Fresh update on "dolly" discussed on Switched On Pop
"Vibe. Which i've told everyone part of the reason. Emily doesn't want to name. Names is because everyone's doing it and making a headline that says ex artists took exxon distracts from the larger project. I did independently reach out to songwriters on background and confirm that many of the biggest songs you've heard on even this show did not have any artists involvement but the demanded credit and a slice of the publishing. It is way too common. It happened to dolly. It's happened to emily in. It's still very much happening today. And twenty twenty one. So the pack near term success seems to hinge on both an artist for the sake of doing good and for the fear of getting called out all while trying to survive in a music economy designed to keep their cut of the pie to a minimum. It's kind of precarious. But emily says that artists are starting to come forward. Have you heard from people. Saying i'm gonna stop doing this. The chain smokers that. I don't think they just basically like signed it and we're like this is wrong. Sam harris from xm passengers had the most amazing. He posted a video on tv where he was like fully breaking everything down and then being like. I participated in this in the past. Like i'm learning so much. I'll never do it again. This is kind of a wake up call for for our industry for myself to say. Hey we need to really set some ground rules here and make things more equitable for everybody involved. I think some of the bigger artists who aren't like huge offenders of this done at once or twice are like grappling with preparing a response. That's something we've spoken to a lot of artists and artists managers about about them like having a response where they support this. That artists can then sign onto this letter. The messaging of the pact letter is very specifically from songwriters. And what would obviously tip this over the edge if are just come out and say whether or not have done this in the past like this has been an educational moment. I'm not gonna do this moving forward despite the uphill battle the writers have in front of them. Emily is hopeful because she knows she's done the thing you have to do. In order to prompt a change. And that's getting people talking to each other and taking action on the problem.

Currently over sixteen hundred. Local communities provide the imagination library to almost eight hundred fifty thousand children each live across the us canada uk. Australia and ireland. It's amazing she also helped to find one of the covid nineteen vaccines so i mean i could go on and on about dali yes. We absolutely could. Let's bring it back to the theme park. Dollywood was opened in one thousand nine hundred eighty six and one of the really interesting things about this. Is that for all its growth and offering of thrill rides. The park still retains a lot of history in roots. The park now known as dollywood has gone by several other names throughout the years and it still pays homage to the older parts. There are four years in the modern park river town junction. The village country fair in craftsman. Bali dollywood offers a fully functional. Gristmill where you can get incredible cinnamon bread and rolls and a fully functional chapel. That was actually named after the doctor. That delivered dolly truly. This is a part where you can ride some incredible thrill rides and get a glimpse back in time. So talk more about dollywood with us. We welcome amber. Davis publicist for dollywood amber. Welcome to the show. Thanks so much for having me and we really appreciate you coming on chatting with us. So robin our both. We're going to confess it. Where such huge fans of dolly. So can you talk about what her influence in the park. Looks like it could be major things or just simple touch here and there. Just give us a break. Yeah absolutely. I mean who doesn't love dali if you know anything else are dolly. We claim. She has a national treasure every believes she's just about as genuine as they come. We do see dolly from time to time so it's neat that the park not only bears her name. But there's there's things around that just remind you of who she is and what she means to a community here and at large but start dollywood really was her vision and so it's her. Her name is on it. She has the managing partners who know the theme. Park world but dolly. She really started this park to bring more people to the area to create jobs. And she's done both of those things so just the very welcoming nature of the park in a. We've were proud. Always tell people. Were the friendliest park. We won that award so many times that they actually retired at so now have the best park experience award from the golden ticket amusement today awards dolly wants us to be welcoming into you. See that and just the. The charm of the park itself are host week. We actually call our employees hosts because people who come our guest and so everyone who works there were hosting you so it again. In the culture in the nature of of who we are dollywood. You're going to see There's there's actually if you want to come for the dalai factor. You're gonna find dolly. There's a whole museums. Actually a fantastic museum chasing rainbows. It has things one of the things. We like to joke about dolly. Never throw anything away whether it's warehouse in nashville or if it's at dollywood we've got our hands on just really neat things. I mean her birth certificate and a replica of the coat of many colors. Actually it's a replica. Because you know. Intrigue fashion was continued to be handed down so that code is is longtime because it was down the many more kids after dolly but Her mom made another one for on us to put on display. So you're gonna see the coat