What Do I Do With All This Free Time
"Hi. Everyone welcome to recovery our where we talk about life beyond the bottle and what happens after we stop drinking I'm your host Tricia and the only way I blackout now is when I lose chunks of time on tiktok. Thank you so much for joining me. On today's episode, we're going to talk about what the heck to do with your time when you stop drinking when I was drinking, my guess is that I spent about an average of five to six waking hours of every day drunk, and about five hours or probably spent hung over at a minimum. That's a lot of time wasted time, not feeling good and one of the surprises for me in quitting drinking was actually how little free time I had with my recovery program of meetings exercise therapy morning. Routine Accountability groups on social. Media Etcetera. But. You can't do that all the time you know. You can't do recovery stuff all the time every single day or you'll burn out. It's important to have hobbies to replace your old hobby of drinking, and that can be a real challenge. At first you know if you spent your entire adult life being wasted as your hobby. Someone wrote me and asked what they're supposed to do with their free time now that they're sober. You ready for the answer. Here it is. Literally, anything. Everything in anything as long as you're not drinking alcohol. KAYAKING sure why not bowling roller skating kickboxing cooking sewing painting? You could try any new hobby. You've ever dreamed of and decide if you like it. That's one of the cool parts about learning who you are in sobriety. You know it's learning what you'd like to do. I posted on social media and I asked you what kind of hobbies you were trying out in a lot of active and outdoor activities came up, which is awesome hiking yoga bike riding. Those are fantastic detri- because physical activities and things outside help. You feel better, so you recovery benefits from it to. A few weeks ago I went kayaking for the first time I was at a lake literally four minutes from my house and I'd never tried this, and I loved it and guess what I can go kayaking anytime I want to now. And I know that a lot of us are still in quarantine, so we need at home. Hobbies totally get it. I feel you. I also learned how to play an auto harp. During our shut down here in Texas instrument that I never thought I learned to play. And now I get to jam out every weekend with my man friend in our make believe band called Donna Martin graduates. Way I if you're not sure what an auto harp is, it's a stringed folk instrument that June Carter. Cash and Dolly Parton made famous super easy to play. Which is why I picked it. And you too could learn how to play an obscure instrument. You could take an online masterclass on calligraphy or painting or graffiti. You know finding an artistic outlet is huge, and this is also helpful for your Mental Health Burnett Brown says that unused creativity is not benign. Unused creativity metastases it turns into grief rage judgment sorrow. So it's helpful for your head, and for your recovery to find something to do, that's creative. This is also something you can brainstorm on how to do more stuff with your family or your partner or your kids. I found that it was kind of easy in the beginning to get stuck into this mental trap of thinking that all your free time is a curse. Now you know now that it's not spent inside a bottle. You know and I get it. I just want time to pass, so you can go to bed and get another alcohol-free day under your belt. And this is understandable, and that was me one hundred percent I feel you, but eventually your free time. is where you decide how you want to enjoy living your life, not just kill time. You are quitting drinking. Because you want a better life for yourself, and you can do that now. You have the time and the energy, and maybe even the extra money to figure out who you WANNA be. This is a blessing to you know we're meant to have fun and find things that are entertaining fulfilling, and that gives challenging new experiences. This is a good thing. Thing. And if you're struggling with getting motivated, I would really encourage you to use a calendar. You know like a paper one that you right on with a pen or a marker, especially, if you're still in quarantine and just start planning new activities commit to them, schedule them. Write them down. Prepay for them and then try them out. If you don't love 'em great now. You know you could try something else next time. But I'm hoping that you'll find ones that you do like and maybe there are things you would've never done while you were drinking. That's the goal. Live your life beyond the bottle. Eventually, you won't be just killing time. You'll be living your life and it's supposed to be a life worth living right, so find out what worth living means to you, you know. What is your Dream Life? Look like find the activities that build the foundation for that life.
