Dolly Parton, 69, has ventured deeper into the world of social media— the legendary entertainer has joined Instagram! She made her big announcement via her Facebook account and included a few very familiar faces. Hey there, Blake Shelton.
Besides expanding her media empire a little more, Dolly performed her classic tune “Coat of Many Colors” on ‘The Voice‘ last night.
She is such a treasure. No wonder she’s the most honored female country performer of all time— eight Grammy Awards, 46 Grammy nominations, two Academy Award nominations, ten Country Music Association Awards, seven Academy of Country Music Awards, three American Music Awards, and is one of only seven female singers to clinch the Country Music Association’s coveted ‘Entertainer of the Year’ award.
Can’t get enough of Dolly? Be sure to catch “Dolly Parton‘s Coat of Many Colors” this Thursday, December 10th at 9/8c on NBC. The movie is based on the inspiring true story of Parton’s remarkable childhood in Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains. Set in 1955, the program follows the tight-knit Parton family as they struggle to overcome tragedy and discover the healing power of love, faith, and a meaningful patchwork coat that helped make Parton the success she is today. Interesting note, Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles portrays Parton’s mother, Avie Lee Parton.
