DVD Retrospective of her career.
Fans can learn more about her new release, A Holly Dolly Christmas on her website. It includes Billy Ray and Miley Cyrus; she toured with the former singer in the 1990s and Miley is her goddaughter.
Dolly says, “I’ve known Miley before she was even born, I rubbed on her mama’s belly knowing that she was going to be kind of like my little goddaughter. Because Billy Ray and I had got to know each other, we performed together when he had ‘Achy Breaky Heart.’”

It would not be a stretch to say that Parton is country music’s patron saint. She is the first artist to have topped the Billboard’s Adult Contemporary, Christian AC Songs, Hot Country Songs, Christian Airplay, Country Airplay, and Dance/Mix Show Airplay radio charts.
She has 25 RIAA-certified gold, platinum, and multi-platinum awards, and 26 songs reached #1 on the Billboard country charts–a record for a female artist. Add to that 44 career Top 10 country albums (a record for any artist), and 110 career-charted singles over the past four decades. Parton recently reached #1 on the Billboard Christian Airplay Chart for the first time with a duet with Grammy award-winning Zach Williams. She was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1999.
Parton is a philanthropical force as well, having donated over 143 million books to children around the world via her Imagination Library and her children’s book, Coat of Many Colors, was dedicated to the Library of Congress to honor the Imagination Library’s 100 millionth book donation.