of many colors. You're going to see movies threats and costumes from her movies. You're going to see you know dresses. Steve warranty to award ceremonies. You're going to see her awards museums. Fantastic there's also a replica of her. We like to call it the tennessee mountain home. So if you don't know dolly was one of or is one of twelve children so she grew in a very small home and so we need to put that in the context of walking through this house credible. You're like how limped year. The beginnings replica of the home. In what i mean by replicated. Her brother built it. Her mother decorated it. So it's not the home. She grew up in. But it is true to representations of of dali's. You're gonna say you know things like that in the park. There's there's there's smaller things like a popular. Eatery is drive in will read is actually a nod to the very first place. Dolly parton had a hamburger so easter eggs. You know the pines theater another location. That people don't know but that's where she had her first concert. So there's lots of things throughout the park that it's not in your face dali if you want that there are different areas. Not the whole. It's not all dolly all the time. So there's there's a lot but you have to kind of know where you're looking. Yeah i remember go into dollywood way back might have been the early nineties and then just recently. My daughter's chorale group went for to sing at dollywood. And i was shocked at all of the roller coasters. I mean there are rides galore. Can you talk a little bit. About what kinds of rides and attractions are dollywood. Mentioned some of it but talk about more than rides and stuff. Yeah you know. A lot of people don't realize that jolly win actually is a fantastic coaster park. You know a lot of people Thinking oh it's it's probably small little entertainment park actually does quite a few of the the big name coasters that the coaster enthusiasts talking about so yet we have our parking one hundred sixty acres. And we've got eight bay coasters so we've got lightning rod which you know we love and we're very proud to to reintroduce this year. I had lots of work in the off. Season practically brand new track thunderhead. That's a wooden coaster while eagle was the first wing coaster in the state So we liked to go. After unique rides we have fire chaser. Express which is a considered a family coaster. The reason is considered family is because it has a very low height requirements. Thirty nine inches. My actually two little boys and both of them were writing. Fire taser express when they were three. So you know on a coaster is kinda crazy but it's a fun unique ride. It launched as you out of the station forward but then by the time you're ending the ride you get launched backward. So that's it's a dual launch coaster. So that's a lot of fun so we we look for a lot of the The rides that are unique or that offer something that people haven't experienced

"I am excited today. Because you've got a guest on. This is a guess as a little out of the box. From who've you brought on before. And i'm really excited that rebecca salsas here and What what are you guys talking about today. yes so. I'm really excited. That rebecca was able to join us today. Rebecca is the executive director of the josephine county Library foundation and is really an integral part. The library there in just being county. Where grants pass. Where i live is located. And i just wanted to spend some time talking with rebecca about the value that libraries bring to our community and to our lives and so rebecca. Thank you so much for being here. Absolutely thank you for having me ma. It's our pleasure our pleasure so We tell us just a little bit about how long you've been working with the library and What your position entails right now so i have been through. Many different transitions At our library. And i've been working about eight years back. When the library was a nonprofit i was doing the fundraising and now i've transitioned over to the library foundation and i'm not the executive director and my job is to help raise funds to support special programs and things that are outside of the library. District's budget very nice. Very nice and and i know there's a long history there with what happened in josephine county with the library system Do you want to just give a brief overview of that of what happened to it. Seems like almost twenty years ago now with libraries being defended and then what what happened in the community after that absolutely so in two thousand and eight the libraries were closed and e funded and the community really rallied. They wanted to have a library in their communities so it was a grassroots efforts and they raced funds and was able to st- originally started out of you know checking out. Books are lending out books in their vehicles in a parking lot and then they were able to raise enough money to open up. The libraries and tons of work was involved with that and our library system. Which has four branches. One in grants pass one in williams one out in the ohio valley and one out of wolf creek operated as a nonprofit for ten years so phenomenal work. I'm and it was really exciting to see a community so passionate and really finding the value of libraries in a community because there there weren't a whole lot of libraries being run as nonprofits at that time. We're there no. Our library system is kind of like a unicorn very unique. We had over three hundred volunteers at one time. Doing all of that work which is just amazing. And even within it becoming a nonprofit. There were still three over three hundred volunteers that were checking in books. Checking out books doing all of that work. In fact we have about two hundred fifty volunteers. That still