I’ve always loved the fans in Scotland and have a little Scottish blood of my own.
I can’t do nothing just a little.
Every day I pray about all I do.
I have a tendency to be awfully big-hearted and it’s very hard for me to say no, even when I need to.
I’m almost like three people. There’s me the, Dolly, the person. There’s me, the star. And then there’s me, the manager.
I was probably 7 years old when I started playing the guitar and writing some serious songs.
I think that I know the value of a dollar.
I think that I’m perfect.
My grandpa was a preacher.
People don’t realize that we, we meaning people in show business, have the same problems as everyone else. Money doesn’t change that. Fame doesn’t change that. Sometimes that brings on more problems. You know, it’s just a different kind of problems.
I’m trying my best to keep up with all this new technology, and I surround myself with all these wonderful people that are in the know and kind of help me out with all that.
I wear wigs all the time on shows, and every day when I’m in public, at Dollywood. People say, ‘How many wigs do you have?’ And I say, ‘Well, at least 365 because I wear at least one a day.’
I always ask God to work through me and let me be a light of some kind and help in this world, so I always pray for that, and I always want to do good.
I’ve never had that much trouble with the paparazzi, but I don’t run the same circles that a lot of these people that do get hounded by the paparazzi.
I always thought that if I made it big or got successful at what I had started out to do, that I wanted to come back to my part of the country and do something great, something that would bring a lot of jobs into this area.