What It Was Like to Interview Shima Oliaee
"Hello and welcome to fight podcasting the show in which. Discuss their craft I'm your host Sky Pillsbury. This is a post show episode in which two very special guests will talk to me about last week's episode in which I interviewed Dolly Pardons America producer. Mo only if you haven't heard that episode, I recommend going back and listening to it before you listen to this one that way, our conversation may make a little bit more sense. Today on the show I have with me, the two people most likely to remember my obsession with Dolly Parton. My wonderful parents welcome to the show, mom and Dad Hey. Hi there. Thank you so much for saying yes. Welcome On this kind of show you guys get to ask me questions. I have the first question here ready to go all right dad. Right. Do you feel a part of dollars America? That is a really good question Yes, I think am I mean I must be one hundred percent because I'm a fan, so I think by default that makes me part of her America, because you know I know who she is. I adore her like so many others. Of course that begs the question like what is Dolly, Parton America, and I think one of the points that she made in last week's episode was that Dolly is sort of this prison for everyone else's story? And I'm not sure that I have a particular story to tell but I think that the aura surrounding Dolly is sort of like. Everyone can be part of it. No matter what walk of life you come from and so I guess in that regard. Be Part of Dolly Parton America. She talked about the feelings of otherness enduring during her show. Do you resonate with that at all? I probably don't if I'm being really honest and. That's because I am very privileged in my life, so you know I am female. I'm white. I've had opportunities that many many people don't get to have. I went to college. I got a good job after college. I sort of did the things that I expected I would do. Thus far in my life. But I think that the way that I can relate with that was what Shima said about how she and Chad are both first generation Americans and you are a first generation American, Dad. And so you know what it made me think, and even in the show, because during the show Jad talks about how her dollies Tennessee Mountain home, reminds his father of his home. Overseas, you know of course I couldn't help but think about our family home in northern Finland, so of course I thought about like the listener. Any listener to this doesn't know is that I grew up going to Finland with you every summer and you know spending many many many many days. Not Whole Lot to do kind of like the countryside of Finland in this tiny town with a population of eight hundred people, where almost no one spoke English, and then of course I would spend a lot of time in Helsinki as well where people did, but you know I remember the excitement that I had the day that you got your citizenship when we were living in Hawaii. I remember you wore a suit and that was a big deal because you were is most of the time. So. You know I remember that feeling, but I don't ever feel I can't say that I ever felt other, but I. Think I knew that you at times felt authored. What about you? Well I guess what I was wondering about is. Dolly is also a what I would call a country girl. you got to know people who were definitely from the country, not from the city. That's true. Maybe I speculate that that may have had something to do with your level of comfort with Dali. Oh. That's interesting. Also expressed some interest in Loretta Lynn during that time. I loved Laura Adeline and I think I I remember i. read the Book About Her. Was the book called? Coal, miner's daughter, I don't know. I did identify with those two, but I don't know I can't like point to a memory where I connected those two things myself. You Know My love for them like I. Really Loved Donna Summer at the same time. She's not from the country and I think honestly I think. They spoke to my infatuation with Glamour, and even though I knew that they were from the country. It's sort of like they were like these unimaginable. Creatures all three of those women. They were like such a shiny thing, and then I love the music and I love to dance, but I think that I always had an interest in people who are different than me, and that's why like when we were in the countryside in Finland like I could hang out with Vinnie me. Who is the violin player? You know for hours or make friends with the girl who lived across the street Rita, even though we. We didn't speak the same language, and like really enjoy those people because it was like exposing me to this completely different way of life. You know just a way of life that I wasn't familiar with and I think that in a way Dali Donna. It sort of showed me a completely different slice of