are doing that. Work today. so wonderful i my. My sister has has volunteered to the library. Here for years before covid. Kind of shut down the the day to day operations of checking in and out books but What what. I wanted to kind of touch on i. I remember this is this is my embarrassing story is probably sixteen. Seventeen years ago. I was much younger and definitely not as wise and i was standing in line at a community event here in jackson county and we were at the library and i had made an offhand comment about. Why do people need libraries anymore. and what. i didn't realize. I was standing right behind. One of the board members for the jackson county library and she took me to task for about five minutes explaining the value of libraries to the community. So i would love for you to just take a minute And i'm gonna humbly ask why our library still relevant today. It's a great question and we hear it quite often. Actually you know not. Everyone has the same resources in today's world and libraries are the technology access points for so many people and we see that even more now that we've endured through a pandemic and libraries as a whole. There's just so much more than book. Repositories the cultural and community centers. And our library here in grants pass even attracts more foot traffic then the local post office so when you think about all those long lines in the post office and how busy it always. Is your library here. Josephine community library is is busier than that. And really we service as venues for community meetings host workshops from anything of you wanna learn about coating to changing a tire and i could also take a task for a long time about the importance of libraries. But just a couple numbers to run by. You is each month. More than twenty. Two thousand items are checked out. And they're in homes within our community and in a county where at least a third of our residents don't have computer or internet access at home patrons lock more than fifteen thousand computer sessions in a year and have nearly forty three thousand personal devices. Connect to the library's wifi so it is a library is so much more than just books in building. It's really an important piece of the community where people can connect and grow. I just can't agree more promptly. What got me back into. The library was have having a daughter. She's six now. You know taking her back to the library to have those experiences in the children's roman being able to kind of just see the books touch the books and kind of just have that that feel of what a library feels like is just phenomenal. I know you. There's just so many Children's programs happening at the library is as well absolutely and we have families with kids of all ages coming to participate. Whether it's our summer reading program we have sensory story times the dolly parton imagination library program or registering kits through josephine county to receive free books. Mail to them Every month and and that that is just such a fantastic program. That was a partnership. I think with The library in rotary there in josephine county. If i'm correct but That is really phenomenal. That is any any family can sign up for it. Any child and from birth to five years old every month. They get a new book in the mail. Mail to them. Yeah it's it's wonderful and we have over two thousand kids currently receiving books every month in josephine county through that program and and thanks to all for the rotary groups in grants pass and and the many funders of that program. It's been great to to get that many books in the hands of kids in our in our

This not just focus on what's current but takes account of the longer term. It's content that pertains fairly because there's something universal and perennial about it in this way. Not only is it valuable to others. It also helps manual position in the marketplace. Currently there's a flurry of music. Artists alina back catalogs. The lives of bob dylan new young secure of done it even dolly parton thinking about pissing beat to be head so if you build an audience share content defines. Its home of your audience. Your back catalogue can also become something. That's desirable catholic. A work is your audience can always access. It's worth the grows and evolves alongside your audience.

If not your content you have a problem a back cutler means you invite days that you share today but also track record that shows. You're someone who keeps and has kept on giving me never become irrelevant by choosing to rest for used in the past with touring on home to the ever-growing increase in streaming. We're seeing a trend for music. Artists selling the rights at back. Catalogues artists unrealized by a cashing. In on the value of songs they produce david as uk based rotea fund.

This story of selling bank catholics chimes with how we in the beats a bass bass produce work for an audience. It proves that when you work is relevant to others this more reason to keep going the blog articles you produced back in two thousand nine nineteen. Maybe didn't get many views when they were first published. But that doesn't mean the not value sitting within your overall bank of work similar to music artists.

One single article became a webinar in april. Twenty twenty on your first ten email subscribers the next point is that it becomes and it brings people closer or from people. The proof of the work. You've already done helps you by helping them. Make a decision go back catalogue in contrast to say tha that competitors whose output may be more sporadic demonstrates perseverance. Next point is that it contributes to sales while message of this. You the media online. That i'm talking to you now is not around selling your business based on your content.

