Dolly Parton to Open Up to Dan Rather in Hour-Long Interview
Dolly Parton has sold more than 100 million records, starred in award-winning films, and built a multi-million dollar enterprise, Dollywood. But while the 68-year-old has talked often about her professional life, she hasn’t opened up much about her personal life — until now.
The songstress will sit down with veteran TV anchor Dan Rather for an in-depth interview on AXS-TV’s ‘The Big Interview,’ which will air on Monday, April 14.
The hour-long chat will cover everything from her philanthropic efforts — including her worldwide Imagination Library — her many business endeavors, and her role as one of the most successful female artists of all time.
The Country Music Hall of Fame member is still moving full speed ahead with her career. She just wrapped up the first leg of her Blue Smoke World Tour in New Zealand and Australia, and will kick off the United States leg of the trek on May 22 in Tulsa, Okla. In addition, she is overseeing a $300 million expansion in her Tennessee theme park, and says she doesn’t plan to slow down anytime soon.
“I feel like I’m just startin’,” she says. “I’m still trying to grow and come up with new dreams every day and make ‘em come true.”