And I just remember like how this day you know you watch TV in the morning and you see the the headlines and it's just this garbage bridge fire of political discourse and then that night Dolly Parton goes and plays a stadium show in queens and first of all everybody around me was freaking how they were so excited and now caught me off guard. I didn't realize that everybody loved Dolly. Everybody here yeah you know in New York City which is in such a dumb naive realization but it really did surprise me and then when they came back from the show everyone was telling me these stories of what it was like to go to a Dali. The show where you saw this incredibly diverse multiracial multiethnic multi age Politically diverse most importantly audience. You have all these different constituencies little slices of America Slam together and they're being polite right. I mean they weren't solving the world's problems or any nice can show there. Yeah they were hanging out so that was the moment I got really interested in Dali but I would be lying if I told you. That was the real reason I did the podcast podcast in addition to growing up in Tennessee and in addition to the two thousand sixteen thing is that in twenty thirteen So I was saying non-linear Right Twenty Thirteen my my dad is a doctor and DOLLY GETS INTO A minor car accident in Nashville and then ends up being taken to vanderbilt. My Dad is a doctor. He ends up giving her medical advice in one of those random send him to a survey she was totally fine and he was only her doctor for a second but suddenly he had a connection to her and then they got to be pals and so so as I was having this thought I had a way to get a message to her dad so it was like you know described call. That's called Ali. Yeah that was that was pretty much I would tell you something. I probably shouldn't tell you this is what I want. I mean they got to be really good friends and it was always like. I don't live in Tennessee anymore. So it wasn't in my face but like every so often his phone would ring and would be her abby that I like I didn't actually believe it was Dolly Parton because that's too weird. My Dad is not that kind of guy who hangs hangs out with famous people and so there's a part of me it didn't believe it but then she sent my dad a little guitar signed from Dolly Parton to give to one of my kids and I remember seeing seeing the guitar and seeing the big cursive on the guitar. I think he really does know Dolly Parton. Leave him at first. I didn't unbelievable unbelievable. It's not that I actively didn't believe him. I just somehow it just as like that's too weird. I can't actually fully take that in and so when I saw the guitar I thought Oh I think he really does know her and It happened to be more perfect season three and we were doing an album of of different musicians. Interpreting amendments from the Constitution petition. And so I asked him you know can i. Can you set up a meeting where I could picture on the idea of. Maybe her doing a song which she did and then at that same meeting when I finally met her. I also pitched her on this podcast as well and you know years later here we are. I'm GonNa tell you one thing that stood out to me as soon as I began to listen to the show and I've binged engine on long South Western road trip just before Thanksgiving and I noticed from the start of the Dolly Parton. podcast a thing that you're already famous for or with radio lab the intense scoring and sound effects and music which we all love With the Dalai podcast. There were these moments moments in the episode. Where obviously you'd have to play a bit of a Dolly Parton Song but you and your team would add sound effects or some new repercussion on top of it like at the end of dollar ticks? You've got Joe. Lean running like with the new backbeat. Yeah and at first I was like this is sacrilegious That mess with Dali's music. How did you get that right because you could have gotten it wrong? Yeah Yeah I've I've I've so gratified to hear that reaction This is not this is this is about Dolly Parton in a kind of multi not verse right like the SORTA I I keep using the the the metaphor of the multi-diverse like each episode is a dimension in the multi because she is kind of everywhere like she has has many many worlds. She talks to so many different people. She has different Chapters in her life that are radically different. And so for me. Like one. Dimension of the multi-diverse was the way that Dali's music travels the way that it can almost like pierce genre and in cut at an angle across twelve genres. And so for me. It was important to try that musically try to embody that musically And so I you know I I did it a lot in certain places and then I played it for some people. And they're like too much STU Miley so then I scaled back and try to just be small footprint about it. I ended up remixing. Joe Lean in the process. Because I just couldn't help it. Listen jet just hearing when you say that as soon as you say I ended up remixing Joe Lean. My heart stops such a big risk. They don't say don't say you don't say your beauty is beyond was there one remix or update of one of her songs that you had done and you can't do it. This will not work. I I would never touch. I don't think anyone ever should touch. I will always love you. you messing with too much too much culture road. If you and Dahlie made a Admi will always love you remix for the album. I would listen I would will shoot you if Dolly walked in the room. Said Jad were doing this. I would do it. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean she said no to Elvis on that song. The you know that story. No now he wanted to make that song and I think his His business person whose name I'm forgetting colonel. Something or other colonels. He he wanted wanted to own half the publishing. Oh No that's Sally Song. And she's like no she wasn't she wasn't a huge star at that point but she's still learning down so I I am really interested. In the timing of this podcasts launch. It comes in two thousand nineteen which kind of seems like Dali's year like this Dolly. We're watching. She's been on a bunch of awards. Shows Getting Honors Performa people. She has a Netflix show. Then there's your podcast as well. Did you plan this timing. Just worked out out that way. I had hoped to release it earlier in the year. I knew that she had stuff happening late in the year. I didn't realize it was going to be quite to this level I know that with Dolly I. I know speaking to her manager. Dana Zell he He will tell you the decade ago. Maybe a little bit longer. A her fan base was mostly over the age of sixty. You know because I mean when I grew up with Dolly just a touch point g there was the the islands in the Stream. Dolly there was nine to five Joe. Lean and then there was like a long eighties period where she was making pop hits but she wasn't and I'm talking late late eighties. She wasn't hugely relevant to people my age or because the late eighties were full of music. That was not Dali's music. Exactly heavy abrasive pop exactly and she dabbled in some of that stuff. You know in in a tiny way and but yeah I know. She wasn't like speaking to a young teenage kid the way that she seems to be right now. But what Danny will tell you that you know over that decade and maybe it has a little bit to do with her being unhappy Montana and being aunt Dolly and because all of those young people right huge audience massive audience all those. Those young fans grew up with Miley Cyrus and they had like kind of crazy Dolly who kind of became their aunt and so now though all those people are in their thirties and they're loving Dali as adults adults. And so. That's what Dolly will tell you. God's heart of it yeah like you know. Miley helped kind of bridge her to an entirely new demographic. God bless Miley. Yeah Yeah but I also think it's partially it's Dali represents a thing in our culture right now that very few other people represent which is this person who can span ban difference who can kind of talk to everybody and I think that's and she has lived in epic life. Anybody who knows anything about Dolly knows knows that she is like the female odysseus like she has journeyed An incredible dirty and there. I think that is speaking to people like that longevity. I think really speaks to people time for a break when we come back. How is Dolly Parton political without ever saying anything political.

"Coming up on the frame Chad. Auburn Rod on the discovery that led to his new podcast Dolly Parton America. Of course you know Dolly Parton as a singer and actor. But she's also a prolific songwriter. Writer she's written nearly three thousand songs in her more than fifty years of making music and not only that as Dali has grown older. Her fans have grown younger longer and more diverse. The new podcast Dolly PARTON AMERICA TRIES TO UNDERSTAND THE UNIFYING force behind the self deprecating artists. Who wrote a song long called backwoods Barbie Chad album rod is the host of the podcast? You might know him from the public radio. Show radio lab throughout the series. He makes. It's the case that Dolly's music has something important to say about. The current state of our country. Jazz Connection Department goes back to his own childhood. Growing up in Nashville Nashville. It was not the Nashville of now. The national of now as hipster wonderland that is like the southern Brooklyn right but at the time when I was there it was not that it was a it was a kind of like moderately big city that was definitely wrapped in southern culture. And so as a as a Lebanese I didn't feel that. Welcome there there I left Nashville with a certain narrative in my mind about that place and what that place was and what it meant to me And one of the background motivations for for me in doing the series was to go back to national and actually like look at it in a more truthful way and it's worth noting to that. Were it not for your father. This podcast cast might not have happened. That's exactly right. I mean twenty thirteen Dahlie is with her manager. I believe her friend Judy Ogle and therein in an oblique black. Suv they get into a minor car accident. She's taken to Vanderbilt Hospital and my dad happened to be on. Call that day He's a doctor. And then they just kind of quickly transitioned to being Powell's but it was always kind of weird background question. Like what on Earth could they have in common. I mean she's he's looking global popstar and he's just like a a guy he's just He's an amazing doctor. An amazing guy not someone that hangs out with famous people and then Independent of that. I became interested in Dali in two thousand sixteen this during the election during sort of right at the very every moment where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were just like in an all out brawl and At the very moment Dali comes to Queens and does a stadium show. I want you to know I remember how real everybody was around me. Grow every a different kind of American whose presence be funny. Just you had people of faith standing next men in drag standing next to Guys and trucker hats and everybody was play. Everyone