Dolly Parton, the famous actor / singer, who was raised in nearby Sevierville, Tennessee, trekked over the mountains to Asheville Monday morning in order to meet up with fans and promote her new album. She also was interviewed by a local country radio station. During the interview, Parton also announced she would be hosting this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.
Parton enchanted a group of loving fans that won a radio contest to actually meet her. One fan even had had Dolly sign on her back, stating she would have the autograph turned into a tattoo, "So she could take Dolly with her anywhere". Dolly wrote nine songs on her new album Back Woods Barbie, which is currently available in stores.
