Dolly Parton On Happiness, Plastic Surgery, & Being Called White Trash

"People always say 'You seem to always be so happy.' But I’m not always happy. Nobody is happy all the time. I’m a very sensitive person. I’m a songwriter, so I have to live with my feelings on my sleeve. I have to not harden my heart, because I want to stay open to feel…

7 Reasons To Love Country Music (Or At Least Give It A Chance)

I grew up in a small, rural town where muddy trucks would cruise up and down main street with rifles mounted in the back window and country music blasting from the speakers. I grew up hating country music. I thought it was stupid, cheesy, and ignorant. To me, country music was the soundtrack to a…