"Telly. Parents Miracle Will Continue in a moment those very murray spiritual person. Has You know not religious. But I'm very Connected that mass where I get my energy and that's where I get my creativity. That's where I get my strength. My stamina to to go on when things are hard I just Kinda draw them. That stuff out there that I feel is there for all of us. It's just that I connected to early and I just use it. This is Deli parents America. I'm Jaboomer Rod in my final interview with Dolly. We met at a small house that she owns in Nashville. Not Too far from where I grew up. Actually honestly I thought Oh my God. I've passed by this house a million times on the way to school. I had no idea. We sat on a blue cow coach. She was dressed in all white and asked her Some more questions about her faith and also about the future so many people we spoke with referred you a Saint Ali but it does make me wonder like what do you think happens when you're not here and it's just it's just Saint Dolly and it's no longer Dolly Dolly. Well the first of all. I'm no saint judge me I'm no saint but for me as far as what I hope my music will be left behind. I hope that that it will always live. I think all that a lot of that other stuff may fall away but I would like to thank left some good good pieces of music. I think as long as time less people will be doing music all kinds of different ways as we were talking it became clear that this question that I had thrown out what happens next. Is something something that her and her team are thinking about. On all levels she hinted without really elaborating that They are thinking about business deals regarding guarding her publishing catalog. They're already going into the vaults Emma lucky person because I've got hundreds hundreds even thousands of songs and a big part heart of them have never even been recorded. There's enough stuff to to go on forever with my music to do compilation albums to do Actually a new original stuff and I'm purposely trying to put songs down for that very purpose to have a click track and my vocals were any amy any arrangement can redone really so I think ahead. We'll we'll be hearing Dolly albums of new material for fifty years from now on hormone is concerned. It could be that will hear your vocals over someone else's music yeah could produce that anyone any producer issue anywhere in the world hot producer. When I'm gone they could take a my songs? Just the click track of my vocal and build a complete arrangement around that in style. Any anything that would cause as you know if you've got a good click track where you've vocal anything can be done with that. Yeah so that will go on forever. I mean I'm one of those people that believe in being prepared. I don't WanNa ever leave my stuff in the same shape like Prancer aretha or anybody that don't plan ahead you know with that as far as what happens after you know we go on like I say I'm I'm no saint so I'm hoping just as a Christian faith person you know that we go onto a greater thing that we are believed there were all part of that great van plane and I'm hoping to get up there and do some more writing and singing and play my those golden harvest and Rice amores have mall mation involve them Golden Streets of glory and keep doing it forever and ever and ever. So I'm GonNa get in the Angel Band for sure I'm going to play in the Angel Bain and I'm GonNa they play the heart but there you are one laughs. How I really don't know where we go? I don't know if we You know if there's such a thing as reincarnation icon and believe all that kind of stuff. I'm just open to things and when I was he's working with Shirley maclaine who had that book out about reincarnation and somebody said Oh. How'd you ensuring a claim get along? We get along fine. I said I don't know that. I believe in reincarnation incarnation and I didn't believe in it when I lived before so. It's a joke. Oh yeah sorry anyways. So I'm just saying you don't really I know you just hope and you have faith. That's what faith is but I believe that it's GonNa be better. I don't I think this is not the end to me. I don't think it's the end of any of us. I think we're recycled and if nothing else we just go back into that great flow of divine energy and hopefully seven around in other wonderful ways. It's what I hope. uh-huh excess from Sunday.

"WanNa close the series with my favorite Dolly Story Story Hands Down the story of the moment the Dalai became Dali. It happened in a church now. I'm not someone who's ever really gone to church coach. My family came from place. Torn apart by religion we avoided churches and You know over the past two years of interviewing Dolly. I was hesitant to sort of get into her faith. Just kind of figured it would be something. I wouldn't really be able to understand because you know religion like politics. It's just one of these things that divide us right but then she told me the story about this thing that happened to earn a church. And it's just kind of spooked me a little bit sports. After one of the only reasons we ended up talking about it was because of that. Ut class the dogs America class. We'll never know who Dolly Parton is. Who Dolly is to Dolly Parton is probably probably never at the end of that interview as humanly? I and I and the students were all sitting around. We kind of got onto a thing. Sit Down Ask your question okay. Let's fall that inspiration. So what's the question. What question would you want? What question would you wanna ask her? I feel like there's this hidden side of her and I just like hope that she's doing well I hope she's okay. I think I put myself in her shoes to be exhausting. I don't even know I would ask her. This is slaney by the way laney goodwill at ask her she has an era Gretz about like the way that it all played out. Do you have any regrets. But the way it all played out no well I guess it's almost like everything hang on ever done good or bad seemed to be the thing to do at the time and to change one one thing could change the whole thing so I don't think you can live your life like that to regret. I'm not an yeah. I regret it. If I've heard anybody else on my journey I regret maybe getting caught two things. I'm not not should've Windu it but I'm not saying I wouldn't do it again but anyway so to be honest I guess the real answer to that is no what were you. Where did you get your not going to tell me what? What