was getting along and everybody was singing going into the same song. That was really interesting to me so I got interested in her because of that concert answer I had a way to get her now through my dad and so then that's kind of how the whole thing was born in. Interestingly I end like there was a moment where through Dahlie I understood my dad in his journey from Lebanon to America a whole lot better. I WanNa play moment from the fourth episode. It's called Neon on Moss. And it's when you go to visit Dali's mountain home. His snake black snake. It spent maybe ten minutes just kind of wandering around half expecting bear to come stumbling out of the woods. Ah just running around everywhere in bears aside the whole time I couldn't shake this feeling like I had been here before. I I want to ask about that idea about familiar in an unfamiliar place. What were you getting on there? We got to go to Dolly's Tennessee Mountain home. which is sort? Have you heard a clip of of US walking around the grounds there and just to put that in context. I'm antic you'll you'll understand this. Because of your natural routes but Dolly's Tennessee Mountain home is like aac hallowed ground in the south you know it's the subject objective twenty thirty of her songs anthems southern anthems and so it's like this mythic place. It's like Tennessee Valhalla. Right we ended up going there and I didn't even think it existed. I thought it was just sort of an idea. At this point. We ended up going there and so we end up walking around and the thing that really struck me Eh. You heard a bit of there. Is that her her home. It looked eerily similar to my dad's Lebanese mountain. The home which was just a shack in the mountains almost exact same elevation that sort of layering of one experience on another led me to have have a conversation with my dad Where you know he basically explained to me like in a bunch of different ways like this is what Dolly Parton and I have in common like she is? This is kind of the transcendent goddess of our pain and loss of home and that was a real eye opening thing for me to see that their experiences could be mirrored. She singing songs about Lebanon. Even when singing songs about Tennessee. It feels like the subtitle of this podcast could be challenging assumptions. And it's a lot of assumptions that you have about who Tali Pardon is and what her music means and I'm wondering as your reporting this spending time with her. What were the things that you assumed to be true that you were really I guess wrong about? I grew up with a very narrow image of Dolly Parton. You know like I knew the song job. Lean I knew the song nine eighty five but mostly what I knew of her is that she would go on like late night. TV eyebrows my melons to the Big Apple Letterman. With like joke about her breasts rests and then she would joke about her breasts and she was just as like Kinda hilarious larger than life persona was kind of what I knew. You've heard that was sort of my starting point but then when I actually sat down with her and we went kinda album by album through her discography like the first thing that hits you is Oh my God odd. She has written a lot of music. Like Oh my God going back to nineteen sixty six sixty seven you realize this is one of the great songwriters. Writers are era and she hasn't really been given her do as a songwriter You know people talk about this like cultural figure. As this these days you hear it talked about as a feminist you hear talked about as a business woman but I feel like one of the stories that I hope will be told in the next few years and we certainly tried to tell on. The podcast is like this is somebody who deserves to be put on par with Bob Dylan the number of songs that she's written for as long as she's written them Yeah Yeah like that. Would that blew me away. That was one of the many things that really ultimately surprise me but then the surprises just kept unfurling from there. We're talking with John Auburn about his podcast. Dolly PARTON 's America. I WANNA play a little bit from a song of hers called wildflowers.

"dolly parton" Discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour
"Female artists ever ever and I feel like in a lot of ways. He has this way of making her both more complicated and less complicated than she. Is that That like a lot of the her decision for example not to talk about politics is about maintaining that q score is a marketing decision and frankly the F. A.. Pretty understandable one and yet the show doesn't really bother tangling with with the persona that she's crafted and is much more interested interested it seems in describing the different kind of wins that that flow through the trees in the Tennessee Mountain. I I have to say. I agree with the overarching point. I think that you're making that. There is probably too much kind of magic talk but I think on the feminism answer I would strongly disagree. I don't Find No. I am not a feminist to be invasive answer I think many of her other answers are evasive. I think she comes by her rejection of that label very honestly honestly to to be truthful but get what she saying in. There was a terrific threat on twitter by a twitter user named. Rachel doesn't otherwise I don't otherwise. No name Who Really explained that from her perspective? Dolly