I love Dolly Parton, as a performer and singer/songwriter, and the above song was nominated a couple years ago for an Oscar...in movie Transamerica.
KNOXVILLE -- Entertainment legend, philanthropist and East Tennessee native Dolly Parton will be honored by the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, with only the second honorary degree ever granted by the campus.
Thanks to my buddy Wes, at Uof T for the heads up...congrats Dolly! I wonder if Wes gets to meet her? This is the same school that Cormac McCarthy dropped out of and it kind of cracks me up that Dolly Parton is now a degree bearer.
Heres an absolutely terrible picture I took of a plaque honouring McCarthy's association at this school.