did you get caught at? The you're supposed to be getting caught at. You can't know everything enough fair enough. One of the other questions of chaos tattoos that her body is covered in tattoos. The fair Cheema was the one who threw that one out. Is it true about the tattoos. I have a few tattoos on my body. They are not. They are not not meant to be tattoos for the second tattoos. I'm very fair skin and when I have any kind of surgery or any kind of scarring well it turns kind of discolors. Can't get the color so I. When I first started getting a few little things done I had a few little tattoos to cover up some scarring but I'm not tattooed all over like a bike woman or anything but I do have a few? But they're very delicate. I don't have the dark doc. When they're all pastels can ask? What of what or is that too personal? Well I have butterflies fly I have some lace and some little bows like that okay. All that was is really just prayer. Lead the question that drove us to the story I mentioned came from student. Name will oaks and this isn't really much a question. I just want to have a discussion with her. Like what is the theology of Dolly Ali pardoned behind closed doors. Like what exactly like it is. Are you like the the church ladies. We've been talking about is that you. Is there something deeper there. I just wanted to get to the to the core of her belief system. Not In the way of again judge judging I just WanNa know I honest to goodness. What is the theology of Dolly Parton behind closed doors? Well now I am not. I'm a very spiritual person I do not believe. I don't like talking politics. Not all talk and religion are certainly don't like trying to cram my religion down anybody's throat because I'm not that religious but I am very spiritual. How do you practice your faith? I don't practice it. I'll live it. I think people will try too hard I talked to godlike. He is my best friend. I just go around talking to some towns. I think if somebody saw me in my house I think I was an absolute lunatic. I just talk to God and sometimes if something great happened just walk on raise my hand give God half. I've five or thumbs up. You know it's like I just. I don't feel like I have to go to church to do it. I think churches in our hearts. It's wonderful for those that want to go to church as a wonderful thing. But I don't think I have to and it's like I I go when I want to or when a can or special occasions but I live my faith you know. If if you try to shove that down people's throats are you come on goody goody that ain't GonNa work you live by example you teach by example you learn by for example. Don't you think and even though cynics to say oh you know there's no such thing is gone I said well that's your that's your problem. I know the Ridge did for me. And that's what works for me. I would scare me to death. The thing that there was nothing bigger and better than me that there wasn't something out there that we could depend on. Of course you look at what will if there is a god. Why would he let this happen to that happened well? He's not letting things the things happen. He gave us free will. We've the ones that screw up all the time we started talking about this initially Bought the Dolly was sort of addressing that big question that people have about God and a belief in God like how can you believe in. God How can God exists and so so many bad things happen in the world. How would he allow that to happen and initially I thought she was nodding at that idea that sort of idea that God created the world but then voluntarily gave up some control to US mere mortals? And so when bad things happen it's not necessarily his plan. It's sort of his permissive. Have will as it sometimes called. I don't know I don't even try to analyze it to that degree I just I just accept it for me but as we kept talking it became clear her faith. Life is way more particular and idiosyncratic than I would have ever expected Baba says late. Ever Men's seek out his own salvation and that means needs to save himself. Whatever it takes to save you and if you can get to that place and you find your own piece then you can do good for other people if here at peace within yourself did you? Because I know you grew up in a in a in a very devout family with church. All the time did you. This is a moment when you stopped going in a game or internal for you. Was that Matt. We grew up in a fanatical. Church cost a holy roller but I still love it. In fact I right. I'm fixing I'm doing a show Just sold a show called sister shine for lifetime where I'm playing a female. Evangelist always wanted to do do it. And it's about a woman that Kinda gets tore down because of that the religion but I just always they that Hellfire damnation that we went through. I used to scare me to death and I was too scared to you know not to ask but I never I never did. I DIDN'T WANNA go up and I just was scared of all that and I used to pray. Just pray for God to show himself Jeff to me or to let me see what that was about because I would say I would talk to him even then I would say a discard me to death. You know in the church. Excuse me I don't I don't WanNa be afraid of God because then they say we're supposed to fear him and then they say he's our father and we're supposed to and I was confused fused with all that and she says when she saw people go up and get saved and speak in tongues and do the whole thing she would always feel like. Why is that not happening for me? What am I doing wrong? Never never felt like I was saying I never felt like I was safe that I was getting. They were supposed to be getting. You know 'cause I just did never feel like I had reached that place but then there was this old abandoned church down the hill that was described to this day. That is that stands out my mind just like it happened. There was this whole church at the foot of the hill where we live in and just had an old peon it. All the winds were all busted. People use go down there. Drink make out of the picture painted on the walls. touts twelve years old she would wander into that abandoned church and she writes in her autobiography. She would fixate on those pictures. I spent a lot of time looking at them studying the way the sexual official organs had been drawn in that time China. Add to them doodle on the drawings. Just I love that old church in every time I go down there it was just a piece in that chart.

