Everyone’s favorite country queen Dolly Parton reached a career milestone last week when she released her 42nd studio album. Can you believe that? Another milestone? It was also the highest-charting album for the six-decade songstress.
What I’ve always loved about Dolly is that, despite all her fame and success, she’s never once forgotten who she is or where she came from. Home and family mean everything to her, as she recently told The Marietta Daily Journal…
“I’ve never thought of myself as a star, I still don’t. I am a working girl. I love what I do, but I still stay close to my family. I still appreciate the value of a dollar. All I have to do is think who we were, where we came from. I think of Momma and Daddy, that’s why I write so many songs about my home, but I stay grounded because of my family and my friends…I always say I count my blessings a lot more often than I count my money.”
How wonderful! There’s something so pure and refreshing about carrying your family and home with you wherever you go. Thanks for your ever-lasting inspiration, Dolly! xoxo
