Dolly Parton Puts Death Rumors to Rest
Dolly Parton is responding to rumors of her death ... and proving she has a good sense of humor when it comes to just about anything.
"I did about have a heart attack when I found out I was dead," she joked to Nashville television station WKRN. "But I am feeling better than ever."
The rumors spread last Friday that Parton had died of congestive heart failure. Her "death" was reportedly announced over the loud speakers at a high school football game, and then made it all the way to FOX News.
The 62-year-old Parton, indeed alive and well, is looking forward to the next leg of her 'Backwoods Barbie' tour, along with the fall opening of the Broadway production of '9 to 5,' for which she wrote all of the music.