Parton is like a lot of poor rural white women who felt the feminism in the nineteen seventies nineteen eighties was simply not interested in them and if anything was embarrassed by them and and refused to engage with their issues and what it reminded me of was Terry grosses interview with Liz. Oh where you learn that for Terry Gross the way that Liz oh posing zing nude on an album cover was sort of like anti feminist in a way and the only thing maybe that would make it feel brave was that she she is a fat woman and otherwise that's cheapening yourself essentially and they had a great conversation about how differently they come to that question and I think for Dolly Parton who was exposed to a lot of feminism in the seventies and eighties as somebody who not only was very very country but also was kind of a sex pot kind of on purpose and enthusiastically so and she will tell you. She's made a lot of jokes but at the same time she also kind kind of got stuck in that. I think especially in the eighties for a long time in particular. If you heard the name Dolly Parton you were about to hear something about boobs and not about music. And I think she honestly slee rejects that label because she does not is not happy with her experiences. With feminism for me they fuss around with the music a lot and that bothers me. It bothers me when they take a song. That's in a major key and isolate the vocal and put a minor key under it. So that it. Because they're in a sad part of that stuff I don't like and here's a clip. I WANNA play this clip of Dolly Parton singing a song casually during an interview while a version of it plays a under her and said uh no different editor. Meet again this I I will need you on that. They're not in the same key. It makes me WANNA tear my hair out. You can do that Bit Jessica. Reedy has done similar bits even on our show that audio production Idea of sneaking up the music underneath what she's saying and in terms of the sound design Zayn a couple of you have mentioned the kind of little bits of things and I wanNA play you a clip Also of when they're explaining her relationship with Puerto Wagner who was a very established country artists. Who put her on his television show which is kind of what originally made her famous and they worked together and how to various she puts it love hate relationship when Jad God is explaining that relationship there? Is this clip everyone. We talked to told us that from the very moment they started those duets will. There was magic. It was like Fred and ginger those all right to John in June maker fire hazard happened. There's just keep going with those kind of people who just clicked. We had a great bland in our voices. So I know who Fred and ginger. If I didn't know who Fred and Ginger are. That clip doesn't help me. That's what makes it feel over designed to me. There's a lot of talk about like like she won't get political and so she won't be divisive in that way. She's a connector not a divider but I think that's right there in the music as well. I think of her as a folk singer more more than I think of her as a country singer and when she talks about the old country she means the British isles. She's a folk singer or country singer with no boogeyman dougy man. And that's so unusual. She grew up poor but her songs aren't about hating rich people. She grew up country. She doesn't sing about hating city. People like we we you know. We didn't have all these fancy things. It doesn't say that she just describes what she loves. She even writes these Proto feminist songs without pointing at the patriarchy. She's he's just saying I'm gonNA write a song about abortion or miscarriage or Young women be abandoned by their partners. And I'm not going to say it's political but you hear it and of course it it's of course you're devastated and that's because it's a political right you know so she. It's frustrating that the episodes that felt the most disjointed had some some of the most interesting content. I mean I engage with her as an incredibly smart businesswoman. Who is also someone who has been credibly rich now for a very long time? MM is very protected by security and staff and managers and I think to some degree she doesn't want to talk about. Politics takes for the same reason a lot of rich. People don't want to talk about politics. which is it's unpleasant? And I don't have to think about it if I don't want to one other interesting. Political thing is in the episode with the. I agree with you to non evasive answer about feminism. I was glad the point wasn't belabored. Like does it break your heart. Feminists that Dolly isn't isn't a feminist. I'm perfectly comfortable like letting that remain complex and I do think that does a good job of then bringing in guests that highlight how I might live a feminist life and not claim that word and that ultimately I really like that about the show. He asks these tough questions some of which I hope that he gets. It's back to you but so far I think he's doing a good job of highlighting like you were saying giving us all enough to chew on week to week. I enjoy this show on balance. You know what I'm picking apart this show picking apart something that I'm still finding very engaging. Yeah I'm going to keep coming back. I don't know I I don't know if I'll finish it or not.