pour water on the around water to get the battery toward because daddy liked to try to give grand owing aged used to be one of the old Jew we along Grand Ole opry in the valley gone and that was in in those days but not always like our television at this point in the interview all my big plans just kind of went out the window and she just caught and I learned about Sam and my poor little fingers we played Banjo you know in a lot of songs talked things she talked conjuring these clouds of memory news Asahi's me were going to go for ninety minutes straight and I could barely questioning we lived up in the hills and it was very rule my daddy used to go in and out of out of the hills where we lived on horseback candor on food we didn't have running water unless we get it which I make jokes about our own things and they'll work the fields throwing you're calling in your engine Your Tobacco Mason Hogs Tang high-risk durant an old yeller milk cows and my brothers used to hunt some of us girls used just part of the woods the use of these barrel just running around everywhere still one story about how one day when she seven or eight she jumped over the fence landed on a broken Mason Jar in almost lost toes I remember them pick-me-up Menendez Brothers home you down Mama Porn Kerosene mottos mama got her sewing needle but they helped me down and Mama sewn back together enough to to her they and you know it was they they held and they're fine but I have scar can see those guard go to run across all three toes and there was another same thing yeah Ah Yeah you're going to get any questions in just one question that I've talked to the store now grew up pentecostal in her about snake handlers right sure so some of the church is back in the day did snakes my daddy dreadfully sitting that first dollar interview I remember feeling like Whoa what is what was happening I couldn't form sentences seriously like when I listened to that tape if you're going to get any questions and that's great I mean it's embarrassing I'm like Jad ask a question this is what you do ask a question but I couldn't too little bit like that old video game legend of Zelda Carina of time where Zola's starts playing the flute and all of a sudden your character starts swaying and loses control and there's nothing you can do actually let me advisor analogy that's not right because I don't think she was doing anything to me she had just gone into a state of mind it was very talks according to be around hello you there I am here and this was not an uncommon experience my producer Shimon Guy we spoke with a lot of people who have in various ways fallen into this dream usually when they were kid here's just one example Wendy prior grew up in British Columbia and she told us that when she was a girl my mother started dating my stepfather and part of what he brought to the relationship was the VHS player for Smith's he gave me Dolly Parton live in London and I was obsessed says the moment she hit play she immediately fell into the stories she'll atoll about her childhood like to tell you a little bit about me for those other than I don't know Agra the great smoky mountains of East Tennessee she's just captivating in one he says from that point stunning that point forward the next three years she only wore closed that she thought child Dali would have worn like tattered sweaters headdresses I called them prairie dresses they also had these Penny loafers that I wore until the bottoms scraped off so there's holes in the bottoms I was so proud of this because do the coat of many colors there's holes in both her shoes and it felt so great that I would walk around and feel the gravel and you are only those clothes for three straight years yeah wow and my mom's an actually grew up with less was totally distressed by this she I remember her saying to me like people are going to think I'm not providing for you and she actually ended up throwing out my shoes while I was sleeping because I wanted Latte her get rid of them so stories like Juan Diez end my own can awkward experience that made me wonder what's behind that Tennessee mountain trance I mean obviously Dali is a five alarm fire of charisma and talent to that's part of the answer most of the answer perhaps but the rematch self of that Tennessee Mountain home why does it work so well on so many people in so we headed east we drove three hours from Nashville to pigeon forge Tennessee to what is arguably the center. the Dalai verse welcome to Dollywood the heart of the smokies amazingly some of my New York friends and never heard a Dollywood so for those unfortunate souls I will simply say it is a theme park devoted entirely to Dolly Parton guys at eight rollercoasters things like that get your water rides also got the play the sound but it's so cool an actual working steam engine is one of the last in the world that Burns Actual Coal right in your face appalachia facial that but mixed in with all that stuff oh my God there's the chapel chapel named after the doctor that Bird Dali yet all of these buildings that are themed after different parts of Dolly Story for example the a replica of the chapel where she was born was born it was snowing and we live way back in the hills and we had this doctor was also a a minister they had said for him and my dad didn't have money to pay for him so I was paid for with a sack of corn meal do you have a giant tree climbing over the monkeys and climbing all over gathering at the center of the park and I guess based on trees used to climb on used to always chase butterflies when I was a little kid user trail and get lost and butterflies Oh my God they're a butterfly is everywhere in the park there butterfly statues there live butterflies

