All snark aside, Dolly Parton is a national treasure and should have been honored like this a long time ago.

A bust of Dolly Parton, or the bust of Dolly Parton? It's all in the phrasing.

True story.... Several friends and I went to Dollywood for some fun. We all wanted to ride the roller coaster.  We all wait in line and finally, its our turn.  I get up there and they can't close the safety harness over my chest!!

You would think that a place called "Dollywood" would accommodate for my boobs.

Agreed.  Dolly is the patron Saint of the mountains.  And yes, you can replace "West Virginia" with "Dolly Parton" when singing Country Roads, and it sounds just fine ;)

From TFA:
Former President Obama said last month that it was a "screwup" that he failed to honor Parton with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
"She deserves one. I'll call Biden," Obama said of the president-elect.


Thanks, Obama.  Seriously, that's not the snarky "Thanks, Obama", but a genuine expression.  Give this woman EVERY humanitarian award we can come up with.

For those that don't know, Dolly has:
Given money directly to people impacted by the Gatlinburg fires a couple years ago, including a final "bonus" payment that was completely unexpected

Donated money to Vanderbilt University Hospital to use for research as they see fit.  The funds ended up going toward Moderna's COVID Vaccine research.  Dolly was unaware of this until she was contacted by media after her name appeared in the credits of a journal article.

Sends age-appropriate books to kids across the country and beyond as part of Dolly Parton's Imagination Library.  Over 150 million books sent, so far.

Created an eagle sanctuary at Dollywood.

Changed the name of "Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede"  last year, when people pointed out that "Dixie" had negative connotations to some people.  In discussing  the change she said "'Well, I don't want to offend anybody. This is a business. We'll just call it the Stampede" and "As soon as you realize something is a problem, you should fix it.  Don't be a dumbass".

Been an outspoken supporter of LGBT rights.

Missing: She entered a Dolly-Parton-Look-Alike Drag contest.  And lost.

And instead of being upset, she was amazed and flattered at all the work that the Queens put in to nail her look, and her mannerisms.

If that's not grace and dignity, I don't know what is.

STATUE =/= BUST.

Part of the reason Dolly's glorious boobs look so big is because the rest of her is borderline freakish tiny.

I will say if they get much bigger, I'll be like Beth off of South Park.

Like any large structure, you might need a larger footprint.  Perhaps you need to reserve two normal size spaces for the installation.

Grande Ole Gal: Elizabeth Eppinger Trantham, German immigrant to Maury Country, reportedly lived to be anywhere from 132 to 154 years old when she died.  One thing is certain - Betsy passed away on January 10th, 1834.  She supposedly she bore her 12th child at 65 years old.  Betsey's grave is unmarked.  She is believed to be buried in the Goshen United Methodist Church Cemetery in Santa Fe, Tennessee.

Never forget the originals