Women Shine at the 2019 CMAs
"CMA awards are known as country. Music's biggest night at the third annual award show last evening the stated focus was celebrating legendary women in country music but for many fans of Country Countries Superstar Carrie Underwood who's also a long running host of the ceremony. The night was a bit of a letdown. Here's Nashville based NPR music critic. Ann Manpower's the status of women in country. Music is a hot topic in Nashville. These days and it has been since two thousand fifteen when Keith Hill who radio consultant made some comments since that gave rise to the phenomenon known as Tomato Gate or salad gate. He basically said that the reason that women were not often played on country radio. Oh is because they were the tomatoes in the salad of country music just there for an accent. Unfortunately the data backs up. What Hill was saying? It's shocking looking how little there played compared to men so there's been a grassroots movement activist groups like change. The conversation down here is it's a big one that have really fought back against this and women are organizing women artists organizing and one way that people respond to these kinds of challenges. Challenges is to mess with award shows. Because you know what John. It's easier to mess with an award show then to mess with the radio format. Sadly yeah I saw on the red carpet Jennifer nettles from the band Sugarland War Cape. That said play our expletive records. Did that message carry out into the show in terms of what people we're saying as they were picking up awards. Oh definitely a one. High Point was when Casey mass graves one for female artists of the year. She gave really heartfelt acceptance speech where she talked about. How female energy is important? Not just for country music but for the earth right now. It's kind of like Greta tune. Bergen Komo moments. But you know that vibe ran through the night in the way that the hosts spoke the evening was hosted by three women usually it's hosted by Carrie underwood and Brad Paisley. But instead of Brad we had to legends of Country Music Reba mcentire and Dolly Parton three women hosting the CMA's Ama's your lucky and definitely surfaced. When women won awards I I guess one or two of the dudes mentioned something to I think Dan Shea The duo who won I think they made a comment about how wonderful it was to see. So many women

"We did a little QNA, and I don't even think the cameras were rolling at this point. She was just answering questions a girl stood up and Astor question. And, and after she sat back down Dolly answered her question than just said, I knew, you know, I don't think so she goes no one knew you got you on camera going through much trash, and then she just looked she goes, you know, somebody loves he when they go through your trash. And we were like, oh my gosh. What's happening is okay? Do we need to remove this person or is it but Dolly was great? She, she let her know. I know exactly who you are. And annot your little intense, but I'm going to be classy, and we're going to keep this conversation going, and everything's gonna be okay. And she handled it beautifully. Wow. And I learned right than in. There's like, okay. Being famous is hard, but you can still be really classy with how you handle people, and that is such a good point. It, it just blew my mind and, and she could have been very upset about. Well, she could've walked in the room and said, I need you to take that girl out of here or whatever, you know, and hope she wouldn't mind me telling the story, I don't think she would it it's all just to say she handles herself with so much class, and grace and is very kind to people, very, very kind of people, and if Dolly Parton, you know, one of a small handful of the most famous people on planet earth can handle herself that way, then everybody needs to get it together, and always, always early, and always professional and never lets us down ever. And I just I hold everybody to that standard probably unfairly. But how do you think why do you think do you think that's how she is so successful, one of the reasons why obviously, she's one of the greatest song. Writers singers performers artists of all time. But I'm top of it. She has his work ethic, this kindness. Do you think that has attributed to her? Yeah. Superstardom. Yeah. Absolutely work ethic. You know, few notice people's work ethic, as artists, can you tell with artists coming through new ones who has work ethic, and who doesn't? Yeah, absolutely. And there are times, I again, I wouldn't name names, but there's been a few artists were thought you don't have the best force, and you're pretty good looking, you know, and you, you dress. Okay. But there's I can sense this work ethic. And I'm like you're gonna blow everybody away and you're gonna be here. Twenty years from now. And, and I have seen it over and over again. And. Yes, an-, and people like Dolly, she so likable, you just wanna root for her people. Love Blake Shelton. You know what is it about Blake? Do you think people love, I sense of humor?.