because at this period in time his in his era on the charts his time was was getting started getting real big her star was shooting in his was thinking and Puerto was having problems with that Dolly told me that when it came time for them to record Joe Lean in the studio porter wouldn't let her play the guitar he wanted to impress the me positions with that lake and so I remember poured peaches to the the guitar players that session and it was not coming out right at all I remember I was just getting more upset and were upset so I remember just getting the Guitar enforce that I let me just show them the league you right in your autobiography that the bigger you got the more threatened he got well that's natural because it was his show when it got to where I was wanting to have other producers I wanted to expand I wanted to have crossover records and I wanted to have management where I could do other and I told him I said if you'll let me out can stay in the show if you let me have my own things I can we can still work within the show let me get a manager and producer to do some other things outside of what we're doing I'm not trying to take anything from you the army I'm just wanting to expand if I can do some things if you let me do some stuff within the show we can still savage this and it'll just make your show bigger earn it'll make us bigger and better he couldn't handle it though and so and I understand that so why why would you hate fake for him yeah I'm speaking for me you're not helping to poor you're talking to me worse but it's the understanding that I guess I'm asking a question about this is a guy I mean you see it the videos to he's got his arm around you there's a there's a power thing happening for sure well it's more complicated that is just I mean just think about he had this show for years he had he didn't need May to have his hit show he wasn't expected me to be all ours her when he hired me as a singer he is just hiring what he thought was a rapper little girl but I was a serious writer he didn't know that I was a serious entertainer he didn't know that I'm he he didn't know how many dreams I had it was just one of those relationships where you hated him one day loved the next and it just got so intermingled and so what it up that you don't even know what your real feelings were I don't know it's almost it was just crazy it was like a marriage a sort you couldn't even begin to describe it all throughout the years people have speculated that there might have been more going on between them behind the scenes probably Mobley you never knew much probably even members of the band wondered around with Dolly or is he having affair with Dolly Parton this is Puerto on the Ralph emery show well would you care to speak to that there's so many answers corral really there's probably about as many answers as they are people asking questions about their any relationship is like a house with an upstairs it's got two stories and this is Dahlie address those rumors and our auto biography I know that everybody that knows anything about me and porter would like to know the true story of what happened US nobody would like to know that that more than me and border in any case this next bar this is the point in the story where you can tell it several different ways variety Sarah smart it sounds very much like an serve relationship this is a classic abuse story she says if you scroll through their youtube performances from nineteen seventy three seventy four this is when Dolly in Puerto Been Working together for about seven years you see these moments there's this moment tour she's got her guitar he's GonNa play on our next to it so he's sort of suggesting like aren't you drop your guitar because now as man I'm going to be the one strumming the strings and she's like I'll just hold onto it blank like no pun good you son of a Bitch Sarah points to another moment same episode saying one of her great song just doing an Intro dollies offscreen you probably know and she sort of butts in with joke shot he tells her to shut up and his face definitely falls for micro expression rage Rebecca again me and my side cakir she just keeps me on the slide not yet but go in to the do you ever hit me and I find it out Dolly Parton Hyun just makes these casual jokes about physically harming her Joe and that reminded me of the statistics that tell us that when a woman is about to leave an abusive relations chip that is when violence escalates is that you guys doing schtick or is that actual hostility way too many things to ever untangled all of it now to be clear I don't think there's anything here that would suggest actual physical abuse happened it clearly they went at each other in every other way we just did not we'd just whitlock met in our social and he's so definite and who he is well the thing about porter and this is this is where you hit humanity is that the times you know and and so many country singers the little girl singer on their show around Nashville and they were kind of Lord and Master and whatever they say went if you work for me you're going to do what I say you're not going to work on his right right right this is Puerto being interviewed by her sets in on his show sets in country I'm not hiring an advisor to coming into thread I'm hiring someone to work for me I signed the check I pay them because I love dollars she's a beautiful lady in every respect but it don't matter if my Momma is working on my show Mama's going to do what porter says and there was no questions asked well anybody that knows anything about her nose with that ain't how it works with her he would say damn show I'm no this is my damn life and we're not talking about the show up top about my life I'm talking about my future I guess they here's the girl singer forever I wanNA individual career I am my own self I didn't come to Nashville to be part of a duet and be a girl singer in somebody's group I won't own ban won't show I want my own dreams I won't moan but it was like well did you know so well yeah you've made me mad again you've made me a lot of things and I'm not taking anything from you I would say I appreciate everything you've done on ever promised forever and we just were not not happy either up for not happy it was there a breaking point you can call yeah just finally just thought I'm going to break if if I don't go because all we were doing was fighting and it just wasn't working I couldn't even I couldn't think I couldn't sleep Caen and he wasn't happy either and I thought this is just saying we've got to do something so that's when I win I and said you know I thought well he's not gonNA listen we'd fought I'd go home crying and so that's when I

