Dolly Parton was in a car crash in Nashville today. According to E Online‘s summary of local reports, it appears that Ms. Parton’s car was hit when an oncoming car didn’t yield to them. Thankfully, Dolly seems to be doing okay. She tweeted,
I was in a fender bender this morning here in Nashville, but I am all good…Just a little tired and sore. Resting at home now!
Dolly Parton is a goddamn treasure. I’m glad she’s okay. Did you catch her rapping on Queen Latifah’s show today? Here you go:

Dolly Parton has her very own very official very new Tumblr. I think she’s interesting that she took this approach with her web presence. Very hip, Dolly. Solid move. I mean, who knows if she personally works on it, but it’s still a good idea. Here’s the inaugural post:

Sorry gif haters!
Last we heard from Ms. Parton, she was working on a musical about her life. No debut date has been announced, and the last time she spoke about it was in January of 2012. In 2011 she did a film with Queen Latifah titled Joyful Noise that wasn’t released until last year, and it died a quick and quiet death at the box office. Maybe she’ll find a new audience in Tumblr and can get some more projects started. That would be neat.
Anyway, check it out. It’s pretty fun.
I said “of course” like that because this is completely magical news, and it’s only to be expected after how completely magical this whole month has been. Have you guys been feeling it? Think about it: this month we’ve gotten a slew of nudie pics from some ridiculously gorgeous women (and Lindsay Lohan!), we gotten into the holiday spirit, thanks to Courtney Stodden, and also, I’m getting married, you guys! I would say that he liked it, so he put a ring on it, but it’s not 2008 and I’m not That Girl. But it’s been such a good month, hasn’t it?
But this isn’t about me right now. This is about the beautiful Dolly Parton and her plans to pen an autobiographical musical for Broadway. She actually says that she’s in the process of writing the show right now, but that she probably won’t be acting in it when it hits Broadway. However, she did say that she’d “find a way to introduce it somehow, maybe the older me.” You just can’t keep Dolly Parton off a stage, you know.
For those of you lucky enough to have experienced the glory of Dollywood, this sounds a lot like Heartsong, doesn’t it? I wonder if you’ll get splashed with water or if leaves will fall as it turns autumn in the Great Smoky Mountains? My fingers are definitely crossed.