"Your cards, if you are. Dolly Parton was Dolly Parton and Neil sadaqa and Barry Manilow the three people that did nothing. But support me. My earliest days of writing meant the world to me. They would listen to every song I would send them. They would give me feedback on every one. I mean it just I, I'll never forget that. You know you, you try to forget the cruelties of certain people, but I never forget the kindnesses. And that's the type of person I've tried to be, you know, ever since I can be that for another person, he starting out in this business. Today with somebody that's point that very same thing and you try to pass it on. No. On one less thing for let you go because I got you do so much. You've just mentioned, I'm editing a movie, just this the side hustle, you're doing your writer and a singer and actor and your charitable, and you're in movies, and you have written just a darling children's book and I would love. I've love for my listeners to hear about it. Can you just tell them about it really quickly? Yeah, it it. It's based on a little. Basically. It's based on the story of David and Goliath that I made a musical out of children last year called the little giant with a friend of mine named David Pomeranz. We wrote a half an hour musical for kids, and it was fun and one of the songs and it was called. What is your stone based on one of my rabbinical trips to Israel where our teacher made us go down to the brook of a lower David picked off his five smooth stone and then and then our teacher looked at us and said, what is your stone? Where are you going to throw it. To that the chaos. When are you gonna throw your Shalom, everything you know about the Lord at the chaos of this world. So we wrote a little song. What is your stone William throw in? What is your guest? How knowing what is the one thing that you can do that no one else can do, but you what is what is your stone? And it dawned on me that we ask our children, the wrong questions from the time they're little. We ask them, what do you wanna be when you grow up? When I think the better question to ask our children as what is God already created you to be south every gift already in you, wonderfully and fearfully made in your mother's womb. Got his already given you those gifts..

"So you can now take an honors course at the university of Tennessee that's called Dali's America. And it's this seminar where they use Dali's life story to help better understand Appalachian culture, though Dali grew up about half an hour or so from Knoxville where the university's main campuses and the class actually looks at things like stereotypes of hillbillies and the way they represented in popular culture. It's it's class. I'd probably like the take. So this is gonna sound strange, but we actually have to thank at least partially for the existence of Buffy the vampire. Slayer Buffy. That's the one. So back in the eighties, Dalian or former measure and roommate sandy gallon founded this production company called sand dollar and dollar actually co produced Buffy as well as it's been off angel and gallon was listed as an exact producer, but partner she stayed out of the spotlight. Even though she she deserves some of the credit. Wow, you know, I think we've talked about this before, but of course you. Member Dali, who was the sheep that was the first successful cloning of a mammal. Well, it was in fact named after Dolly Parton. Now the sheets original name was six. L l three, which is not quite as catchy in my opinion, but supposedly one of the stockmen who was there at the time of six l. threes birth decided to give her the name Dolly because she was cloned from a memory. So now I don't think we have to explain that one, but it makes you wonder like if Dolly Parton would have been offended by this, but as she always does, she just rolled with it and said, I was honored, there's no such thing as bad publicity's. I like that she even made it into a little joke. There. So I think it's funny that Dahlie wants decide to enter a Dolly Parton lookalike contest in Los Angeles, and this was just for the fun of it. But the best part obviously is that she didn't come anywhere close to winning a apparently. They felt that she was too short to be convincing, and the winner ended up being someone in drag. And she, of course, just found this entirely hilarious. But the good thing was that she actually got to walk around some of our biggest fans, and no one, no one in the audience noticed her. That's awesome. Here's something that I'm excited about. There's apparently an anthology series based on Dolly songs that's being developed for net flicks and supposedly will be released next year. That'll be an eight part series. And each episode will be based on a different Dolly Parton song and they haven't announced which songs yet and they're obviously so many to choose from, but I'm really looking forward to seeing it. Yeah, that's incredible. Well, as if we needed any more proof that Dolly always remembers where she came from and hasn't forgotten how to do things yourself, do you know that before she goes on tour, Dolly, actually cooks a bunch of food puts it all in freezer bags, and then loads it up on the bus. And she says, quote, I do cook for a week before I go on tour. So I put stuff in the freezer. So we'll have great country food. If we don't have what I want at all the places we stop. Oh, man, that is so wonderful. Yeah, I, I can't decide which fact I love most in all of this, but just thinking about like the fact that she is partially responsible for Buffy. Being out there, but taking almost no credit as a producer, the whole humility around the look alike contest. And of course, always remembering where she came from with that last fact Van Gogh, I think I have to give you the trophy this week. I was so nervous. You were gonna say, I think I have to give it to Tristan because he's still wearing the wig. Hundred side now I might have given it to him, but the wig is just it's really kind of fallen out of place. So it's just just getting worse. Now, you know what, as always we love hearing facts from our listeners.