"Uh-huh I spoke to Dolly Parton in November of two thousand seventeen care squeaking ask this week you're right I know squeaky caregivers degrees but we don't have time for a new job showed it we sat down in a studio in Nashville when they get tired of my best one but I play a lot of mountains on heart that kind of stuff and you play wind to you blurt well that's the penny where so we do a little bit of Appalachian thing that we L. Come up come up to the really good lines really good so explain the reason I wanted to start with this growing up in the early eighties a me one of my main associations with Dolly before this project was that she was sort of a punchline like she was her own much like you know like I remember she would go on Leno or letterman you look terrific an upstairs earlier today we were discussing your weight talk about her wait for a little while they didn't talk about how she looks then inevitably always asking if they're real and they start talking about her breasts worse than giraffe with a sore throat and they said no what and answering dollar partner with a chest cold here's another apple the headline on the other major new story today to which we intend to devote some time is very simple hello dolly the first plane sheep Jonas Dolly the sheep this is Helen Morales author of the book pilgrimage to Dollywood scientists managed to clone sal single memory cell from a six year old that cell was from a mammary gland so these mental be good idea thought it would be a good idea to call the Dalai after Dolly Parton Dolly I don't think I need to explain anymore than that but the sting in the in that story is an characteristically Dolly Pan is that when she heard about this she invited the the sheep wanted served it scientific purpose to come and live at Dollywood so when you go on these shows and they make a joke about you and you double the joke you are what is that part of me thinks pardon me loves that part of me thinks wouldn't you just tell these people like come on I have written five thousand songs asked me about my songs so I don't know I have two thoughts when my tits hanging out showing them pushing them out there and not expect somebody to make some kind of comment on it and I know what they're thinking so rather say it before they do and then we'll get that off our chest so to speak right up front and no I've said it before but I really do like I just think you know I mean this is how of course you're gonNA notice it see I do that too for the public I mean it's like a little comedy thing in that last sentence by the way Dolly was actually referencing something she'd wants told Barbara Walters like years ago show business is a money making joke the people you know have have thought the joke was on me but it's actually been on the public so yeah growing up and I think I speak for many full of my generation when I say this many men Dolly Parton was seen as this kind of joke maker this cloud of jokes always rolling around her jokes people would make about her that she would make herself maybe on the public I don't know but her persona was so big that often is the only thing that got noticed but then I'll be honest one of the first bits of guidance that we Hank Williams has been taken seriously but Dolly Parton has.

I was seeing people in drag church ladies lesbians are you holding hands little girls who were there with their families you had a whole audience of people who asked lutely their velocity were in opposition to each other and Co mingling everybody's politely so that was one thing that attention that in this very divided moment dolly seems to maybe be a kind of unifier and after doing a little poking around the data does Kinda bear this out if you look at her global q score this is a measure of how well people thinking about your brand globally what they do say symbol of very diverse sample of people they ask me bunch of questions and out of all of these different brands that are out there all these different performers she is in the top ten globally in terms of everybody's favorites but she's almost number one when it comes to lack of negatives if that makes any sense people have the least amount of negative things to say about Dolly Parton then anyone besides maybe Adele and by the way this q score data is fascinating I haven't dug into it too much so I can't claim to fully understand it but beyond say number fifty two what Lady Gaga forty-one wild anyhow the second thing that happened that made this series possible I'll be honest with you guys was a strange twist of fate Dolly Parton suffered a few minor injuries in a car crash the accident happened just afternoon in Nashville on Monday twenty thirteen delegates into a minor car accident up at Vanderbilt Hospital and one of the people who ends up giving her medical advice is my dad and they became friends she shared this me by the way was totally fine with me sharing it but it was very unexpected like my dad is not a doctor to the stars kind of person it just a Lebanese guy in Tennessee but they were friends suddenly and so when I started getting curious about Dolly as maybe the subject of a story I was like you know what I need you to introduce me and he did I sat down to talk with her to ask her about this Dolly moment how she thinks about it does she consider herself the grand unifier does that include everyone long these questions I thought maybe I would get a story out of it two but what ended up happening simply talking with her about her life then talking with people about her I fell into so many different rabbit holes profound questions of America kind of rabbit holes and I was like you know what I think we gotta make nine we're gonNA take nine trips into the delivers Dolly Parton America I'm Jaboomer on let's start we'll squeaky chair in front of Mike that unfortunately had a little bit of a buzz in it Dolly had us come off of her pure and simple tour capture the hearts of generations douse the tour where she famously played the pamphlet just show I'm not great at any but I can I can make a good show this good if the Jews for a hammer missile good take I'd heard you play twenty-something instruments is that right Lane Adam okay it's a little would win but not assist the mountain sounds it's not like something you'd learn Kerr play in an orchestra just discussed that old mountain sound culture Ganilau US asking house tell it like as I know it whereas I feel it what I wanted a year so decided to start the interview by playing here's some stuff of hers I'd love to play some of your early stuff okay this one tell me what comes to mind when you hear it was the worst food smith stay what is the first line lb inborn mistake ever made the doctor didn't thank me he slapped me face where does that come from that was really really early on in those early early days oh I used to ride a lot of songs.
